TO OUR CLIENTS: OUR RESPONSE TO cOVID-19
**Have an appointment with us? Please read this first:
The health and safety of our clients and our staff is our first priority during this unprecedented pandemic. We are open, but we are following the American Veterinary Medical Association's guidelines for continuing patient care during this stressful time, and doing everything we can to slow the spread of COVID-19. Please note that a date for allowing clients inside has not yet been determined, and curbside operations will continue for the time being.
For the safety of our doctors and support staff, we are requiring all clients to remain OUTSIDE the building. When you arrive, you must call us and check in over the phone. We will collect a history on your pet, gather necessary information and then send a staff member out in protective gear to assist you and/or collect your pet for their necessary treatment. Note that we will ask you some screening questions for the health and safety of our staff and technicians at check-in, at every appointment. *Failure to bring a cell phone to your visit may result in delays to your appointment; your understanding is greatly appreciated.*
As of September 2021, we are requiring masks be worn once again by all clients and staff.
We require that you wait in your car, and the doctor and/or reception staff will communicate with you by phone. Payment will be collected over the phone by card so that all payments may be contactless. *Please note that you must remain on hospital premises for the duration of your pet's appointment unless other arrangements are made ahead of time and approved by the hospital director. Clients who leave the premises after their pet is taken in without prior arrangement with the veterinarian will have a caging fee starting at $10 added to their invoice at check-out.
If you are simply picking up an item, like food or medication, call us and we will collect payment over the phone and bring your item(s) out to you when you arrive.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this arrangement may cause, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
Please note: due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we are not accepting new clients at this time, and we are unable to make exceptions to this rule. The most up-to-date referral information we currently have is detailed below (subject to change without notice):

* Please note: emergency facilities in our area are experiencing unprecedented demand for care and as such you may have a much longer wait time than usual. The nationwide shortage of veterinary care workers (including veterinarians themselves) has caused occasional disruptions in emergency room availability. We strongly recommend that if you are able, call the emergency facility of your choice before heading there with your pet to make certain they have a doctor available.
We are a small animal veterinary hospital located on the mesa in beautiful Santa Barbara, California. On our website, you will find information about our staff, our services, and other helpful information about our hospital. We invite you to call us at (805) 963-1544 if you would like to schedule an appointment, or if you would like any other information about the services we offer for your pet.
*Please note that we no longer have a holistic veterinarian on staff. We do not offer any holistic veterinary services at this time, nor do we plan to in the future.
