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.
If you have vaccination records to provide before your appointment, please email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Before Your First Appointment|
Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your pet's appointment for check-in.
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.
“Hurstbourne Animal Hospital always provides great care for our pup and explains everything so we can understand what’s going on.”
We are so happy we are able to open our doors for everyone again! As of June 3rd, we have an open lobby. You may still remain curbside if you wish, simply call the office upon arrival. Please continue to wear a mask if you have not been fully vaccinated. Thank you!
