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.
We encourage our clients to arrive a bit early for their appointment to fill out our New Patient Form, if you have the time. If you want, you can also complete the New Patient Form online in advance.
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.
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.

Payment in full is expected at the time services are provided or upon discharge of your pet. We accept payment by cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
We are proud to offer CareCredit as a financing option. They offer an easy application process that will give you results in minutes.
We will provide a good-faith estimate of the cost of our services prior to treating your pet. However, unforeseen circumstances may arise that impact your final bill.
We will always discuss our written estimate with all clients before they leave our facility, and require a deposit based on our estimate prior to any further treatment.
If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer the space in our schedule to other clients.
We care for all small domestic pets, including dogs and cats, as well as exotic pets like birds, fish, exotic mammals, reptiles and amphibians.
You can purchase all the medications and specialty food your pet needs either via our online store or our in-house pharmacy.
We require a deposit payment for all emergency vet exams. Once our staff have assessed your companion, we will provide you with an estimate for their treatment and a treatment plan will be determined.
If further hospitalization, diagnostics or surgery are required, a deposit is required upfront, with payment in full due when your pet is discharged.
We’re happy to help you fill out pet insurance forms for your pet’s visit.
