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 vet can also provide pet-proofing tips, training assistance, and parasite protection recommendations.
|Before Your First Appointment|
Arrive early to fill out paperwork
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your pet's appointment. If you have not filled out our patient forms yet, plan to arrive 30 minutes ahead of your appointment.
“I can say without reservation that in the course of raising 3 grown children, 6 dogs, and 1 cat...we have never experienced the quality of medical care and the level of delightful customer-patient-family care that has been so evident with all of our interactions with ALL staff...every day!! Wilmington Animal Healthcare is in a League of its own- it has "raised the bar" compared to its competitors here in Wilmington.”
