Frequently Asked Questions

What questions should I ask my veterinarian?

As a pet owner, there are important questions you should be asking your veterinarian in order to provide the best care for your furry friend. Some of these questions include:

  • What diet do you recommend for my pet?
  • How much exercise should my pet get?
  • What are common diseases based on my pet’s breed/age?
  • How do I brush my pet’s teeth and how often do they need a professional cleaning?
  • What expenses should I expect annually for a healthy pet?

My pet is stressed coming to the vet. How can I make it easier?

Your pet can sense your stress about his/her upcoming vet visit. We know that some animals are anxious when it comes to their vet appointments, which is why our team strives to make the environment comfortable so they can feel as calm and relaxed as possible. 

We’ll also handle your pets with a gentle hand and make sure plenty of treats are on hand. If you know ahead of time that your pet will be stressed, call us prior to your appointment. There are medications available to administer to your pet at home before coming in that will help calm their nerves.
