A Note to Our Community Regarding NEW PATIENTS (6/23/2020):

Due to the special processes implemented in response to the coronavirus, Seven Locks Animal Hospital has limited capacity for new patient appointments.  It is our priority to ensure continued high-quality care for our patients while protecting the safety of our clients and staff.  If you are new to our practice, please complete the New Client form here:

(Existing patient appointments should be scheduled by phone.)

After we receive your New Client form, we will call you within one week to let you know if we are currently able to accommodate your pet.  We know how special your pets are and wish we could meet all of them.  

You may have urgent questions about your pet’s health. Here are some suggestions:

1. We have been receiving an unusual volume of new appointment requests transferring from other animal hospitals. During the current public health situation, we recommend continuing care with your regular veterinarian if possible.

2. Check current availability at other local veterinary hospitals.  

3. If you are having a pet emergency, please contact one of the emergency hospitals.

We hope you and your pets stay happy and healthy during these unprecedented times.
