Meet Your Veterinarian
A member of our staff will go over your pet's history and problems with you. You are welcome to ask any questions, and we will devote time to answering them.
Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
We will give you a diagnosis and treatment options after we have assessed your pet. Your veterinarian and you will collaborate to come up with a treatment plan for your pet.
We'll write a detailed report of our diagnosis, our conversation with you, and your pet's treatment plan after your visit. We'll keep this information on file for you so you can access it whenever you need it.
