You and your pet will be warmly greeted by our staff and checked in for your appointment. Please let us know if you have any concerns or questions so that we can best assist you.
A member of our team will then bring you and your pet to an examination room, where the doctor will discuss your pet’s history and any current concerns. A physical examination will be performed and, depending on the reason for your visit, additional diagnostic testing may be recommended.
After the examination, the doctor will go over all of their findings and recommendations with you. You will then have the opportunity to ask any questions before scheduling any follow-up appointments or procedures. We understand that each pet is a member of the family and we will take the time to ensure that you are comfortable with all of our recommendations.
A routine first examination will include:
This examination will also depend on your pet's age and health. For senior pets, we recommend more frequent examinations and diagnostic testing to catch any potential problems early. For example, a geriatric blood panel may be recommended to evaluate your pet's organ function and identify any underlying health conditions.
We understand that your time is valuable, so we appreciate you entrusting us with the care of your beloved pet. We will do everything we can to make sure that you have a positive experience at Calusa Veterinary Center.
