What to Expect at a Veterinary Appointment
Understanding what you can expect at an appointment will help make the process more pleasant for both you and your pet.
Please arrive about 10 minutes early to check in with our front desk and update any information that has changed since your last appointment.
Meet Your Veterinarian
One of our team members will review your pet's history and discuss their issues with you. You'll be able to ask any questions you want, and we'll dedicate time to answering them.
Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
Once a veterinarian has assessed your pet, they will work with you to determine a treatment plan for your pet. Following your visit, we will develop a detailed report of our diagnosis, the discussion we had with you, and your pet's treatment plan. This information will be kept for your reference.
