What To Expect


We believe that every pet owner should expect exceptional client service and expert health care from their veterinarian, and we have assembled a team committed to providing both in a friendly, comfortable, state-of-the-art facility. In order to minimize your time in our waiting room, you may wish to fill out our client information intake form in advance of your visit.

Your pet’s annual check-up will include a complete physical exam of your pet’s head, body, and cavities. If dental issues are discovered, an annual cleaning may be recommended in order to prevent more serious issues like tooth decay or disease.

It’s a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but things like your pet’s elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences you may notice. Keep track of small shifts in your pet’s behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications, and bring this diary when you visit your veterinarian. These small details may help us to put your pet’s test results into context and identify any larger issues. And, a complete medical history will be helpful should you ever need to change veterinarians.

From our four veterinarians to our support staff, our team is calm, compassionate and willing to explain any procedure we may recommend for your pet, to ensure her comfort and your peace of mind. In the event of a procedure that requires anesthesia, your veterinarian will likely suggest a few exams, including a chest X-ray and lab work of blood and urine, before your pet is anesthetized, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets. Your pet may need an IV drip; antibiotics may be necessary before and after. If your pet must undergo a procedure outside our team’s precise knowledge and experience, we may refer you to another vet with advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, surgery, and emergency care.
