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
  1. Complete all Patient Forms prior to your first visit.
  2. Assemble and be sure to bring all the proper items with you:
    • Your pet's adoption or purchase records
    • Any existing medical history
    • A list of current medications and supplements
    • Current feeding schedule and the brand of food you use
    • A list of questions you have for your veterinarian
  3. Collect any necessary stool or urine samples if requested.
  4. If you're bringing in your dog, be sure he or she is accustomed to being on a short leash.
  5. Feel free to bring your pet's favorite treats to keep them happy and distracted!

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.

New Drop-off Procedures

We have modified our drop-off procedures as a temporary response to the COVID-19 outbreak. We ask that you remain in your vehicle and call the front desk at (843) 769-6784 to let us know that you have arrived. Thank you!

“Everyone at the office was so kind!! When I asked questions about the treatments my pup would be receiving they patiently took the time to explain all of it. You can just tell they truly care about the animals and their parents! Would highly recommend it to anyone.”
