Grantline Veterinary Hospital has been honored to serve our community, providing compassionate care for your pets. It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that our practice must temporarily close, effective December 22nd. The nationwide labor shortage has hit the veterinary industry hard, and we are unable to keep our hospital open without a doctor on site.

While we are actively recruiting for a new veterinarian, we cannot provide medical treatment or authorize prescription refills without a provider onsite. However, our phone lines will remain open to help you. If you need medical care in our absence, we can assist in referring you to another hospital and transferring your pet’s medical records there.

While we cannot provide a timeline for reopening at this time, we want to thank you for the trust you have placed in Grantline Veterinary Hospital over the years, and we hope to see you again soon!

4 Tips to Finding a Lost Pet


If your furry friend is afraid of fireworks, learn how to find them if they run off in a panic during the 4th of July. Here are four steps to follow for the most effective ways to find a lost pet.


Step 1: Share your pet’s picture on social media 

Who isn’t on social media nowadays? Even at work, you likely have a large portion of your network scrolling through Facebook and Instagram. Post the clearest, most recent photo you have of your pet, along with a description and the location where they were last seen, on all of your social media pages. Also, share the post in local groups, such as lost pets, buy and sell groups, and neighborhood chat pages. Encourage your network to share your post to increase the chances of it being seen by someone who has seen your pet.

Step 2: Contact local animal shelters and veterinary hospitals

If someone picks up a pet on the run, they likely will take them to an animal shelter or veterinary hospital to have them scanned for a microchip and to be held for an owner to reclaim. Contact every shelter and clinic near your home to see if your pet has turned up, and email a picture and description to each facility.


Step 3: Enlist family and friends to comb your neighborhood

Nothing beats a dedicated search party to comb the neighborhood. Go armed with your pet’s favorite treats and toys—think smelly snacks and squeaky toys—and knock on every door, calling your pet’s name as you go. Listen for yelps, whimpers, and cries, as your pet may be hurt or stuck somewhere.


Step 4: Contact your pet’s microchip registration company

Your pet’s microchip registration company may have a service that issues a lost pet poster to the area’s veterinary hospitals and animal shelters. Contacting the company also will put out the alert that your pet is missing, and their employees likely will assist you with any available resources they have.


In honor of National Lost Pet Prevention Month, schedule an appointment with our team to have your pet microchipped to help ensure a happy reunion.
