It's been some time since we updated our Covid protocol. Here are the latest requirements:

                                   1. As we are only allowing a few clients/pets in at a

                                       time, everyone is still required to call or text in upon

                                       arrival. If you do not have a cell phone, please knock on the

                                       door and someone will assist you as soon as possible.

                                   2. We will call or text you when we are ready for you to

                                       come in for your appointment, to pick meds, etc.

                                   3. Masks are required for anyone who has not been vaccinated against Covid.

                                   4. All medication refills require at least a 24 - 48 hour

                                       request. Many prescriptions must be approved by

                                       the Dr's. and getting them ready the same day is not always possible.

Lastly, we thank all of your for patience and understanding during these trying times! We are working hard to continue to serve you with the care you have come to expect from the Dr's and staff.

What do our clients think?...

"We have been clients of Home Veterinary Care since we moved here in 2008. Dr. Hottel is a very kind and caring vet. We feel very fortunate to have her taking care of our Karlie!! Many thanks to the whole staff, you are the best!! Every neighbor, friend, or stranger I have ever sent to you is as pleased as I am. They have all become Home Vet clients for life. Karlie loves all of you. She loves to come to the office!!" - Steve W.

"Our labs have been under the care of Dr. Varga and now Dr. Hottel since they were pups. They are now 12 & 11. The staff treats everyone with the utmost level of professionalism, compassion and care. We recently had to put our 10 year-old lab down and as difficult as it was, they were wonderful with us. They treat us like part of their family and it is without reservation that I highly recommend Home Veterinary Care." - Suzanne W.

"The entire staff is wonderful, professional, and very knowledgeable!!! They always get us in when there is an emergency and always treat my furbabies great. All of my animals love them. When my pets have passed they have always been very supportive and caring, making a difficult time much more bearable." - Dani S.
