Yes! This is for the safety of all our patients and their owners. Even if your pet is well-behaved off leash or outside of a carrier, the next patient who walks in the door may not be. We want to avoid unpleasant interactions whenever possible. Also, please keep in mind that even if your pet is well-behaved at home, coming to our office can be a stressful event so they may not act exactly as you expect.
If you use a retractable leash, we ask that you keep it no longer than two feet and in the locked position at all times.
