Update from Animal Care Associates regarding COVID-19 (03-27-2020) 

Hours: We will not be taking phone calls on the weekends, however, we do have an answering service available. 

We will now close at 6:30 pm on Fridays. This change is also temporary.

Appointments: Animal Care Associates will no longer allow clients into the building, except for euthanasia appointments. We will run by appointments only. All clients are asked to stay in your car and call the office once you arrive. At that time, a member of our staff will come out to your car and take a history. Then that staff member will take your pet into the exam room and the doctor will perform the examination. Once completed, the doctor will call you to discuss exam findings and treatment plans. At the end of the visit, you will be asked to provide payment over the phone, unless you are paying by check or cash, in which a receptionist will come out to collect payment. 

Medications: We are still refilling medications here at Animals Care Associates. We will also continue to dispense heartworm and flea/tick prevention as well. We will conduct this in the same manner as the protocol stated above. Please call in advance, this way we have adequate time to fill the prescriptions or gather the preventatives that you would like to purchase. We will take card payments over the phone. If you need to pay using a check or cash, a staff member will come to your car to collect payment. Any clients that need a refill on medication but cannot come into the office are asked to go to our website at https://acawv.com/online-resou... and click the Vetsource icon to order medications from our partnered online pharmacy, which will ship directly to your home.

 Boarding: We have decided to temporarily end weekend hours to the public. We are still allowing clients to board pets, however, they will need to be dropped off before Saturday and cannot be picked up until Monday. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for understanding and for continuing to choose ACA for your pets needs.
