Feeling Trapped by four walls ? By Keri Lyall

Special Update From Dr. Utchen & Our Team

An update on new plans: Starting in May we will resume performing more routine procedures such as spaying and neutering, vaccinations, and well-checks. We genuinely appreciate your patience as we curtailed those typically non-urgent procedures as part of our initial COVID-19 response plan. In the next few weeks, you can look forward to our team calling you to schedule routine surgeries as we continue our return to full service.
