What to Expect
On Your Well Pet Visit
Most well pet visits take 15-20 minutes, and heartworm and fecal results are available within 10 minutes of collection.
Before your well pet visit you may want to review your supply of heartworm and flea medications, and any other medications your pet takes regularly, so we can refill those if needed at your visit.
On Your Sick Pet Visit
Most sick pet visits take 30-45 minutes.
On Your Referral Visit
Your pet and your previous records will be examined, and we will make next step recommendations, which may be anything from additional medications to surgery. We may need to repeat some testing your veterinarian has already done, especially if several days have elapsed between when those tests were performed and when we are seeing your pet.
Referral pet visits may take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours.
Depending on our diagnostic and treatment plans, we may recommend you wait in town, or we may recommend that you return home while we care for your pet. If you are waiting in town, we are happy to provide directions and recommendations for things to do while you wait. We understand that traveling with your pet can be difficult, and will endeavor to get you and your pet back home as soon as we can.
After your visit we will send your veterinarian a copy of our findings and results of any diagnostic tests that were performed.
