WHAT TO EXPECT AT A FIRST VISIT:

Pets are family & we want them to live the longest & healthiest lives possible with your family. It is crucial that your pets be taken to see a licensed veterinarian annually for a wellness visit. With Bay Animal Hospital, this visit includes a full physical exam from nose to tail, & in most cases a preventative screening blood panel. As long as your pet is deemed healthy enough by the doctor, preventative vaccinations will be recommended and if approved by you, administered. 

All recommendations made during an appointment by our doctors or staff will be thoroughly discussed with you.

Have an appointment already scheduled with us? We are so excited to meet you! Please go to our "Online Forms" tab next, & complete a new client & patient history form to submit prior to your appointment. 

Be sure to bring any medical history/paperwork you may have for your pets. If you have no proof of previous medical care, simply let our staff know at check-in. This way, doctor can generate a plan to make sure we do our best to keep your pet healthy & protected from preventable parasites or diseases. 

Our veterinarianas find it valuable to keep a journal of your pets' health throughout their life; this would include specific notes of behavioral shifts, diet changes, an isolated seizure, etc. This information has proven beneficial during their visits with us, especially as we are getting to know them so we highly encourage you to bring this along if applicable. 

In an occasional circumstance following an exam with us, doctor may recommend your pet have additional specialized diagnoses, treatments, or procedures in which we cannot conduct here in our facility. In which case, our staff would provide you with information in seeking a specialist hospital with advanced expertise for what your pet may need.

Bay Animal Hospital is a place where care & compassion always come first when interacting with your pets & in servicing you, as a valued client. We do our best to ensure your pets are calm & comfortable during their visits with us. Our doctors & staff take our time & are truly passionate about veterinary medicine. Your beloved family members are in the best hands with us.
