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
Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your pet's appointment for check-in.
While we do our best to make sure all of our patients are seen on time, there will be times of occasional unexpected delay due to an emergency or because we are providing care for a patient that needs a little more time. Please accept our apologies should this occur, and understand that the same dedication and courtesy will be provided to your pet should they ever need it.
"Dr. Whitworth has truly been the best vet I have ever been to. His immense knowledge is impeccable along with the attention and love he shows to the animals and their owners. Approximately 5 years ago, we had an emergency with one of our dogs. We immediately took him to see Dr. Whitworth for advice as to what was going on. Almost instantaneously he diagnosed him with Addison’s Disease; which I thought was a bit funny just by looking at my dog. However, after the blood work and some additional tests, his intuition was spot on! Because of Dr. Whitworth, we now have our dog on a treatment program but best of all we still have our dog as part of our family. We give Dr. Whitworth the highest recommendation in the veterinarian practice and wish him the best of luck in his new endeavor!"
