Knowing what to expect at your first appointment will make it easier for both you and your pet to enjoy the experience.
Please arrive approximately 10 minutes early to fill out our New Patient Form. To save a bit of time, you can complete the New Patient Form online in advance.
A member of our staff will go over your pet's history and problems with you. You are welcome to ask any questions, and we will devote time to answering them.
We will give you a diagnosis and treatment options after we have assessed your pet. Your veterinarian and you will collaborate to come up with a treatment plan for your pet.
We'll write a detailed report of our diagnosis, our conversation with you, and your pet's treatment plan after your visit.
We'll keep this information on hand in case you need it in the future.
