Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by one of our receptionists, who will assist you in completing our check-in procedure and who will ensure that we have all the required information needed on your pet.
After this stage is completed, one of our trained veterinary assistants will lead you into an exam room. Here, you’ll meet one of our specialty doctors or emergency veterinarians who will take a thorough history of your pet’s health and perform a physical examination.
Once the physical examination is complete, we will present a diagnostic/therapeutic treatment plan personalized for your pet. We will discuss the prognosis, provide a cost estimate for the suggested procedure and answer any questions you may have.
