Celebrating the Human–Animal Bond
Cordova Veterinary Hospital Mission Statement
The doctors and staff of Cordova Veterinary Hospital feel that every animal brought to us, regardless of breeding, is owned by a compassionate, concerned individual who desires the ultimate care and treatment for their pets.
In celebration of the human–animal bond, we dedicate our services and facilities. We will constantly strive through preventive medicine, continuing education, and advancement in instrumentation to provide quality care in a comfortable, loving environment, and give each patient the same consideration we would expect for members of our own family.
- Appointments—To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable.
- Patient arrival policy—For your protection, and that of others, all dogs must be on a leash and properly controlled while in the waiting area or exam rooms. All cats must be presented in an appropriate cat carrier or on a leash.
For your convenience, “drop-off” appointments are available. A drop off means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him or her with us for a couple of hours. Usually, we will ask you to drop off sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, we will call you to go over the diagnosis and give you discharge instructions.
For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings, and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet. We recommend that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room.
We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept
