Ensure your primary veterinarian knows you that your pet has an appointment at our office. Some primary veterinarians require permission from you, the owner, to forward your pet’s medical records to our office. This transfer of records must be done prior to the day of your pet’s appointment so that we may review these documents. It is helpful to bring with you all medications that your pet is currently receiving and has received for the current issue. These steps ensure we are up-to-date on your pet’s disease course and are able to best modify their treatments. On the day of the appointment, arrive at least 10 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment.
