Walk-in’s are always welcome at our clinic! We do recommend scheduling all geriatric examinations as these frequently take a full 30 minutes. We are getting busy these days – so calling ahead of time is always recommended to avoid a wait! (206) 602-6369
Vaccination Only (no exam fee):
If one of our veterinarians has examined your pet in the last year, feel free to drop to update vaccines. If we have never met your pet, we require a veterinary exam within the last year. We can still administer the Bordetella Nasal Vaccine without a veterinary examination— Vaccines will be administered either by a licensed veterinary nurse or the veterinarian. The doctor or nurse will record a weight before vaccine administration.
Please tell your health care provider if your pet has a history of vaccination reactions. If you have questions about your pet’s health – please schedule a complete medical consultation with physical examination.
Annual Exam: ($45)
The healthy pet annual exam is a time to speak with the veterinarian about your pet’s overall health and well-being. The veterinarian will perform a full examination, discuss dental care, diet, and answer any questions you may have about your pet’s health. This is also a time to perform yearly vaccinations if due and bring in a fecal sample for yearly testing. It is important that we see your pet once a year as a current annual examination is required to dispense prescription products including:
- Special diets
- sedatives for travel and fireworks
- flea prevention
If your pet has a specific problem, injury or illness that you would like to discuss with the veterinarian, we recommend a full medical consultation. The veterinarian will perform a physical examination and discuss diagnostic and therapeutic options. You will always be presented an estimate before medical therapy is started; this is the time to ask questions to make sure you and the veterinarian are on the same page about your pet’s care.
Geriatric Pet Exam with Laboratory Blood Work
As your pet gets older or starts to slow down, you might have a lot of questions about what to expect in this next stage of life. The veterinarian will make time to answer every question, document every lump and bump and discuss how to achieve the best quality of life for your pet. For dogs 9 years and older and cats 12 years or older—we typically will recommend checking a blood panel yearly to assess overall health and address any underlying problems. Our goal is that you never feel rushed during this appointment; that you leave with all your questions answered with piece of mind and a better understanding of your pet’s health.
