Making an appointment for your client
You may make the appointment for the owner by calling 515-294-4900 (small animal) or 515-294-1500 (large animal). If the animal has not been a patient at the Veterinary Medical Center before, you may need to provide the following information about the animal and it's owner at the time you make the appointment:

How to Refer a Client
Appointments are scheduled Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Additional appointment scheduling can be requested from the clinicians in the specialty area. It is preferable that you call prior to scheduling an appointment so that you may visit directly with the clinician receiving the case. If available, please send a pertinent summary of the patient history, results of recent lab work and radiographs. Lab work and radiographs may be repeated if clinician of record feels it would be best for the patient's diagnostic and treatment plan.
