Effective July 1, 1991, the Commonwealth of Virginia passed a law that requires all non-24 hour animal care facilities to disclose the hours that medical staff is not on duty. The law applies to any situation where there is a possibility that your pet may stay in the hospital overnight for any period of time. The law also REQUIRES that we maintain a sign where indicated.
NO medical staff is on duty from 7:00pm Monday to 7:00am Tuesday, 7:00pm Tuesday to 7:00am Wednesday, 7:00pm Wednesday to 7:00am Thursday, 7:00pm Thursday to 7:00 am Friday, 6:00pm Friday to 8:00am Saturday, and 1:00 pm Saturday to 9:00 am Monday. NO medical staff is on duty on Holidays. I understand there is an emergency clinic open during those hours when the Hospital is closed and that, if needed, I will make the necessary arrangements to have my pet transferred.
