What to Expect

Upon arrival, you and your pet will be met by one of our senior veterinary students who will gather your pet’s medical history and conduct a thorough physical examination. The student will then consult with one of our clinicians who is in charge of your pet’s medical care and will provide suggestions and guidance. A care plan along with a cost estimate is then developed and presented to you.

Our team approach ensures that your pet receives the highest-quality care possible, however it also means that your appointment may take longer than it would at a traditional primary care clinic, so please plan accordingly.
