Update 8/3/2020:

To Our Cats Only Family,

We want to say thank you for everyone’s patience, understanding and support these last few months.  As many of you have already discovered we have been extraordinarily busy since reopening for non-emergency appointments in June.   Honestly it has been quite the wild ride!  Please know that we are doing everything we can to get everyone seen as soon as possible with the most urgent given priority. We expect these longer wait times for appointments to continue.

While we would love to see everyone in person, we will continue to see patients using a Curbside Concierge Model. Only staff will be allowed in the building. This will be continuing until further notice.  So how does this work?

  1. When you arrive please park UP FRONT next to one of the orange cones.
  2. Call the office phone # 315-637-1134 to let us know you are here. Please leave a message if we do not answer. We will be with you as soon as possible.
  3. We will come out to the car to get your cat(s). We may be asking you some questions. Doc will see them and then speak to you over the phone. *If you do not have a cell phone please let us know before your appointment.
  4. We will then bring your cat back out to you, take care of payment, etc.

All cats MUST be in a carrier- no exceptions. We don’t want to lose a patient outside.

Please try to be No More Than 5 minutes early for your appointment. We are trying to reduce the # of cars in the driveway. As well as have time in between for proper cleaning.

Arrivals that are more than 5 minutes late will probably have to be rescheduled. We have a pretty tight schedule at this point.  If you are running late for any reason the best policy is to call us.  Then we can let you know if you will have to reschedule or if we can tweak the schedule to accommodate.

We recommend writing down any concerns or questions you have prior to the appointment and sending them in with your pet.

We do ask that everyone wear a mask while speaking to us at the car. We are doing our best to stay healthy and stay open.


All refills and food orders must be called in ahead of time!! Please give 24 hours' notice. We will continue to fill requests as quickly as possible but with the busy schedule we have we cannot guarantee that you can pick up medications/food/etc. the same day. The best time to call is in the morning as afternoons are busy and we will not be able to fill requests. Saturday requests may not be available until Monday. Email requests, requests through our website link and PetPro are all other options.


We are continuing to modify and adapt our appointments so that we can give you and your pet that best service possible. Look for an invitation to PetPro - an app that lets you access your pet’s vaccine records, request appointments and refills.  We are also experimenting with video chats and telemedicine options. Look for those in the future. We are developing a form to send everyone prior to appointments- asking the most common questions Doc has for you. This will allow us to spend more time with your cat and less time with paperwork!


Above all be kind, be patient.  All of us, everywhere, are doing our best in this new normal we find ourselves in.  We stand together.
