Admitting Forms and Information

If your pet is scheduled for a procedure, completing the following forms will be helpful and can expedite the admitting process.    If you are unable to bring your pet into the clinic personally, it is important that you contact our office prior to the appointment so that we may provide a treatment plan for you.  This treatment plan outlines what services we will be providing during the appointment and the estimated costs involved. 



Print off and complete all admitting forms.  Please do not feed your pet after midnight the night prior to their appointment; however, keep water available at all times.  Any prescription medications that your pet may take should still be given as prescribed.  If you have a diabetic pet taking insulin, please ask us for specific instructions.


AT YOUR APPOINTMENT:  You will meet with a veterinary technician for approximately 10-15 minutes to review your forms and answer any questions you may have. 



Our doctors strongly recommend pre-anesthetic blood work prior to all anesthetic procedures.  This lab work tells doctors how your pet’s organ systems are functioning and what anesthesia would be appropriate for them.


Pre-anesthetic testing can be completed the day of the procedure; however, we are able to offer a more comprehensive panel at a reduced cost if the sample is drawn prior to the day of the procedure.  For more information, please contact us at 509-946-4138.


Pets can’t say how they’re feeling—it’s usually how they look or act that tells you something is wrong.  You play a key role in helping your pet combat illness and stay as healthy as possible.  Awareness of the warning signs and regular preventative health screens, including a physical exam and blood work, are the best ways to ensure that your pet lives a long, healthy and happy life.  


We look forward to providing you and your pet the service and care that you both deserve.
