Clinic Updates on the COVID-19 Virus

As of May 4th,2023 Veterinary Cancer & Surgery Specialists (VCSS) will adopt a masks optional policy. We will continue to allow clients into our facility on a limited basis.

We will continue to do curbside check-in. We ask that you remain in your vehicle upon arrival to VCSS and text or call to alert our staff of your arrival. Once your pet has been checked in by one of our nursing staff, patients and clients will be escorted into one of our exam rooms for consultation with the doctor. 

If you do not wish to come into the building, then we will accommodate this consultation either by phone or outside in person, weather permitting. If you elect to come inside and would like our team to wear masks in the exam room, please ask. We are happy to accommodate. 

We continue to encourage everyone who can to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and stay up to date.

Bathrooms will be open for client use, but we ask that you maintain social distancing if you come into the building.

Our waiting area will remain closed for the time being. We appreciate your understanding.

With gratitude,
All of us at VCSS
