If your pet becomes ill or sustains an injury during the day, you can bring your pet directly to us or go first to your family veterinarian. Your veterinarian may recommend you bring your pet us, depending on the severity of your pet's injury or illness. In such cases, we will care for your pet on an emergency basis and collaborate with your family veterinarian to ensure that your pet receives the best, most individualized care our hospital has to offer.
If your pet is referred to our hospital for specialty care, please bring the following to your appointment, if possible:
A completed New Client Information Sheet
A summary of your pet’s condition from your referring veterinarian
A copy of current laboratory reports or blood work
A copy of any biopsy reports
A copy of radiographs/ultrasounds
A list of all medication that you are currently giving your pet
A list of current and previous major health problems
Any pertinent information from your current veterinarian, or any previous veterinarian, that is relevant to the current problem
If diagnostic testing or surgery (including endoscopy or ultrasound) is a consideration, food should be withheld after 9:00 p.m. on the evening prior to your scheduled appointment.
