At the end of the form, you will be asked to select a 30-minute time frame to arrive in. While we will try our hardest to maintain a quick schedule, there could be a waiting period after arrival depending on how busy our clinic is. Pets will be seen on a first-come/first-serve basis within each time frame.
  • This clinic will be a curbside service. An ARLGP team member will check-in with you upon arrival. When your pet is ready to be seen, a veterinary technician will retrieve your pet from your car, bring them into our clinic for their services, and return them to you. Due to COVID-19, pet parents will not be able to accompany their pets into our facility.
  • Be sure to come with a leash for your dog and/or a carrier for your cat. If you have concerns about your animal, please let us know so we can best prepare. If your dog requires a muzzle to visit the vet, please bring it to your vaccine appointment too.
