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.
“I would like to say a very special Thank You to Dodd Animal Hospital. Lucy means the world to me and Dodd took very good care of her. I took Lucy in to get her very first puppy shots and now here we are getting her spayed and having her microchipped. Not once in all my visits have I encountered any rude staff. I called numerous times to check in on Lucy and the whole staff was very patient with me. This was the first time Lucy has ever been away from me and it was difficult. The Staff and the vets were so good at explaining things to me and even called to give updates on Lucy. Thank you for taking such great care of my Lucy and all the other animals out there.”
