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 leash. If you're bringing a cat, be sure to have an appropriate carrier.
  5. 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.

“Every aspect of this place is amazing! The Vet is very honest and informative she and the vet techs answered all my questions and some. I didn't feel like I was getting overcharged as I often feel other places with no explanation. This will be our vet from here on out. Wait time was very fast. Everyone seems to love their jobs here and all the animals. By far the best vet I've ever been.”
