At each wellness exam one of our experienced team members will get a current weight and temperature from your pet. You will be asked a short history to try to determine if there is anything new or different that we should be focused on during your exam. Often you can provide us information about your pet's behavior and routines that can be very helpful in determining what your pet needs. If you have more than one concern or any specific questions, please let the technician know so they can relay that information to the doctor. During your pet's wellness exam, the doctor will do a thorough physical examination of your pet. We will look at their eyes, ears and mouth, listen to the heart and lungs, feel their abdomen and lymph nodes as well as evaluate how they are walking and moving.
Many treatments can be performed in the exam room, such as vaccinations. For some treatments, such as blood draws and x-rays, we will take your pet to our treatment area where our highly trained team can better treat your pet safely. If you prefer that your pet receive treatments in the treatment area or the exam room, please let us know. We will do whatever we can to make your visit as pleasant and as safe as possible for both you and your pet.
After the physical examination is performed, a thorough treatment plan will be created specifically for your pet's needs, and we will go over the recommendations with you at this time. The treatment plan will itemize the recommended treatments and diagnostics, along with the associated costs, to help you make the best decisions for your pet�s healthcare. If you have any questions after going over the treatment plan, the doctor would be happy to discuss them with you at that time. This is the perfect time to ask any questions you may have about our payment plans so we can get started in setting that up for you.
Once all treatments and diagnostics are completed, payment arrangements have been made and all of your questions and concerns have been addressed, you and your pet will want to check in with the front office to set up any further appointments you may need. We look forward to meeting you and your pet!
