When you make the first appointment;
1). Do not bathe your pet one to two weeks prior to the first appointment.
2). Please call your veterinarian and pick an a copy of your pet's medical record.
3). Please set aside about 1.5 to 2 hours for this appointment.

At the first appointment, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire. Further questions will be asked in order to obtain a detailed history of the problem. Examination of your pet's skin and general condition follows.

After the examination, we will discuss the possible causes of the disease, what tests are needed, treatment options, potential costs and prognosis. It may take several steps to reach a diagnosis. I would like to ask your patience, since a systematic approach is essential.

After my presentation, it is for you to make the decision on what is the best thing to do for your pet. Do not hesitate to ask questions and express your concerns.

You veterinarian will receive written reports and laboratory results after each examination.

The payment is due at the time of the service. Major credit cards, check, and cash are accepted.

Disclosure: I am a solo practitioner and do not have an assistant at this time. If your pet is not agreeable to be handled, it may be beneficial for you to work with one of my colleagues elsewhere with more staff.
