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 encourage everyone I know to bring their pets here. Every doctor is amazing and the entire staff is comprised of the most patient and capable people I've ever dealt with at a veterinary office. For years they've kept my old dog acting young with more satisfying and more accurate diagnoses and treatments than any previous vet. I could not be more grateful for their unbelievable expertise. Price is on par with or better than others in the area for service that is above and beyond. My 16-year-old dog and I cannot recommend Poplar Animal Hospital enough.”
