Your First Visit
Knowing what to expect at your first visit to our veterinary hospital will make the process more pleasant for both you and your pet.
Check In & Complete Forms
Please arrive about 10 minutes early for your first appointment. When you arrive, you will be greeted by our front office team and asked to fill out our New Patient Form. To save a bit of time, you can complete the form online in advance.
A member of our veterinary team will weigh your pet and escort you to an exam room where you will be asked questions about your pet’s medical history, current medications and reason for the visit.
One of our veterinarians complete a thorough exam of your pet. They will then discuss their findings, assessment and recommendations. Our goal is to work with you to provide your pet with a long, healthy and happy life.
Payment & Financing
We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Debit Cards, cash, personal checks and CareCredit.
If you require financing, CareCredit offers 6-month and 12-month options to help you finance health and wellness needs for your pets.
