What to Expect at Harbor Animal Hospital

When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted warmly, asked to fill out a new client information form, and then invited into an examination room. We strive to see all of our clients and patients on time, and although we have contingencies for emergencies, there will be times when the unexpected will create delays. We will ensure these are minimized as much as possible.

Once in the exam room, you will be asked preliminary questions about your pet’s history by one of our professional veterinary nurses. They will also take your pet’s weight and temperature while continuing to gather important pertinent clinical information about your pet for the veterinarian.  One of our veterinarians will then perform an examination on your pet, answer any questions you may have, and prepare a treatment plan with further diagnostic or treatment recommendations as necessary.  Depending on the nature of your visit, you may see an exam room nurse again to provide you with further educational information and answer routine wellness and care questions for you.  Our friendly, efficient receptionists will then prepare any prescriptions if needed, prepare and present your invoice and schedule any needed follow-up appointments.

We look forward to meeting you and your furry, feathery, or scaly family members in the very near future!

Please print out a copy of our New Client Form ahead of time and bring it in with you and your pet on your first visit!
