What to Expect at a Veterinary Appointment
Knowing what you should expect from your first veterinary appointment with us will help make the process far more pleasant both for you and your pet.
We encourage our clients to arrive about 20 minutes early to their appointments and ask that they bring a copy of their pets vaccination records. Prior to your appointment, please complete the New Patient Form online in advance.
Meet Your Veterinarian
One of the members of our veterinary team will be able to review your pet's medical history and discuss any issues they might have. This is also your opportunity to ask any questions you might have and we will be sure to take the time to answer them.
Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
Once your pet has been assessed, we will provide you with a diagnosis and options for treatment. Your veterinarian will work with you to determine a treatment plan for your pet.
After your visit, we will create a detailed report of our diagnosis, the discussion we had with you, and your pet's treatment plan. We will keep this information on hand for whenever you need it.
