What To Expect

We’re here to help you prepare for your first visit with us!

At Healing Paws Veterinary Care & Pet Resort, we provide what we like to call a personalized experience. When your pet is examined, while we certainly focus on the reason for the visit, we do not just stop there. After gathering a thorough history and conducting a comprehensive “nose to tail” physical exam, we’ll also incorporate nutrition, pain management, behavior, and medical well-being into each visit. In short, our services have been put in place to provide complete care of your pet.

At Healing Paws we believe In building a strong client-practice relationship. We will sit down with you and your pet and discuss all of your concerns, questions, your pet’s past medical history, and current needs. We will ask that you also provide us with a copy of any past medical records you may have for your pet.

Fear-free is the way we like to be! When beginning our nose-to-tail physical exam on your pet we like to ease them into things slowly. Your pet may need a little time to get used to us and that is ok. We are fully equipped with treats and fun distractions and will allow your pet to explore the exam rooms as they wish to make them feel more comfortable. We also have a beautifully designed “Living Room” exam area that feels just like home.

Following a physical exam, we will administer vaccines if needed and give our recommendations for your pet’s health. Our facility has a fully stocked pharmacy, digital radiology, laboratory, ultrasound, and diagnostic equipment.

After the visit is concluded, you can expect a follow up from either Dr. Sands, or another member of the team to check in with you, discuss the results of any tests that may have been sent to a laboratory, and provide any further guidance or advice that we feel may help with your particular situation. We want you to feel as though you are part of the team because you are! Together we’ll work hard to help your furry friend enjoy a long, happy life.

At Healing Paws, everything we do and every decision we make is focused on what will make our patients most comfortable and what will make being a pet owner more rewarding. From the calm, soothing music we use during exams to the plush, microfiber mats we use on our exam table, to the extra time we take to answer your questions, discuss your concerns and explain all your options. Our goal is to make veterinary visits a positive experience for everyone – especially those of the four-legged variety!
