A pet's first visit to the vet can seem a bit daunting, so we've put together a list of info and resources to help you prepare.

At your first appointment, we will gather information about your pet’s background, health, diet, and training. We can also address any questions or concerns you might have.

Your veterinarian will examine your pet from nose-to-tail, looking for things like heart murmurs, ear infections, and/or parasites. Your vet can also provide pet-proofing tips, training assistance, and parasite protection recommendations.

Before Your First Appointment
  1. Complete all Patient Forms prior to your first visit.
  2. Assemble and be sure to bring all the proper items with you:
    • Your pet's adoption or purchase records
    • Any existing medical history
    • A list of current medications and supplements
    • Current feeding schedule and the brand of food you use
    • A list of questions you have for your veterinarian
  3. Collect any necessary stool or urine samples if requested.
  4. If you're bringing in your dog, be sure he or she is accustomed to being on a short non-retractable leash. For your dogs safety, please allow our tech staff to attach a secondary leash.
  5. Cats must be in an appropriate carrier. If you do not have a carrier, please let the front desk know when you arrive. We will bring one out for you to use while your pet is here.
  6. Feel free to bring your pet's favorite treats to keep them happy and distracted!

Arrive early to fill out paperwork

Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your pet's appointment. If you have not filled out our patient forms yet, plan to arrive 10 minutes ahead of your appointment.

“I've been taking both my cats there in the last 5 years. Since they were kittens. I do feel very comfortable leaving them to care for my precious babies.”
