WHAT TO EXPECT AT A FIRST VISIT:
It is crucial that pets be taken to see a licensed vet annually for a wellness visit. This includes a full physical exam from nose to tail & in most cases, a preventative screening blood panel. Oftentimes, as long as your pet is deemed healthy enough by the doctor, we will administer preventative vaccinations they may be due for. All recommendations by our doctors or staff will be thoroughly discussed at each appointment with you.
If you have an appointment already scheduled, please go to our "Online Forms" tab next, & complete a new client & patient history form to submit to us prior to your appointment. Be sure to bring any medical history/paperwork you may have of your pet. If you have no proof of previous medical care, simply let our staff know at check-in, so doctor can generate a plan to make sure we keep your pet healthy & protected. We believe it is best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his/her life, including specific notes such as behavioral shifts, etc which can be very helpful during their visits with us. If you have record of something like this, please share it with our team upon check-in.
In an occasional circumstance where your pet may need additional diagnoses, treatments, or procedures after examination, in which we cannot conduct here in our facility, a doctor may refer you to a recommended specialist with advanced expertise for what your pet may need.
