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.
|Before Your First Appointment|
Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your pet's appointment in order to fill out necessary paperwork. Save time by visiting our patient forms page.
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.

“I trust Dr. Moore"s advice on my animal care. He gives a good exam of my dog and is thorough. He understands that I will do anything possible to take the best care of my dog but I am on a limited money supply! He doesn't mind giving me cheaper alternative treatments if I can't afford the first suggestion. The staff has been so good to me and my dogs Oreo, Tank, and Camo and in the last days for Tank and Oreo! A little expensive but it's worth it to get good care!!”
