Once you enter the exam room a technician and assistant will get a basic history, check overall health and start drawing blood, trimming nails, getting vaccines set-up. Whatever the veterinarian might need is prepared prior to her arrival.
A complete and thorough exam will be done every time your pet is brought in- whether for vomiting or for a torn toe-nail. Since animals can’t talk, we want to be sure that nothing is missed.
This is the best time to bring up any problems or concerns you may have, or any changes your pet may be experiencing. We may not be able to address multiple problems in one visit, but at least we can get started with a game-plan for future treatments.
For most procedures, you can stay with your pet, if you wish. Sometimes though, some pets are braver and better behaved when not protecting their family.
