What to Expect at a Veterinary Appointment
Understanding what to expect at your first veterinary appointment with us will help make the process easier and more comfortable for you and your pet.
We encourage you to arrive 10 minutes early for your appointment 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
A team member of ours will review your pet's medical history and discuss any issues they may be experiencing with you. You can ask any questions you want, and we'll dedicate time to answering them.
Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
After your pet has been seen by our vets, we will provide you with a diagnosis and treatment options. Your vet will work closely with you to create a treatment plan that works for you and your pet.
After your visit, create a detailed written report about your appointment and treatment plan for our records and reference in the future.
