We're pleased to offer the following services in our Center Veterinary Clinic:
All surgeries are scheduled by appointment only, Surgeries are performed Monday-Thursday and on special occasions, Fridays. We typically only perform around 2 or 3 anesthetic procedures in a day, so our calendar does tend to stay booked about a month in advance. Call to schedule an appointment so we can work your pet in as soon as possible.
If you have livestock or horses that need to be seen, we suggest calling the clinic to see if we can assist with the situation. We do provide some services but it can be limited. We usually work in large animal visits by appointments only.
We do not make appointments for small animal visits, but gladly accept walk-ins during the morning hours of 8am-10am or in the afternoons from 2pm-4pm. It is always advised to call before coming and we can usually work you in most every weekday. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability.
Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty during the week, and also staff on call during the weekend, who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately.
Shelby Veterinary Associates operates an open hospital. This means that our team welcomes owners to be with their animals during any non-surgical medical procedure.
Shelby Veterinary Associates accepts payment via cash, check, MasterCard, or Visa. So that we can continue to provide you high quality service utilizing the best medical technologies, we request that payment be made in full at the time services are rendered.
We also accept CareCredit which offers promotional financing on medical expenses for you and your pet. They assist with out of pocket costs, if approved, with oftentimes little or no interest.
