We Will Be Calling You With Details!

Your veterinarian has recommended some lab work or other diagnostics.  Since different tests have different preparation requirements, we will be calling you tomorrow with some important information on how to prepare for your pet’s visit.  Be on the lookout for our call!  

Fasting Instructions

If your pet eats prior to providing a blood sample for it’s diagnostic tests, it can impact the accuracy of the test results. Fasting (withholding food) is not essential but it might save you a trip back to the Wayland Animal Clinic. We will let you know if your pet’s visit requires fasting. 

In the event your pet’s diagnostics require fasting prior to your visit, please refer to these guidelines:

  • FAST FOR 8 HOURS: In general, we recommend that you fast your pet for 8 hours. Water is okay. Some tests require different fasting instructions. You will be notified by a member of our staff with more specific directions if needed.
  • PETS ON MEDICATIONS: If your pet is on medications, please alert us during our call or call our front desk staff at 508-653-1096 for detailed instructions for your particular pet.

Curbside Service

As of July 12, 2021, Wayland Animal Clinic is transitioning away from our 100% curbside service approach and will begin seeing patients and clients inside the building for most visits and exams. Technician appointments, surgeries, and other drop-off procedures will mostly remain curbside for a time to allow for continued social distancing in our facility.  We appreciate your patience as we continue to navigate this pandemic.

We ask that our clients:

  • Call Upon Arrival (508) 653-1096
  • A member of our team will provide you with instructions on how/when to enter the building
  • All clients must continue to wear a mask


  • You are experiencing a cough, fever, or chills.
  • You have tested positive for COVID-19, or if you (or anyone you live with) has a COVID-19 test pending.
  • You have traveled anywhere by plane in the last 14 days.

We will continue to monitor expert guidance, community COVID numbers, and variant concerns, and will continue to adapt our operations as appropriate.

No Show / Cancellation Policy

All clients are required to give at least 24 hours advanced notice when cancelling any appointment. No Show / Late Cancellations will be charged $20 for technician appointments and $40 for veterinary appointments. See More Details
