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 veterinarian can also provide pet-proofing tips, training assistance, and parasite protection recommendations.
|Before Your First Appointment|
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your pet's appointment for check-in and to fill out your pet's patient forms.
While we do our best to make sure all of our patients are seen on time, there will be times of occasional unexpected delay due to an emergency or because we are providing care for a patient that needs a little more time. Please accept our apologies should this occur, and understand that the same dedication and courtesy will be provided to your pet should they ever need it.
“Westside completely exceeds expectations for pet care and communication with clients. The techs and doctors go out of their way to help clients make informed choices for their pets, including detailed exam notes, estimates for services, and communications via email and phone. These people really care, and they do a fantastic job. The care you'll get here is second to none, and I only wish I'd been known about them sooner!”
