What to Expect at a Veterinary Appointment
Knowing what to expect at your initial appointment will help to put your mind at ease and ensure that you have a pleasant experience.
We ask that you arrive approximately 10 minutes prior to your appointment to fill out our New Patient Form or you can complete the New Patient Form online in advance.
Meet Your Veterinarian
One of our caring vets will meet with you and discuss your pet's medical history. You can express any concerns you may have and ask any questions at this time.
Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
Your vet will then thoroughly examine your pet and provide a diagnosis as well as any treatment recommendations that they may have.
After your visit is finished, your vet will create a detailed report of our diagnosis, make notes of your conversation, and your pet's treatment plan. We will use this information to better serve you at future visits.
