What to Expect at a Veterinary Appointment
Knowing what to expect at your first appointment will help make the process more pleasant for both you and your furry friend.
1. Seamless Arrival
You can arrive with confidence, knowing that your information has been conveniently collected online at the time of your booking.
2. Meet the Veterinarian & Initial Assessment
The team will review your pet's history and discuss their issues. The veterinarian will conduct a physical exam, which will include checking your pet's coat, face and head, teeth and mouth, and general demeanor.
You will be able to ask questions during this time and she will take the time to answer them.
3. Diagnosis & Treatment
Once your pet has been assessed, we will provide you with a diagnosis and treatment options. Your veterinary team will work with you to determine a treatment plan for your pet.
After your visit, we will create a detailed medical record of your pet's visit and treatment plan.
