When you arrive at the LVMC, please check in at the small animal reception desk. If this is your first visit to the LVMC, you will need to fill out a questionnaire. Once the questionnaire is returned to the front desk, the receptionist will facilitate your appointment. Please note that if you are waiting longer than 15 minutes, you should check with the receptionist. A fourth-year veterinary student, veterinary technician or clinician will meet with you and your pet for the appointment. During the exam, you will be asked to review your pet’s medical history and current findings. If further diagnostics are needed prior to beginning therapy, they will be discussed at that time as well as an estimate for the recommended therapy.
