A Message From Our Team Regarding COVID-19

Due to the tightening of business restrictions from the Coronavirus Pandemic, beginning tomorrow at 7 am, (Thursday, March 19th) Village Park Animal Hospital will be closing our lobby and seeing patients without their owners in the clinic. Veterinary Hospitals are considered an “essential” business and will remain open with some modifications. We will station a receptionist on our front porch and they will direct you to park and remain in your vehicle. The receptionist will then radio the technicians that you are here, and the techs will call your cell to get the history. The technicians will get your pet from your car and bring them inside the hospital. Our Doctors will examine your pet and call you with recommendations. You will then be checked out by phone.

We are currently experiencing some delays in keeping certain foods and medications in stock and we greatly encourage you to use our VETSOURCE link to order your foods and medications directly, when possible, which will then be shipped to your home. Its a very straightforward process, and it will save you a trip to our hospital. Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

Appointments that do require your pet to be seen with you in attendance will be seen in an outside enclosure.

Thank you for your understanding and assistance in helping keep everyone safe.
This will help to direct resource efforts more towards you and your pet instead of disinfecting. We hope you understand our goal to keep all of us healthy … (you, your pets, and our staff!)

There will be a new roundabout in right in front of our animal hospital. Click here to view a map that details the construction zone, time frame and alternate routes to get to us.

Wendi Brant Pet Rescue Fund

We are proud of our ability to provide in house funding through our Wendi’s Fund that we now have managed through the AVMF. This fund grew out of a need Dr. Carlson found to honor a close friend who was murdered the year she opened her practice. Through the years, this fund has provided needed support for many individual cases. We recently have had this fund managed by AVMF which allows our money to also help pets far from our practice.

Please visit the link that describes the AVMF and its role in funding for many animal needs.

Welcoming atmosphere, fast triage, fair prices, wonderful grooming experience, and friendly employees all around. My dogs get so excited everytime they go for grooming. Love this place! I won’t take my dogs anywhere else.
