HIDDEN - Other than my pet, what should I bring with me for our first appointment?

We need anything that could be important in determining your pet’s condition and history. That includes: any past medical records, vaccination status, and any medication your pet is currently on. You will be asked about your pet’s nutrition (what you feed and how often) exercise routine, as well as any behavioral changes you have noticed.

What type of injury or illness do you consider an emergency?

Answer

If something is wrong with my pet, can I call you and ask for a diagnosis over the phone?
The short answer is, No. While we can get some pretty good clues over the phone, we cannot diagnose your pet until we see them in person. So many conditions present symptoms that you may not detect, but we can. The best bet is always a personal visit with a licensed veterinarian.
Do you require that pets be leashed or kenneled while in your clinic?
Yes, all pets should be leashed for their office visit, or kept in a portable pet carrier.
My pet is pretty stressed during vet’s office visits, can we wait for our turn in the car instead of in the waiting room?

I am worried about the upcoming surgery for my pet. What do you do to keep them safe while under anesthesia?
We begin with pre-surgical lab work that gives us the current ability of your pet to withstand a procedure. During surgery, your pet is continually monitored by the surgical team and then moves to post-op, where we continue to monitor all vitals, and ensure that they feel calm and secure as they wake up.
