Simplifying Care.

Page Point Animal Hospital is now offering TeleHealth consultations! This means that you can now connect with Dr. Simpson and the Patient Advocates you know and trust, from the comfort of your home through your smartphone!

Due to this great addition, we have adjusted our hours to accommodate. On Wednesdays, we will be open and conducting TeleHealth calls from 7:30 am to 12 pm and will be closing at 2 pm (TeleHealth calls will also be available throughout the week – call for details). We will still remain open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 7:30 am-6 pm and Saturday from 9am-1pm.

What does this mean for you? We know that taking a pet to the clinic is not possible each time something comes up, especially given the current Covid-19 situation, so we wanted to offer a system that will provide more flexibility in the way that we deliver care. Our hospital is open and we’d love to continue to see you and your pet in person. Please remember to always call in case of emergency.
