IF YOUR PET HAS AN APPOINTMENT WITH US, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:
In order to ensure the safety of staff and clients, we ask that anyone who is ill or has traveled outside of Canada in the 14 days prior to their pet's appointment make alternative arrangements for the pet's transportation to our clinic.
In order for your appointment to go as smoothly as possible, please ensure that your pet is enclosed within a safe carrier/cage and that you have a cell phone with you.
When you arrive at our clinic, please remain in your car and call us from the parking lot (403-240-3577). You will receive instructions from our client care staff on how to proceed. When directed to do so, please open the front door and place your contained pet in the front foyer. Do not wrap the carrier with any towels or blankets. One of our staff members will then retrieve your pet from this space.
Once retrieved, your pet will be taken into the clinic for their appointment. Please remain in your vehicle and in the parking lot during this time. Following your pet's examination, a Veterinarian will then call you to discuss your pet's case.
For the safety of your pet and the comfort of others, please bring your pet in a carrier or an appropriate sized cage. If your pet is being seen for a second opinion or on a referral basis, please have the referring clinic forward the files to our email address. New clients are asked to arrive 10 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment time to allow time for information input at our front desk.
IF YOU NEED TO PICK UP FOOD OR REFILL MEDICATIONS FOR YOUR PET:
Please call us before coming to the clinic to place your order and arrange payment for your item. Once you arrive at the clinic, call us at 403-240-3577 from the parking lot and one of our client care staff will bring your items to you.
Calgary Avian & Exotic Pet Clinic operates on an appointment basis and we are accepting new patients. We will always do our best to adhere to our appointment times but should an emergency arise, it will be given priority. We appreciate your understanding.
Calgary Avian & Exotic Pet Clinic is a proud member of the Distributed Veterinary Learning Community of the University of Calgary Veterinary Medicine. Throughout the year, we will have veterinary students from UCVM, as well as other Veterinary Colleges, on rotation with us. Working with our clients and their pets provides a valuable learning experience for these students, but we will always ask your consent for student observation and participation in every interaction.
We offer limited boarding to established clients whose pets are current on their annual health examinations and appropriate laboratory testing. If your pet is boarding with us, please note that space limitations may not permit us to keep your cage with your pet. Please consult with us regarding allowable cage sizes. We require that cages brought in for boarding are clean. Toys, perches, furniture, and any special foods or treats are welcome to make your pet's stay more comfortable.
