What to Expect at a Veterinary Appointment
Knowing what to expect at your first appointment can make the process run as smoothly as possible for you and your feline companion.
1. Get Settled
Please arrive approximately 10 minutes early to fill out our New Patient Form. To save some time, you can complete the New Patient Form online in advance.
2. Meet Your Veterinarian
Your veterinarian will review your companion's medical history and listen to your concerns about their health. You can ask any questions you want, and they'll dedicate time to answering them.
3. Exam, Diagnosis & Treatment
Your cat will be thoroughly assessed by their veterinarian. Once this is complete, they will provide you with treatment options.
Afterwards, we will create a detailed report of the examination and treatment plan. We will keep this information on hand for whenever you need it.
