We're pleased to offer the following services at Blackstone Animal Clinic:
Our appointment book is computerized, which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
During regular business hours, emergencies will, of course, be seen on a priority basis.
Due to staffing constraints, Dr. Carr is unavailable to see after hours emergencies. After hours emergencies are referred to the Animal Medical Center @ 804-639-3900 or Veterinary Referral & Critical Care @ 804-784-8722.
Blackstone Animal Clinic offers cat and dog boarding. Our feline guests enjoy the comfort of luxury condos in a “cats only” setting. Our canine friends can enjoy a variety of suites to fit all shapes and sizes. We provide food, bowls, beds and bedding, leashes, litter pans and litter to our pet guests. You may want to bring your pet’s own food if they are a finicky eater or are on a specially prescribed diet.
Individual play times may be scheduled, too. Ask for details about our Play Pal Program.
All dogs must be current on Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, Bordetella & K9 Influenza vaccinations. Cats must be current on Rabies and Feline Distemper. In some cases, these vaccinations may be updated during your pet’s stay.
Drop off and pick up hours are between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday thru Friday and 9:00 am and 11:30 on Saturday.
Minor grooming, such as bathing and nail trimming, are offered daily. These appointments can usually be scheduled within the same week of calling.
Sedation grooming is offered to those pets that must be completely sedated for grooming. Please call for further information.
Appointments & General Medicine:
Appointments are available Monday through Friday and some Saturdays. Along with routine exams and vaccinations, we also offer in house lab work and digital radiographs.
Appointments are preferred for everyone’s convenience, but we are happy to accommodate walk ins as time allows.
Surgeries are performed Monday through Thursday. Surgery patients will be scheduled an admission appointment the day of surgery. Admissions start at 8:00am and continue until 9:00am and take about 15 minutes.
Consent and surgical release forms will need to be filled out during this appointment. If someone other than the owner will be bringing the pet in for surgery, we request that the owner come by the office prior to the appointment to complete the required paperwork. We can also fax, email or mail the forms if that is more convenient.
