Healthy pet visits are where our doctors get to know you and your pet. Regular examinations throughout your friend’s life are where our doctors learn the little things that make your pet special and where they find the small changes on the insides that you cannot see at home. Through those nose-to-tail examinations and diagnostic testing, our doctors work with you to personalize a plan for both the best veterinary and home care. We believe in sharing our findings and recommendations with you (based on our ongoing studies of the most current scientific medical data) so that we can together provide the proper nutrition, dental care, mental and environmental stimulation, supplements, parasite prevention, and immunization for your pet! At each healthy visit, the doctor will get to know your pet, perform an examination and baseline diagnostic testing and then share with you the proper whole pet care to be sure your friend can live their best life!
Pet Wellness Appointment Styles
Concierge Appointments – Our healthy pet appointments are scheduled 30-45 minutes in order to allow time for your pet to relax and for us to provide the level of care they deserve. The night before your visit, you will submit an important history form electronically. When you arrive with your pet, please stay in your car and text “ARRIVED” according to your parking sign instructions. As we have found our patients to be much more comfortable and trust our team more when there are not other pet owners in the building, your pet’s care advocate will bring them in for their exam while you interact with their care team and doctor through a live screen video in your car. This allows us to have excellent communication and you get to see your pet while they build relationships with our team members. This also helps our team members stay safe in the current world health environment so that we can continue to provide veterinary care without interruption due to illness. Pet owners consistently have been quite pleased to see how well their pets do with curbside service and with how much they get to see and learn during their visit all from the comfort of their own car! We find that our clients really love using the live screen video to watch their kitties relax in the bird garden window or their dog snag treats off our exam room table. If you do not have a smartphone, we will provide you with a handheld tablet for our live screen video and if you choose to decline video we ask that you have a fully charged and turned on mobile phone with you so that our team can still properly communicate during your pet’s visit. Please remember that you will want to reserve approximately an hour of your time for this appointment.
In-Patient Wellness Appointments – For those of you who prefer not to wait in the car or who can not leave work for an hour during the day, we offer in-patient wellness exams. For these visits, after you have submitted an important history form electronically the night before, we will admit your friend in the morning and you can head off to your work or home. During the day, one of our veterinarians will examine your pet and then will contact you with her findings and recommendations, then one of our certified veterinary technicians will perform any needed tests or vaccinations. You will pick up your friend at a previously scheduled time in the afternoon, receive a detailed exam note report and be on your way!
