We are continuing to keep our doors open at this time, however we are limiting lobby traffic as much as possible. Please call our office at (317) 844-6868 from the parking lot when you arrive for your appointment.
We are giving our clients the following 4 appointment options to choose from:
1.) COMING INSIDE: We'll call you when an exam room becomes available and if you're
comfortable and you meet the criteria below, you're welcome to come inside and we'll escort
you & your pet directly into an exam room.
Please limit to 2 people.
We are requiring a mask that completely covers your nose & mouth be worn at all times while in our building.
We ask that you haven't been diagnosed or have signs of COVID-19, and that you have had no known contact with someone who has been diagnosed or has symptoms of COVID-19 within 24-hours of your visit.
2.) STAYING IN YOUR CAR: We'll call you when an exam room becomes available and a technician
will meet you at your car & bring your pet inside while you wait in your car.
Dr. Carter is happy to talk you through the examination over the phone while you remain in your car.
3.) DROP-OFF YOUR PET: After calling our office when you've arrived, a technician will come meet
you & bring your pet inside. You can then leave and Dr. Carter will call you once the examination
