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.
“The staff at Benbow is amazing! They're accommodating and compassionate and actually listened to all of my concerns. The office is so nice and clean and is a calm environment for pets who are nervous due to being out of their element. Thank you, Benbow, for taking excellent care of my Maggie! You have a new patient.”
We are so excited to announce that we are now accepting walk-ins at our hospital! We are still accepting scheduled appointments, but we will now also welcome everyone to come in with no appointment when they need us.
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you and your pet soon!
