Latest News

Dear Friends,

It is with sincere and deep regret that I announce the impending closure of Sandy Paws Veterinary Clinic. As some of you are aware, serious and insurmountable family and medical issues have forced me to make this extremely difficult decision. Our last day of business will be September 28th, 2016.

I extend my most heartfelt gratitude to each of you for entrusting your animals’ care with us at Sandy Paws. That said, I cannot write this letter without praising my dedicated staff, whose exceptional care, professionalism, and love have helped make Sandy Paws what it is.

Sandy Paws' appointments, record requests, medications, and preventatives will continue to be available to our clients through the 28th of September. Following the clinic's closure, all records will be transferred to Pet Pal Veterinary Clinic. While I certainly encourage you to utilize Pet Pal’s compassionate care, it is by no means required.

Thank you all for your understanding in this challenging time. I will sincerely treasure the connections I have made with you and your wonderful pets, whom I have cared for as if they were my own.

Kindest regards,
John Mead, DVM
