Our Practice &Your First Visit
The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt is headed by an experienced, compassionate veterinarian and a dedicated staff of technicians, assistants, and office personnel. We have the latest in veterinary technology and always stay on top of the most recent innovations in veterinary medicine. This means your pet will always have access to the best of care regardless of whether you are coming in for surgery or a regular checkup. Not only that, but we also pride ourselves on treating your pet just as if they were one of our own. We understand that your pet is your family, and the bond you share is deep. At your pet's first visit, we will get the basics of your pet's health at that time. This means weighing your pet and taking other vital statistic measurements. We will then use this information as a baseline for future visits, to let us know if your pet's health has gotten better, worse, or stayed the same, and in what ways.
After the initial examination and tests, we will recommend any services your pet may need right away, such as vaccinations, spaying or neutering, medicine for fleas and/or ticks, or a change in diet. Once those are out of the way, we will recommend a schedule of visits, usually annually for young, healthy pets, and maybe more often for pets with health issues, or elderly ones. And, of course, we will give you our contact information and let you know you can call us to make an appointment to bring your pet in any time you need to between the regular checkups.
What to Do Next
Explore our New Patient Center, become comfortable with who we are and what we can offer you and your pet, then call us to make an appointment for your pet's first visit with us. Complete one of our convenient online forms before your appointment to make your visit as easy as possible.You will be so pleased you chose us as your pet's primary health care provider. Once you experience the difference between our practice and a standard veterinarian's office, which is a whole world of compassion and kindness, you will know you never need to look elsewhere for the best pet health care in North Carolina.
We are looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt family. Get ready for a joyous journey of optimal health for your pet. Contact us today! We can be reached at (336) 252-2208.
