What to Expect at a Veterinary Appointment

Knowing what you should expect from the process of your first veterinary appointment with us will make the process easier and more comfortable for both you and your pet. 

Get Settled

We encourage our clients to arrive a bit early for their appointment to fill out our New Patient Form.

Meet Your Veterinarian

A member of our veterinary team will take time to speak with you about your pet's medical history and discuss any issues you may have noticed. This is also a chance to ask any questions you may have. We will be sure to take time to answer them.

Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment

After your pet has been examined, we will provide you with a diagnosis and your options for treatment. Your veterinarian will work with you in order to determine a treatment plan for you and 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.
