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.
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 15 minutes ahead of your appointment.
“With several dogs and one cat, my wife and I have frequent and sometimes urgent needs for a Veterinarian’s expertise and care. They have NEVER let us down for either. The staff is friendly, attentive, and dependable. So much so they sometimes seem like an extension of our family. Both Drs. Klemm and Redding have always provided caring and expert treatment and advice. How many veterinarians make follow-up phone calls on the weekend? This has occurred on more than one occasion on behalf of our animals. We would never consider another veterinary clinic for the treatment of our Babies.”
