You and your pet will be escorted into an examination room. Your vet will review your pet's health history and discuss any goals or concerns you may have about their health. We are always more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
3. 'Nose to Tail' Exam
Your vet will then complete a thorough exam of your pet including their coat, skin, ears, eyes, mouth, nose, legs, joints, and abdomen. We may also have blood work done for senior pets to check their internal organs, and take care of any vaccinations or laboratory work that may be due.

Your vet or veterinary assistant will discuss your prescribed medications or recommendations for at-home care with you. Payment for the visit and any prescription medication can be handled at this time, as well as scheduling any follow-up appointments that may be required.
