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 15 minutes ahead of your appointment.
“I absolutely love Dr. Schmidt and all the staff. I have been bringing my fur babies, Pizzaman & Lamb Chop, to Lifecare since they were pups (4 years now) and it's always been nothing but wonderful. I appreciate the follow up calls after vaccines to check on my babies. Nothing but good things to stay about this veterinarian.”
