Before You Visit

Before you bring your pet to our hospital, there are a few simple steps you can take to ensure that your visit goes as smoothly as possible.

  • Please bring your pet’s up-to-date comprehensive health and medical documents – including history of vaccinations/vaccination schedule and preventative care records – with you to your appointment if you are coming to us from a different clinic. If you are unable to obtain your pet’s records prior to visiting one of our clinics, we are happy to procure them on your behalf.

  • Also, please bring a stool sample with you to your pet’s annual wellness visit and/or if your pet is suffering from GI issues. If your pet is having urinary issues, we also recommend obtaining a urine sample, if possible. While these tasks may not be pleasant, they provide our veterinarians with valuable information about your pet’s state of health.
