Missed/ Late Appointment Policy

At Cambrian Animal Hospital, our goal is to provide medical care in a timely manner to every patient. When no-shows, late arrivals or cancellations occur, it affects other patients who need access to veterinary care.

To respect the medical needs of all of our patients, we ask that you provide us with 24-hour notice of your need to cancel or reschedule an appointment.

To cancel your appointment, please call us at 403-457-3911. If you do not reach the receptionist, you may leave a detailed message on our voicemail. If you would like to reschedule your appointment, please leave your name, and phone number, and we will return your call as soon as possible. Cancelling or rescheduling as soon as you know allows us to offer that appointment time to another patient.

After three no-shows or late cancellations, you will be asked to pre-pay for the consultation when scheduling your pet’s appointments for one year. This deposit fee is placed on your account and applied toward your invoice on the day of your appointment. If you do not show up and/or fail to provide proper notice after this time, the deposit will be forfeited.

If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, your appointment may need to be rescheduled as doctors and the support team are scheduled accordingly. So as not to delay the next appointment, rescheduling may be necessary.

​If you have any questions regarding our policy, please don’t hesitate to call us at 403-457-3911.

Thank you kindly for your understanding and co-operation.

Your dedicated team at Cambrian Animal Hospital
