What to Expect at a Veterinary Appointment
Knowing what you can expect from your first appointment with us will help to make the process more pleasant for both you and your pet.
We ask that clients bringing their pets in for the first time arrive at least 10 minutes early to fill out our New Patient Form. To save a bit of time, you can complete the New Patient Form online in advance.
Meet Your Veterinarian
One of the members of our team will review your pet's health history and speak with you about any concerns you have. You can also take this opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
Once your pet has been assessed by our vets, we will provide you with a diagnosis of any detected health issues as well as your treatment options. Our vets will work with you in order to customize a treatment plan for you.
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.
