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 veterinarian can also provide pet-proofing tips, training assistance, and parasite protection recommendations.
|Before Your First Appointment|
Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your pet's appointment for check-in.
While we do our best to make sure all of our patients are seen on time, there will be times of occasional unexpected delay due to an emergency or because we are providing care for a patient that needs a little more time. Please accept our apologies should this occur, and understand that the same dedication and courtesy will be provided to your pet should they ever need it.
“Dr. Shawn and his entire staff are absolutely amazing. Dr. Shawn has been our vet for so many years. I would go nowhere else. Everyone is extremely nice and knowledgeable and they treat our “babies” like their own and we are treated like family. Their personalized care and concern means the world to us. Scheduling and follow ups are “paws” above the rest. If you want incredible care for your fur babies I highly recommend them. Our pups are always in great hands. We love you guys.”
