Meet Your Veterinarian
A member of our team will review your pet's medical history with you and discuss any issues they might be having. This is a chance for you to ask whatever questions you may have and we will be sure to dedicate time to answering them.
Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
Once your pet has been assessed, we will give a diagnosis for your pet as well as provide treatment options. Your vet will work with you to determine which treatment will be right for you and your pet.
After your visit, we will create a detailed report of our diagnosis, the discussion we had with you, and your pet's treatment plan. We will keep this information on hand for whenever you need it.
