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|
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 30 minutes ahead of your appointment.
“Today I took my pup, Neville, in to be rechecked for an injury he had last weekend! By mistake, we were charges with a full check-up rather than a recheck. We didn't even notice and less than an hour later KC called us and let us know about the mistake along with a credit on our account to be used at any time! We love Ark and most importantly our pups love Ark!”
