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
  1. Complete all Patient Forms prior to your first visit.
  2. Assemble and be sure to bring all the proper items with you:
    • Your pet's adoption or purchase records
    • Any existing medical history
    • A list of current medications and supplements
    • Current feeding schedule and the brand of food you use
    • A list of questions you have for your veterinarian
  3. Collect any necessary stool or urine samples if requested.
  4. If you're bringing in your dog, be sure he or she is accustomed to being on a short leash. If you're bringing a cat, be sure to have an appropriate carrier.
  5. Feel free to bring your pet's favorite treats to keep them happy and distracted!

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 15 minutes ahead of your appointment.

Appointment Policy

To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please know that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.

Drop-Off Appointments

For your convenience, drop-off appointments are available. A drop-off allows you to bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him/her with us for a couple of hours. We ask that you drop off sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, they will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.

“Dr. Roof and Dr. Dokas are amazing people. Amazing veterinarians. I trust them 100% with my fur babies. They are very real and honest and they both have a big caring heart. We do not live close by but they are worth the drive. I tell everyone I know how amazing they are.”
