Scheduling an Appointment
All routine admissions and discharges are done during our normal office hours. We try our best to accommodate everyone's schedules and needs when it comes to appointments for your pet's medical care. You may find that you have to call a few days in advance if a particular doctor is requested, or if a particular day or time is needed (especially our 7pm nights or Saturdays).
Drop Off Appointments
Clients have the option of dropping-off your pets when a regular appointment won't work out for a variety of reasons- such as the schedule being full or for your convenience.
Drop-offs are normally brought in between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and will stay several hours. Patients are seen by the doctor who is doing surgeries and drop-offs that day, and are seen in order of severity between surgical cases. In most cases, they are ready for pick up by mid-afternoon.
Please be sure to fill out the paperwork and leave a phone number where we can reach you in case there are any questions regarding your pet, or if we need to get permission for testing, sedation, or treatment.
Please contact us by phone (985) 446-8824 or e-mail for appointments and all your pets' health care needs.
AAHA Accredited And What That Means
Ridgefield is proud to say that we have been AAHA accredited since 2018.
American Animal Hospital Association is the accrediting body for companion animal hospitals in the United States and Canada. To become AAHA accredited, companion animal hospitals undergo regular, comprehensive onsite evaluations by AAHA veterinary experts who evaluate each practice on more than 900 standards of veterinary care.
Not all animal hospitals are accredited. In fact, only about 12-15% of animal hospitals in the United States and Canada are accredited. What does accreditation mean? It means Ridgefield Animal Hospital holds itself to a higher standard and that your pet is receiving care at a hospital that has passed the highest standards in veterinary care.
Assessment of the major body systems; attitude and appearance, oral cavity and teeth, mucous membranes, eyes, ears, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, lymph nodes, urogenital, integumentary, and the nervous system.
When seconds count, keeping vital supplies stocked, clearly labeled and available is critical.
We take all precautions to prevent the spread of disease. We control the infection by frequent hand washing, antibacterial agents and disinfecting all areas of the hospital.
Our doctors and staff are trained in proper restraint techniques and treat every patient with compassion.
