Delton is open and committed to the health of your pet.

Maintain physical distance and still transfer care of your beloved pet to us or pick up your pet’s food & medications within our secure and regularly disinfected entryway complete with complimentary alcohol based hand-sanitizer. To access it, simply call us when you arrive at Delton. We will guide you from there.

Forgot your phone? Wait til the entryway is free of pets / people and then walk-in.

We are taking regular appointments and our emergency walk-in service remains fully operational.

Self-isolating or just wanting to remain at home? Book a comprehensive video-conference appointment with one of our vets for your dog or cat. Hosted by google meet.

Wrap up your visit using our contactless payment system with a tap or an e-transfer. Contactless isn’t an option for you? We have wireless terminals and disinfect them each use.

There are still no reports of transmission of COVID from pets to people. We are monitoring the situation through our reliable sources and will keep you informed. For the most up-to-date & reliable info go to:

Dear Clients,

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, below are some important updates to our operating policies.

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!

2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
  • 3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE

    If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

    4. OPERATING HOURS

  • Monday to Saturday: 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
  • Sundays: CLOSED
  • Note: We are closed daily for lunch between 1:00 - 2:00 pm.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!

    - Your dedicated team at Delton Veterinary Hospital
