Change to our business hours: Weather permitting, we plan to open at 10 am today (Friday).

An alternative for emergency visits is the Waco Animal Emergency Clinic at 254-752-6100. They are usually open 24 hours per day, but you should call first to be sure they are there in this weather.

Pets in cold weather: Pets, like people, can suffer frostbite and hypothermia at below freezing temperatures.  Having fur helps them, but they still get cold and can suffer if left outside during very cold weather.  After being outside in icy or snowy weather, wipe their paws and fur dry.  Wash their feet if they have walked on any salt or deicers used on sidewalks or roads.  Pets can be outside for 15-20 minutes in cold weather for potty breaks, but use your best judgement.  Small and short-haired dogs may need jackets to spend any time outside.  Also beware of feral cats who get up into car engines seeking warmth.  Bang on your car's hood and make some noise to scare them off before getting into your car and starting the engine.  We have seen some pretty severe injuries to cats that were under the hood when the car started.

Above all, please keep yourselves and your pets safe.

Our Waiting Room has re-opened, but we ask that all clients wear a mask to come inside.  Please call or use the appointments link below to make appointments.  If you do not have a mask, please call us from the parking lot.  We will come out to retrieve your pet.
