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|
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.
“Our family has taken our animals to Dr. Sheila for over 15 years and by family, I mean the whole family aunt, grandma, mom, and brother. She will even come to your house for the comfort of your pet. She is very compassionate and understanding when it comes time to let go of older pets. Last fall my senior dog was very sick and with the help of Dr. Sheila and staff they found out he is diabetic. We've spent many hours at the office doing glucose tests to regulate his blood sugar, but he is regulated and doing great. Michelle is always very helpful in person and over the phone. Dr. Sheila is always there to take care of my dog and put my mind at rest knowing he gets the best care in the valley. I would highly recommend the Mountain Mobile team to anybody!!”
