Dr. Robert Dougherty DVM 

covid-19 update

Hello Ace Family!

Hope everyone had a happy & safe Easter. We will be back and once again seeing our patients starting Monday, April 20th.
Our schedule will be as follows:

Monday: 8:30-4:00 patient appointments

Tuesday, Thursday & Friday: AM surgeries &
2:00-5:00 patient appointments

Saturday: 8:30-2:00 patient appointments

We will be closed on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Sick calls will be our priority. Wellness check ups may have to wait for a while. Call ahead if you're not sure.

The visit protocol will be as follows:


Call ahead for availability and appointment. When you get here, call us and we will check you in by phone. When we are ready for you, you will bring your pet to the back gate, and we will take it from there. We will communicate with you by phone. We will take payment over the phone, and either a tech or Dr. Dougherty will consult with you about the visit, go over any medications needed, and then you can pick your pet up at the back gate. Please call ahead for food and medication orders, and pay for them over the phone to make transactions easier. We know there may be some problems that we have not anticipated, so please be patient as we figure things out. Our goal is to remain safe ourselves, help you to remain safe, while helping to meet your pet's needs. Sincerely, Dr. Dougherty, Maureen and the staff at Ace.
