What To Expect During Your First Visit

Making the decision to visit a new animal hospital can be both exciting and filled with anticipation. You may have questions about what to expect, what to bring, and the wonderful experience that awaits you. Let’s delve into what you can look forward to during your first visit at Amor Animal Hospital.

  • Initial Impressions Matter: From the moment you step into our clinic, you’ll feel warmly welcomed and at ease. Our spacious reception area offers amenities like coffee, tea, water, and even delicious snacks for you and your pet! Our friendly team will greet you and your beloved pet with warm smiles. We’re genuinely delighted to meet you! Additionally, we provide separate waiting areas for cats and dogs, ensuring their comfort and peace of mind. However, if you and your pet prefer to wait together in a private exam room, we are always happy to accommodate your preferences.
  • The Check-In Process: Upon your arrival, please check in with our client care specialist. You may be requested to complete some forms, including your pet’s medical history and a consent form. We’re always pleased to assist you in obtaining your pet’s medical records from your previous veterinary clinic. These documents are crucial for our veterinarians to gain a comprehensive understanding of your pet’s health.
  • Meeting Your Veterinarian: After checking in, you and your pet will be taken to an exam room where you will meet your pet’s veterinarian. This is your opportunity to get to know your veterinarian and for them to get to know you and your pet. They will ask you questions about your pet’s medical history, any current health concerns, and your pet’s lifestyle.
  • A List Of Medications: If your pet is currently taking any medications, it’s important to bring a list of them with you to your pet’s first visit. This includes prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, and any supplements or vitamins they are taking. Our veterinarians need to know about all the medications to ensure there are no potential interactions or conflicts with any new medications they may prescribe.
  • Examination: Your veterinarian will perform a physical examination of your pet. This will include checking their weight, temperature, heart rate, and overall appearance. They will also examine your pet’s eyes, ears, mouth, and paws for any signs of illness or injury.
  • Vaccinations and Preventative Care: Depending on your pet’s age and medical history, your veterinarian may recommend certain vaccinations or preventative care measures. This can include flea and tick prevention, heartworm medication, and other vaccinations to protect your pet from common illnesses.
  • Blood Work And Other Tests: In some cases, your veterinarian may recommend blood work or other tests to get a better understanding of your pet’s health. This can include blood tests to check for heartworm or other diseases, as well as x-rays or ultrasounds to examine internal organs.
  • Discussion Of Your Pet’s Diet And Exercise: Your veterinarian may also discuss your pet’s diet and exercise routine. They may recommend a specific type of food or feeding schedule, as well as exercise recommendations to keep your pet healthy and active.
  • Addressing Any Concerns Or Questions: During the visit, your veterinarian will also address any concerns or questions you may have about your pet’s health. This is a great opportunity to ask about any behavioral issues, dietary concerns, or other questions you may have.
  • Questions To Ask Your Veterinarian: Before your first veterinary visit, it can be helpful to prepare a list of questions to ask your veterinarian. This will ensure that you don’t forget anything important and that you have a clear understanding of your pet’s health.

Here are some questions you may want to ask:

  • What vaccinations does my pet need?
  • What is the best diet for my pet?
  • How much exercise does my pet need?
  • Are there any behavioral issues I should be aware of?
  • What should I do if my pet gets sick or injured?
