*** New *** After Hour Emergency Policy as of August 20, 2017

We at the Dunkirk Animal Clinic strive to provide the best quality medicine for your pet. This includes not only services provided during our open hours, but after hours services as well.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Doctors have decided that it is in our and our patient’s best interest to no longer provide after hours emergency services and phone consultations.

We do not have after hours staffing available and we feel that your pets will be best served in an emergency situation at the Orchard Park Veterinary Medical 24 hour care center. They are available after hours 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your pet. They can be reached at 716-662-6660. Check out their website www.opvmc.com.

For those that live in the southern part of Chautauqua county, Erie has an after hours emergency facility, Northwest Pennsylvania Pet Emergency Center. Their number is 814-866-5920. Check out their website www.eriepetemergency.com

As always we open at 8 am M-S and are still available to see emergencies during regular business hours.

 


New Appointment Policies as of November 1, 2016

*** Notice ***
Our goal at the Dunkirk Animal Clinic is to provide the highest quality medical care for your pet. In order to do so we have implemented a tight appointment schedule to get all our patients seen in a timely manner. Our increasingly busy schedule has forced us to effectuate a new appointment policy (Cancellations, Late Arrivals and “No-Shows”) which can be viewed on our website page “Appointments and Policies” under the “Services” menu item. Please note that our “no-show” policy now includes a $20 “no-show” fee unless you call and give notice by the morning of your appointment.

It’s Pesky Pest Time!

As springtime arrives so do some pesky parasites that we want to keep away from our beloved pets. Fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, among others can pose serious problems – from a minor annoyance to a major health issue – to both our dogs and cats, and yes even to us.

We carry a wide range of products to protect your pets from seasonal and non-seasonal parasites. We offer topicals, ingestibles and wearables, each have an advantage to suit your needs.

Do you like your tried and true topical that you use every year? We have Advantage-Multi and Activyl that you apply topically once a month.

Don’t prefer a topical or can’t remember to apply it every month? We have Bravecto chews for fleas and ticks that last up to 12 weeks (for dogs only).

Don’t want to have to remember to treat a pet more than once? We carry Seresto collars that can last up to 8 months for both dogs and cats.

Unsure of which to use? Call us and we can help you choose what’s right for you and your pet’s lifestyle.

 

For heartworm protection we have Sentinel (chews for dogs) and Advantage-Multi (cats). Remember, before you can pick up heartworm preventative for this season, your dog will need to be tested first. If your dog has been on a heartworm prevented all year round, then we require a heartworm test every other year.
