We are Open!
Click Here for an Important COVID-19 Update
So that we may continue to care for the 4-legged loved ones of our community, as an essential business, the Cardiff Animal Hospital & Wellness Center will remain open during the CA State Mandated Stay-At-Home order.
Should your pet require medical attention during this shutdown, we are here to help during our regular business hours. If possible, please call ahead to schedule an appointment, though we will continue to see emergencies on an as-needed basis.
When visiting our hospital with your pet, please be aware of the COVID-19 Protocol we have implemented. In an effort to limit person-to-person contact, and meet the recommendations provided by the CDC, the Cardiff Animal Hospital has rolled out our 5-star Concierge Service:
- Your arrival: When you arrive at the hospital, please remain in your car and call us at (760) 436-3215 upon your arrival.
° Appointments and Procedure Drop-Offs: A team member will obtain your pet’s visit history via telephone, or car-side upon your arrival. A team member will then escort your pet from your vehicle and into the hospital for his/her examination and/or treatment(s). The doctor will consult with you car-side or via the telephone as necessary. Once your pet’s visit is complete, a team member will bring him/her back to you, along with any instructions and/or medications. Payment will be completed car-side at the end of your pet’s visit.
° Medication/Product Pick-Up: If possible, please call ahead with any medication or product requests. Your items will be brought to your car by a team member, and payment may be made car-side.
- Securing your pet: To prevent pets from escaping when we get them from your car, please make sure all dog collars and/or harnesses fit properly, are snug, and are not at risk for slipping off of your pet. All cats (and small dogs, if possible) should be secured in a pet carrier.
Thank you for continuing to help us keep our team members and community safe.
