We are adding Petly, a free online portal for your pet to help you manage your pet's healthcare! Starting this week, we will be implementing a new reminder/confirmation system that will utilize emails and texting. Initially you will continue to receive postcards to remind you when your pet is coming due for any services. If you have an email in our system, you should also get an email wherein you will be directed to your options for future communications. You will have the choice to opt in or out of receiving postcards/email/texts for reminders and for phone calls/emails/texts for confirmations. You can do this via Petly. If you have a valid email on your account here, you should receive an email invitation to join Petly! Check your junk mail or Spam to make sure the invite didn't end up there. If you don't receive this email, call us and we can send an invite. Also, on Petly, you can view and print vaccine records for your pet, as well as request prescriptions.

We hope everyone enjoys the new options and please call us if you have any issues or questions.
