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. We require all forms to be submitted at least 24 hours in advance unless scheduled the same day.
  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 samples if requested.
  4. It is required that your pet be on a leash or secured carrier. 
  5. Feel free to bring your pet's favorite treats to keep them happy and distracted!

Arrive early

Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your pet's appointment to ensure that we can get you checked in on time and seen promptly.
