Your First Visit
A pet's first visit to the vet can seem a bit daunting, so we've put together a list of info and resources to help you prepare.
At your first appointment, we will gather information about your pet’s background, health, diet, and training. We can also address any questions or concerns you might have.
Your veterinarian will examine your pet from nose-to-tail, looking for things like heart murmurs, ear infections, and/or parasites. Your vet can also provide pet-proofing tips, training assistance, and parasite protection recommendations.
|Before Your First Appointment|
Please note: Our goal is to see all our clients and patients on time, and although we have contingencies for emergencies, there will be times where the unexpected will create delays. We will ensure these are minimized as much as possible.
Arrive early to fill out paperwork
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your pet's appointment. If you have not filled out our patient forms yet, plan to arrive 30 minutes ahead of your appointment.
“We are new to the Tender Paws family and were introduced through A Chance to Bloom (the wonderful organization we adopted our dog from!). Every experience we’ve had there has been so positive. The people we’ve met care about the animals AND their owners. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to care for their pets!”
