Well, it’s that time of year again where we have to deal with frozen white stuff falling from the sky. At Palmer Animal Hospital, we take the safety of our staff, clients, and patients very seriously. While we are usually able to stay open during most weather, there are times when snow, ice, or other conditions delay or prevent safe travel. If there is any question as to the conditions of the roads, we recommend that you wait until you are able to contact an actual LIVE staff member before coming to our office.
In regards to the storm we are expecting this weekend, it appears the snow will start sometime on Friday, January 22nd and be the most severe on Saturday morning, Jan 23rd. Our ability to remain open will depend on the severity and depth of the snowstorm. We hope to be able to stay open all day Friday, but our Saturday schedule right now is questionable at best. As stated above, please call our office if there is any question as to whether we are open, and please leave a message so the staff can return your call if necessary.
Stay safe and warm, and enjoy our first snowfall of the season!
ADDENDUM: The weather forecast is now calling for a Blizzard Watch starting 6PM Friday, Jan 22nd and lasting through 6AM, Sunday, Jan 24th. We expect our office will be CLOSED on Saturday, January 23rd due to this severe weather (including predicted White-Out conditions). We will be open Friday, January 22nd as long as the weather permits (which we expect to be 4-5PM). If you need something from our office, please contact us early Friday so we can accommodate you.
