Your First Visit
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.
To prepare for your pet's visit, we ask that you bring all prior Vaccination Records and Doctor's Notes.
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|
Arrive early to fill out paperwork
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your pet's appointment. If you have not filled out our patient forms yet, plan to arrive 30 minutes ahead of your appointment.
If appointment slots are full for services, from annual exams to emergency health concerns, chave the option of dropping-off their pets for the day.
Your pet will be supplied with a comfortable blanket and water, and cats will be supplied with a litter box in their kennel. Dogs will be walked outside by our kennel attendants throughout the day to allow them to stretch their legs and eliminate bowels.
Clients who wish to drop off their pet must do so between 7:30 and 9:00am and fill out the appropriate paper work, unless instructed otherwise by a veterinarian.
“Everyone there is so nice and professional. The office is clean and the prices are VERY reasonable. Dr. Medhus took his time with my dog and thoroughly explained his condition/treatment with me. I would highly recommend this office!!!!”
