What to Expect at Your First Visit

Understanding what to expect during your pet's first visit to our veterinary hospital can help to make both you and your pet more comfortable. Our LakeCross Veterinary Hospital team will welcome you and your pet and will spend some time getting to know you both.

When You Arrive

Please arrive about 10 minutes early to fill out a New Patient Form for your pet. You may also download it to bring with you, or complete it online with the link below.

New Patient Form

Meet Your Vet

Your vet will get to know you and your pet by reviewing your pet's health history and discussing any concerns or goals for your pet's care.

Full 'Nose to Tail' Exam

Your vet will then complete a full examination, thoroughly inspecting your pet's skin, coat, ears, eyes, nose, mouth, legs, joints, and abdomen.

Using a stethoscope, your vet will also listen to your pet's heart and lungs. Older pets may also have blood work to monitor their internal systems. At this appointment, we will ensure that all vaccinations or lab work are up-to-date.
