We are excited to be in our brand new facility – equipped with state of the art equipment, and many features that contribute to making your pets trip to Sleeping Giant Animal Clinic a stress-free visit to the veterinarian. Some of these features include:
1. Dedicated Entrance & Exit
We have a dedicated entrance and dedicated exit, which helps to minimize face to face contact that dogs and cats have with each other when coming and going from appointments.
2. Minimal Wait Time
With 5 exam rooms, the wait time to enter an exam room before your appointment is minimal, helping to reduce the stress that may come with multiple pets in the waiting area.
3. Designated Play Area
Outside our facility, we have a designated play area for pets. We encourage you to bring your pet to hang out, get a treat, play, and have their weight taken. They will begin to associate our clinic as a fun experience, and their anxiety levels won’t be heightened when they come in for an actual exam. This helps our veterinarian to examine them much more effectively if they are not nervous and masking symptoms.
4. Separate Dog & Cat Rooms
Separate dog and cat rooms keep smells separate so there is no heightened fear, especially for feline visitors. One exam room, located in the back, quieter corner of the practice, will be dedicated to felines.
5. Recovery/ICU Areas
Separate recovery and ICU space keeps a calm environment for pets who need intensive care or plenty of rest for healing.
6. Oversized Hospitalization Space
We have 12 full size dog kennels for recovery – 3×5 and 4×5 – so dogs have plenty of their own space when staying at our clinic. Cat rooms are separate so that interaction with dogs sounds and smells is kept at a minimum. This allows them to relax and continue recovering.
7. One Exam Room with Dedicated Entrance
For very nervous, sick, or old pets, one exam room has it’s own separate entrance and exit. This is also beneficial for pet owners who may be euthanizing their pets and do not want to walk through the waiting area.
8. Pheromones & Fish Tank
Our dedicated cat exam room has pheromones to keep cats calm and a fish tank to keep them entertained.
9. Ground-Level Scale
Our scale for weighing pets is level to the ground, so there is no fight to get pets to step up onto an unfamiliar space. They can simply walk onto the scale lIke they would walk across the floor.
10. Large, Low Windows
Throughout the whole building there are huge open windows that are low to the ground so that the animals can see out and see their surroundings – helping to prevent them feeling closed in or panicked.
We can’t wait to meet you and your pet, and know that you will find visiting the vet a positive and rewarding experience when you bring your pet to Sleeping Giant Animal Clinic!
