An outside exercise area allows patients to stretch their legs and get some sun.

An Isolation Ward is used for separating patients with contagious diseases, such as Parvovirus, from other patients in the clinic. All staff entering this ward are required to wear protective clothing and disinfect prior to leaving, preventing spread of disease to other animals.  It is important to note that parvo is preventable through annual vaccination.  Is your pet up to date?
