Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
A quick judge can be done if you look at your pet from above. You want to be able to see a waistline (hourglass shape). You also want to be able to feel your pet’s ribs, without them protruding. If you want to have your pet’s weight checked, just give Park Road Veterinary Clinic a call and we would be happy to set up an appointment for you.
Are some breeds prone to obesity?
Yes, some breeds are considered “prone,” but any pet regardless of breed can become overweight if they are not properly monitored. Remember, just five extra pounds on a Beagle is 21 extra pounds on an adult human!
Why should you have weight loss & management consultation in-clinic?
While it is easier to weigh some pets at home than others, every scale is different. Also, having your pet come to the clinic for regular weigh-ins allows our veterinary team to track your pet’s progress and offer suggestions and helpful tips when needed.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 15, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 519-759-3031. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
