What to Expect at an Appointment
Knowing what to expect at your first appointment will help make the process more pleasant for both you and your furry friend.
1. Get Settled
Please arrive approximately 10 minutes early to fill out our New Patient Form. To save a bit of time, you can complete the New Patient Form online in advance.
2. Meet Your Veterinarian
One of our veterinarians will review your cat or dog's history and discuss their issues. They will conduct a physical exam, which will include checking your cat or dog's coat, face and head, teeth and mouth, and general demeanour.
You will be able to ask questions during this time, and they will take the time to answer them.
3. Exam, Diagnosis & Treatment
Once your cat or dog has been assessed, we will provide you with a diagnosis and options for treatment.
After your visit, we will create a detailed report of our diagnosis and your cat or dog's treatment plan. We will keep this information on hand for whenever you need it.
