What to Expect at Your Appointment
Knowing what you can expect at your first appointment will help make the process smoother for both you and your cat or dog.
Please arrive about 10 minutes early to complete our New Patient Form.
Meet Your Veterinarian
A member of our veterinary team will review your pet's history and discuss their condition. Feel free to ask any questions you may have, and we'll take the time to answer them.
Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
After your pet has been assessed, we will give you a diagnosis and treatment options. Your veterinarian will work with you to determine a treatment plan for your cat or dog. Once your visit is over, we will contact your primary care veterinarian and provide them with a detailed written report regarding your appointment and treatment plan.
