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 veterinarian can also provide pet-proofing tips, training assistance, and parasite protection recommendations.
|Before Your First Appointment|
Please arrive 15 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.
“I love this place. They always take plenty of time to answer all our questions. We are never rushed through an appointment. On our last visit with our dog, the doctor was able to help troubleshoot the issues with our elderly dog and make minor, low-dose medication adjustments that made all the difference in the world. Ellie May is acting 10 years younger! Thanks to Griffith, and the time they took to help Us, our pet is back to feeling well again. I’m SO glad we made the switch over to Griffith.”
