Our hours have changed: We will be closed on Saturdays until further notice.  All other hours remain unchanged. 

Planet Pet Animal Hospital is still open and caring for animals.  We want you and your pets to stay safe. 

As of March 20, 2019 we have implemented a COVID-19 precautionary protocol in an effort to protect our staff and our clients from exposure. This will allow us to provide quality care for your pets during this challenging time. 

This means we will not be allowing owners to accompany their pet during the appointment. A member of our staff will pick up your pet from your car, fill out a history questionnaire,  then escort the pet inside to see the doctor who will communicate with you via phone.  If you would like to help with the process, the questionnaire can be printed by CLICKING HERE(requires a PDF reader) Then simply bring it with you to the appointment.  PLEASE STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE.  

 If you would like to pick up food or medication for your pet(s) or need to drop off a sample, we require you to call ahead so that we can prepare your order.  We will then make arrangements to have your order ready as needed.  Payments will be collected via credit card over the phone at the end of each appointment or medication pickup.  

We ask that you be patient with us as we address each and every client’s concerns and needs for their pet. This is in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep our clinic open to care for your pet.





Please understand that our goal is to provide the same level of veterinary care that you have come to expect from us.  Hopefully we will be able to get back to normal soon.  Thank you for your patience.
