  • Background

    At your first appointment, we will talk with you about your pet’s background, health, diet, and training. We can also address any questions or concerns you might have and provide pet-proofing tips, training assistance and parasite protection recommendations tailored to your pet.

  • Evaluation

    Your veterinarian will examine your furry friend from nose to tail, looking for things like heart murmurs, ear infections, and parasites. We'll present you with a price estimate prior to starting any testing or treatment.

  • Next Steps

    If there are any concerns that need to be addressed immediately, we’ll discuss treatment options tailored to your pet’s specific needs, with full price transparency. Once you're comfortable with a treatment plan, our expert team will provide your pet with the highest standard of medical care.

What to bring with you

So that we can gain a full picture of your pet’s history, please bring the following to your first visit:

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

Our team may ask that you collect any necessary stool or urine samples. Please bring these if so.

A few helpful tips for your pet's first visit

If you're bringing in your dog, it may make them more comfortable to be on a short leash, with a new place and other animals around. 

If you're bringing a cat, a carrier may help them feel more secure.

Feel free to bring your pet's favorite treats to keep them happy and distracted!
