Frequently asked questions

We now have a FAQ list that we hope will help you answer some of the more common ones.

What should I do if I need to cancel my appointment?

To ensure we’re there for our members when they need us, kindly let us know at least 48 hours beforehand if you need to cancel your appointment. This will enable us to offer the slot to another member and spread the love!

What if I’m running late for my appointment?

We understand that things can happen. Please contact us as soon as possible and we will determine if we will be able to accommodate you.

My pet is a new patient. What should I bring to my appointment?

Our Membership Coordinator will contact you before your first visit and discuss what to bring.  We can also coordinate acquiring previous veterinary records for you so that we utilize your appointment time how you want.

How can I transfer my pet’s record from a previous vet?

Let us know who to contact, and we will do that for you.

What type of pets do you see?

We see dogs and cats.

My pet gets stressed when going to the vet, what should I do?

Our top priority is to ensure that your pet feels relaxed and comfortable during their visit to our hospital. That’s why we have carefully designed our hospital with this goal in mind. You’ll find cozy seating arrangements that your furry friend can snuggle up on and complimentary treats for your pet. We encourage you to play an active role in your pet’s care, providing moral support and bringing along their favorite toys, treats, or blankets to help them feel more at ease. Additionally, you may want to consider using calming treats, collars, or sprays to soothe your pet’s nerves further.

Will I have access to my pet’s record?

Yes, through the easy to access online member portal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I get my pet’s medications from?

There are a lot of choices:
– We can send you home with medications from our in-hospital pharmacy
– We can show you the easy link on our website that will allow your pet’s medications to get sent directly to the address of your choice
– We can call the prescriptions into your favorite local pharmacy or we can send you a handwritten prescription to take to the pharmacy of your choice.

Can I get my pet’s prescription pet food from you?

Yes and we can set future shipments to auto-ship to the address you choose so that you will not have to worry about it.

Will you be able to fill a prescription written by another veterinarian?

No, for legal reasons we are not allowed to do that.  But once we examine your pet and determine if the medication in question is appropriate, we can then fill that medication.

Can you renew my pet’s prescription without an appointment?

It will depend on what health condition we are treating your pet for, the side effects of the medication, and when was the last time we examined your pet.  We may need to examine your pet to make sure the medication is still appropriate and helpful.

Can you renew my pet’s heartworm prevention prescription?

To renew your pet’s heartworm prevention, we require an annual heartworm test.  This is to make sure that the prevention will not cause harm.  We will also need to know your pet’s current weight.
