Patients are seen on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Clients and their pets are scheduled in the morning beginning at 7 AM for surgery consultations. Our surgery patients are released the same day in the afternoon.  Clients and their pets are scheduled in the afternoon between 2:00 PM and 4 PM for new consultations, recheck appointments and surgery discharge appointments.

Pre-anesthetic Lab work

Lab work is an important part of the pre-anesthetic evaluation. Prior to anesthesia we require a complete Blood Count (CBC) and a serum biochemistry profile.  Other lab tests may be requested at the discretion of the doctor.

You can have the lab work performed at your referring Veterinarian’s office prior to your appointment.

Fasting Before a Dental Procedure

If your pet has a morning dental procedure appointment, withhold food  and water after 9:00 PM on the night before the procedure. Do not give your pet breakfast the morning of the procedure. If you have a diabetic pet or a pet with kidney problems, please call us for fasting instructions. Please continue any daily medications at the regular times unless instructed not to. If you have questions about the medications, please call us.

The Day of the Procedure

We ask that you arrive the morning of the procedure at 7:00 AM with your pet fasted. After your consultation with Dr. McCoy, we will get a contact number from you so we can call you with an update after the procedure. When we call you we will schedule an afternoon appointment to discuss your pet’s procedure and go over home instructions. We release patients in the afternoon between 3 – 4:30 PM. We do ask that you arrange to pick up your pet during those times as our clinic closes at 5 PM and we do not have after hours care.

New Consultations

Call us for an appointment to schedule a consultation.  Please bring your pet, lab work and any important history with you to the appointment. Please have your referring Veterinarian fill out a referral form and have it faxed to us prior to the consultation. We will be able to give you an estimate for your pet’s treatment and schedule the procedure appointment at the time of your consultation.
