Welcome to Ridge Animal Clinic Your Veterinarian in LANSING IL

Beginning Monday June 1st, we will be going back to normal hours! We want to thank everyone for helping us navigate through this tricky endeavor and we appreciate your patience as we slowly get back to our normal routine.

Our hours will be going back to normal 8 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday, 

with 8 am to 1 pm on Saturday. 

We will be completely closed from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm Monday through Friday 

so the staff can have a lunch break.


Things to keep in mind when you come for your appointment:

1. We will slowly allow people back into the building to accompany their pets during their appointments. WE WILL ONLY ALLOW A SMALL AMOUNT OF PEOPLE INTO THE BUILDING AT A TIME.

2. If you would like to come into the building, a face mask is required. 

3. We will only be allowing 1 person per appointment. If you have 2 pets and will need help, please ask the receptionists for assistance. We will be more than happy to help you with your pets! 

4.. If you are arriving for your appointment with a doctor, please  call the front desk and they will direct you when to come into the building.

5. If you are arriving for a tech appointment, such as for a nail trim, call when you arrive. A receptionist will let you know when to come into the building, or a tech will come out to your car to get your pet for their appointment. We want to help you through your appointment as fast as possible, so we may come out to get your pet if we have too many people in the clinic at the time.

6. If you are picking up food or medication, you may come into the building. Please go to the check-in counter in the waiting room. PLEASE BE PATIENT AND WAIT TO COME INTO THE BUILDING IF THERE ARE 3 OR MORE PEOPLE IN THE WAITING ROOM. DO NOT GO THROUGH THE EXIT DOOR.

7. If you are waiting in the waiting room, please remember a social distance of at least 6 feet away from other people.

8. You are more than welcome to stay in your car and ask for curbside assistance. We want you to stay safe and healthy and we will be more than happy to keep your pet company while you stay in the comfort of your car.

We have precautions in place to help keep you and our staff safe and healthy! 

Everyone here at Ridge Animal Clinic would like to thank all of our clients 

who have gone above and beyond to help us through this tough time.

With the many changing directions we have faced these past few months, 

we appreciate everyone who has made this experience better!
