Please note:  Though our office is not closed due to COVID-19 we are encouraging those who need us to follow these guidelines :) –  masks are optional…Come in and sign in by the front desk, be sure to leave a cell phone number if you are going to wait in your car.  There are limited seats in the waiting room and you are welcome to wait in the waiting room if a seat is available.  We are still taking longer between patients due to our cleaning procedures, so even though you may not see another client, it may take a moment as we are likely preparing to see your pet.  

Regular Office Hours: 

While these are the hours of operation;  please realize that there are only a limited number of patients that can be seen during these hours, therefore, we may have to “cut-off” walk-ins well before our closing time. 

  • Monday & Wednesday: 8:30 – 11:30 am and 2:00 – 6:00 pm
  • Tuesday – by appointment only 8:30 am – 12:00 (Noon)
  • Thursday: 8:30 am – 12:00 (Noon)
  • Friday: 8:30 – 11:30 am and 2:00 – 5:00 pm
  • Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED


Please Note:  Starting in June of 2021 on Tuesdays only we will begin taking appointments for our Tuesday Schedule.  During the rest of the week we will continue on a walk-in only basis.  Unless you have an appointment on Tuesday, you will have to walk in on another day.

PLEASE be aware that  IN THE EVENT OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, OUR OFFICE WILL  BE CLOSED IF THE DEKALB COUNTY SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED.  During the time of Covid and virtual school – the best policy is to call during our regular hours and see if we are open if there is snow or ice.

If you have the need for medication refills – call the office and leave a message. We will make every effort to have them filled within 48 hours.

If you have an emergency please call St. Francis   404-924-2000.

Important Announcements:

Please be aware that due to our size we are unable to process pet-insurance claims and we can only provide copies of the notes from the visit that include the pricing for the visit – not itemized statements, as we are not using a computerized system for notes.
