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 15-30 minutes ahead of your appointment. We are happy to request your pet’s health records from another practice if needed.
We are happy to provide drop-off service. Please bring your pet in the morning and he/she will be seen as the schedule allows. If it is your first visit, please bring completed new patient forms while dropping off.
“We LOVE Seaside! Sampson is our 16yo 5lbs toy poodle. He received top-notch service and care from the vets and staff. Dr. Cranford and Dr. Rich explained procedures Sampson needed in detail, and they showed great care and compassion. Dr. Cranford and Dr. Rich are honest and they provided fair pricing and 5-star care for our Sampson. We are happy to say Sampson is doing great! We are so appreciative and grateful. A big thank you to the vets and staff at Seaside!”
