Hospital Policies

Appointment Policy

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. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.

Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be nervous around new people, new surroundings, and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet.  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.

Payment Policy

We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Care Credit, cash and personal checks.

Privacy Policy

This is our own private website. We do not collect or give out any information to any third party vendors or internet businesses.  No information will ever be disclosed to outside parties from us or our web site hosting company.

Clark Animal Care Center recognizes the importance of protecting the personal privacy of its clients, its patients and those individuals who simply visit our site.
