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. If you have not filled out all relevant patient forms yet, plan to arrive 10 minutes ahead of your appointment.
Aggressive Animal Policy
For the safety of our staff, we reserve the right to refuse service to a dog or cat that is showing signs of aggression. However, we will make every attempt to thoroughly examine every pet. If your pet requires a muzzle, we ask that you muzzle your pet prior to your arrival at our facility.
"I am in awe of this place. After being quoted WAY out of budget by a few other local vets for my puppy's first visit, I'm so grateful to have found Lakeside! The entire front desk is so welcoming and helpful, the techs are very informative and comforting, and Dr. Wiltshire is phenomenal. You CANNOT beat the price, wait time, care, and professionalism. I'll recommend this facility to EVERYONE. Thank you ALL for making our first visit an unforgettable one. We are super impressed and happy to make Lakeside our primary vet!"
