What to Expect

In your search for a veterinary facility, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. Our goal has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to continue to offer our world class service and a state of the art veterinary facility.

When you first come to our hospital for an appointment, you will be greeted by our friendly receptionist and receive a form for all relevant information that we should keep in our system to best serve you and your pet

Please come a few minutes before you first visit to fill out this form. If you would like to expedite the process, you can click here to download the New Patient Form. Once we have set you up in our system, your pet will stand on our scale and you will be led to an exam room.

A technician may come speak to you and get any pertinent information before Dr. Skees meets with you and your pet. Every office exam includes an in-depth, nose-to-tail exam. Dr. Skees likes to exam the whole pet every time, even when he comes in for a specific issue, so your pet receives complete care. If you have any questions or concerns, he will make sure that you receive a satisfactory answer and that your pet receives all necessary treatments.

Surgical Procedures

If your pet is spending the day with us for a surgical procedure, such as a neuter or teeth cleaning, we request that you drop him of between 8:15AM and 8:30AM.

  • There will be some paperwork involved, so please give yourself time to go over them and fill them out.
  • Your pet should be fasted of food and water after 11:00PM the night before the procedure.
  • If your pet has been prescribed medication, you will not give his dose the morning of the procedure unless directed by Dr. Skees.

All of our surgeries are performed in the morning, and we give a call, text, or e-mail as soon as the pet wakes up to give an update.

Typically, pick up time is around 4:00PM for routine surgeries.

Annual Preventative Care Exam

During your pet’s annual preventative care exam, Dr. Skees will address topics that are important for the life-long health of your pet and year-round preventative care. Ask about flea and heartworm prevention for your cat or dog. It important to protect your pet from internal and external parasites all year long to prevent deadly diseases. After your pet has been examined and vaccinated by Dr. Skees, a technician will bring him to our treatment area for a heartworm test, free nail trim, and to take a picture for his pet ID card that will be sent to your house.
