What to Expect During Your First Visit

Your pet deserves the best care possible. When it’s time to visit a new vet, you may wonder where to start. Placing your animal in someone else’s hands takes a great amount of trust, and our team at Blue Lake Animal Hospital is prepared to gain yours. 

We are wholly dedicated to you and your pet, delivering outstanding care when you need it. Our preventative medicine promotes your pet’s wellbeing and involves high-quality medications, procedures and treatments. We’re accepting new patients, and we’d love to meet your pet. Here’s what to know as you get acquainted with our office.

Starting fresh is exciting, and visiting a new vet is no exception. During the first visit, we aim to make the experience enjoyable both for you and your pet. We will introduce you and your pet to our team and get you comfortable at our office. We’ll discuss your pet’s current and past medical history to get an idea of what we’re dealing with. There will be some paperwork involved, and we’ll learn if you have pet insurance to cover certain procedures. To make the process run smoothly, we’ll transfer medical records from your previous vet.

First impressions matter, and we’re here to exceed your expectations from the moment you and your pet arrive at our office. We want to make the most of each and every visit going forward. Before you come, know what is likely to happen at the initial appointment: 

  • Basic Testing. We’ll do basic, noninvasive tests on your pet, such as checking its heart rate, blood pressure and weight. We will also do a simple physical examination to check for any abnormalities. 
  • Meet Our Veterinarians. You’ll meet our friendly office staff and veterinarians. We’ll introduce you and learn about your expectations and possible concerns. 
  • Begin Wellness Strategy. From the very first appointment, your pet receives individualized attention. If we suspect a health problem from the get-go, we will begin building a preventative strategy to help your pet become as healthy as possible. 

It’s normal for your pet to be a bit nervous upon entering our office for the first time since new places can be an overwhelming source of new scents and sights. Know that your pet is in good hands as we treat all patients with empathy.
