To Prepare for Your Pet's Appointment...

When you schedule your pet's appointment with us, there is some information that you can gather to help us meet your pet's needs.  We ask a lot of questions during routine physical exam, and thinking about them ahead of time can help you feel better prepared for your pet's visit.

Depending on the reason for each appointment, the information needed will certainly vary.  Our questions will also change with the type, age, or health status of your pet.  However, the above items can serve as a general guideline in the assessment of your pet's overall healthcare needs.

Please be sure that whoever will bring your pet in for his/her appointment is able to make healthcare and financial decisions during the visit.  It is vital that this person be informed about the pet's history and lifestyle so that s/he receives the appropriate and optimum treatments and services.

Also, if you are new to the practice, or if you are adding a new pet to your family, you can fill out your "Welcome Packet" ahead of time in preparation for your appointment.
