Understanding what you can expect at your first appointment will help make the process easier and more pleasant for both you and your pet.
Please come approximately 10 minutes early so you have time to complete our New Patient Form. To save a bit of time, you can complete the New Patient Form online in advance.
A member of our team will review your pet's history and explain their issues. You can ask any questions you may have, and we'll dedicate time to answering them.
Once your pet has been examined, we will provide you with a diagnosis and treatment options. Your veterinarian will work with you to determine a treatment plan for your pet.
Following your visit, we will create a thorough report of our diagnosis, the discussion we had with you, and your pet's treatment plan. We will keep this information on hand for your reference.
