What You Can Expect on Your First Visit
At your pet's first appointment, you'll be able to get acquainted with our team. We will welcome you and your pet to our Thomasville Veterinary Hospital Urgent Care + Surgery family.
1 | Arrival
Please try to arrive about 10 minutes before your appointment time to fill out a New Patient Form for your pet. If you'd prefer, you can fill complete it online and submit it to us.
2 | Initial Assessment
You and your pet will meet your vet. At this appointment, your vet will review your pet's health history and discuss any goals you may have for your pet's care.
3 | Examination
Your vet will thoroughly examine your pet, checking their coat, skin, eyes, ears, mouth, nose, legs, joints, abdomen, and anal sacs.
Using a stethoscope, the vet will listen to your pet's heart and lungs. Senior pets may have other tests as well, such as blood tests and a physical check of their internal systems. If your pet needs any of their annual vaccinations or lab work, we will make sure they are up to date during this appointment.
