Stone Ridge Veterinary Hospital

For your convenience, we’ve provided a general overview of what to expect during your first appointment with us. We also encourage you to contact us with any additional questions or concerns.

Plan Ahead

It’s always important to take extra care when exposing your pet to a new environment. For the safety of every patient, we ask that your pet remains in a carrier or on a leash. Some animals can be intimidating or aggressive toward others they don’t know, so try scheduling your appointment at a time when our hospital is less crowded. If you have a more temperamental pet, feel free to discuss your concerns with us. We’re happy to advise you on appropriate management techniques, as well as basic training practices.

Our veterinarians are experts at making your pet feel comfortable and safe. If you have concerns about shy or aggressive tendencies, please discuss the situation with us. We will advise you on the best way to manage these issues.

The First Exam

The first exam will be easy and gentle. Your veterinarian will give your pet a thorough examination, including weighing your pet and checking the skin, coat, eyes, ears, heart and lungs, teeth, gums and overall health.

After the examination, the veterinarian will address any questions you have about your pet’s health. We will discuss health and wellness issues, vaccines, the possibility of spaying or neutering your pet and having them microchipped.
