For clients who are coming to us for a wellness exam or perhaps a more specific issue a standard appointment from start to finish follows a similar pattern at each hospital.
Upon arrival at the reception area you will be checked in and and your file will be given to the veterinary assistant. They will take you to an exam room to take your pets picture, weigh your pet, go over a questionairre to find out more about your pets lifestyle and any health concerns you might have as well as take your pets temperature, get their pulse rate and a breathing rate. Once finished the veterinarian will join you in the exam room and go over everything from basic care and vaccine recommendations to more specific issues like a dental problem.
Once the exam has finished the doctor may complete a treatment plan, dispense medications or recommend further appointments. They will complete a Pet Health Report Card and sign any forms necessary. The reception team will book any appointments, assist you with any purchases and check your pet out of the appointment.
While we try to maintain a smooth schedule emergencies do happen and we thank our clients for their understanding when this happens. We do offer clients the option to check their pets into our hospital for a short stay to complete their wellness exam if the owner is unable to stay or rebooking is not appropiate.
