May be an image of text that says 'BEST OF coastal STYLE 2011 VETERINARY SERVICE'Beginning Monday, July 12th  we will begin allowing 2 clients with each pet to enter the building without calling first. Please still be aware of keeping distance within the front lobby so that everyone feels comfortable. We are still requiring MASKS must be worn and PROPERLY (over your nose AND mouth) at all times until further notice. We will still be keeping distance within the exam room. We will still be asking if you have been exposed to Covid within the last 14 days, are having signs of Covid, or awaiting test results for Covid. If you answer yes to any of those questions then you will not be allowed in the hospital and we will continue curbside for you and your pet. If you are more comfortable with curbside service we can certainly accommodate that as well. Please still call with refill requests and allow 24 hour turnaround for refills. We may still leave those in the medication mailbox for you or you can come in to pick them up.  You may note that we seem a little slower than other businesses to lighten up on restrictions but we do have immune compromised people on staff and are being very cautious and want to take it slow to make sure there is not an increase in cases of COVID. Thank you for your understanding in these unprecedented times!

Weekday lunchtime emergencies:  If you are an established client and have a true emergency with your pet you may reach us at our lunch break at 410-422-4229.


We would like you to be aware of a policy change. We have had quite a few no-shows for appointments in spite of us calling the day before to confirm appointments.  So we are having to institute a new policy due to the fact that we have many clients that would like to have their pets be seen and we are even staying through many lunches to make that happen. We understand that things can happen and appointments can be missed once but reoccurrence of this is unfortunate for us and for other patients. Therefore if you have an appointment and do not show and do not call prior to your appointment then you will be charged an exam fee. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

For exotic pet emergencies please call Windcrest  Animal Hospital in Wilmington, DE  at  (302) 998-2995or Stahl Exotic Animal Veterinary Services in Fairfax, VA at (703) 281-3750 or Chadwell Animal Hospital in Abingdon, MD at (443) 512-8338.

We have three exam rooms, in house laboratory, ultrasound, surgery, dentistry and digital x-ray. We now also offer Companion Laser Therapy and acupuncture.

The office is situated on a large piece of property so there is plenty of room for walking your pets.

  • "Where do I begin? I HAD been going to the same vet for years because he was convenient. Erin is AMAZING! She shows genuine love and compassion for our babies as well as for us as the parents! My dog is always nervous at the vet and wouldn't let her "old" vet touch her much... She warmed right up to Erin and her staff. So happy we found her!"
