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 veterinarian can also provide pet-proofing tips, training assistance, and parasite protection recommendations.
|Before Your First Appointment|
All patients are seen by appointment. We confirm appointments 1-2 days in advance and confirmation is required. Please confirm the appointment with us by phone call, e-mail, or text message; otherwise, we will consider your appointment canceled.
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.
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.
For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date.
“I’m very impressed with the attention and presence that Dr. Jordan gave to Kali and me. We recently moved to San Marcos from Cedar Park. I loved my last vet, but the move necessitated a change. I’m attached and protective of my fur baby and I’m very pleased with the move to Tickle-Blagg Animal Hospital.”
