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.
“My 13 1/2-year-old Yorkie, Tootsie started with sudden severe neck pain. After bringing her to 4 different specialty vets I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Benbow. Multiple meds had not helped her. She had 3 acupuncture treatments and all meds have been stopped. Tootsie is about 95% improved and on no meds. Dr. Benbow is phenomenal. She will now be my Tootsie’s vet. Thank you, Dr. Benbow.”
