OUR LONG BEACH VETERINARY CLINIC IS FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED

WE HAND OUT NUMBERS AT NOON TUESDAY-FRIDAY

AND AT 8:00 AM ON SATURDAY

IF MORNING SURGERY ENDS EARLY OR IN EXTREME WEATHER, 

WE WILL HAND OUT NUMBERS EARLY AND MAY OPEN OUR CLINIC EARLY

(WE CANNOT PREDICT WHEN OR IF THIS WILL HAPPEN)

CLIENTS BEGIN LINING UP BEFORE WE OPEN (SOMETIMES AS EARLY AS 6:00 AM),

SO WE SUGGEST ARRIVING EARLY

IF MORNING SURGERY RUNS LATE, OUR CLINIC HOURS WILL BE DELAYED 

WE ARE NOT ABLE TO DETERMINE THIS IN ADVANCE

WE CAN ACCOMMODATE 5-25 CLIENTS PER DAY,

DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF VETERINARIANS ON DUTY

EUTHANASIA PATIENTS ARE GIVEN PRIORITY SERVICE

AND MAY ALTER THE NUMBER OF GUARANTEED CLIENTS WE ARE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE

 

WHILE WE DO OUR BEST TO SCHEDULE 2 VETERINARIANS PER DAY,

OCCASIONALLY THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE

ONCE WE HIT OUR QUOTA FOR THE DAY, WE WILL STOP ACCEPTING CLIENTS -

SOMETIMES WE HIT OUR QUOTA EARLY IN THE DAY, SOMETIMES LATER

WAIT TIMES CAN BE 1-3 HOURS - OCCASIONALLY LONGER

SATURDAYS ARE OUR BUSIEST DAYS

SUMMER IS OUR BUSIEST SEASON

OUR CLINICS ARE HIGH-VOLUME AND OUR STAFF

IS TRAINED TO WORK AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE

WHILE PROVIDING THE BEST CARE

WE APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE!
