Plan Your First Visit

Your first appointment

  • How do I transfer my pet’s record from a previous clinic?

    • Simply call your previous vet office to request a copy of your records, and bring them with you.

Or, you can request to have them sent directly to us at:

Fax: 704-495-3254

Email: [email protected]

  • How long will my first appointment take?

    • We schedule appointments for 30 minutes. During this time, your pet will receive a full physical exam and any recommended treatments (such as vaccines), and you’ll have time to ask the veterinarian any questions you may have.

We recommend you come about 10-15 minutes early to fill out paperwork (or, fill out your first visit form now, and bring it with you).

  • What do I need to bring to my first appointment?

    • In order to serve you and your pet most efficiently, we recommend bringing a copy of any medical records you have for your furry family member.

You can bring a copy with you, or call your previous veterinarian to have the records sent directly to us, at:

Fax: 704-495-3254

Email: [email protected]

If your pet is taking any medications or supplements, it can also help to bring the containers with you, so we can make a note of the brand and dosage for your pet’s medical records.

  • I just got a new puppy/kitten. What should I do?

    • First of all, congratulations!

Go ahead and give us a call and tell us more about your new pet’s age, where they’re from, and any records you have of their vaccines, parasite preventions, and other medical history.

We’ll take it from there, and schedule an appointment to meet your new furry family member, and get their next vaccines when due.

If your puppy or kitten is ill, please call or seek veterinary care right away.
