What is a “Valet Pet Care”?

  • Please call us at 413-786-4440 as you are arriving, and wait in your car for instructions from a team member.
  • Shortly an AAH team member will instruct you to meet us at the front doors with your pet.
  • The team member will collect your pet, dogs should be on a leash and cats will remain in their carriers during the transfer.
  • You may then choose to wait in your vehicle while the doctor is examining your pet OR wait outside if the weather is nice. Please do not leave the parking lot or there will be a housing fee.
  • All communications and transactions will be done over the phone. Our doctor or technician will be speaking with you while your pet is in our care.
  • Once the examination and treatments are complete, you may pay over the phone by credit/debit card. If you are paying by cash, a team member will take the payment at your car.

What is a “Valet Product Pickup”? 

  • Request your pet’s prescription, food and other product as normal.
  • Once your request is ready, you may pay over the phone by credit/debit card. If you are paying by cash, a team member will take the payment at your car.
  • When you arrive at our parking lot please pull near the front door, and call 413-786-4440 to alert our team that you have arrived. If payment has not been collected, we will take it over the phone at that time. 
  • If we have the time, a staff member will deliver your product to your car,  if all staff members are busy, you may be asked to pick up your product in the entry way.

    “I had a family science background growing up and a strong attraction to the animal world. Veterinary medicine fulfilled the perfect complementary union for me. I love the diversity of patients and the fact that every day is different. I look at every patient in the context of its unique human-companion animal bond. Clients say I have a calming effect on the patients. I think they sense that I want to help them be free of discomfort and enjoy a longer, higher-quality life.”
