What to Expect Upon Your Arrival:
Clients are greeted by a welcoming, friendly
front desk staff. Their purpose is to ensure
that you and your pet have a comfortable and
safe visit. We know that vet visits can be
stressful for pets, as well as their owners, so
we do everything possible (including handing
out lots of pet treats) and offering comforting
words as soon as you walk in the door. If you
are a new client you will fill out a new client form.
If you are an existing client you will be asked
for an updated address and phone number.
While you are waiting we have a large, light
filled waiting room and offer an array of retail
products for sale.
Once you are escorted to an exam room you will be greeted by one of our qualified Veterinary
Technicians who will help you navigate through your appointment. They will ask the reason for
your visit, weigh your pet and sometimes take vital signs. They will then get a brief history. If
your pet requires blood work they may draw the sample. If you have any previous records
from another veterinarian you can give them to the technician so they may make copies for
the Doctor to review.
The Doctor will come in and perform a full physical exam on your pet. A technician will restrain
your pet at this time. The Doctor will then make recommendations regarding diagnosis,
treatment and further testing if necessary. You will be provided an estimate for any extensive
services that are recommended. If your pet is to be admitted they will go over procedures and
protocols at that time.
