Much more than just a regular check-up
We understand that sometimes your pet’s health care options may be overwhelming, and they may be unexpected. Animobile will help guide you to make the decision that is best for you and your pet.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM
A veterinary assistant will gather information regarding your pet’s health, including medical history, current medications, diet, and presenting problem (if any). The veterinarian will review this information prior to the examination.
2) Examination and Initial Assessment
The veterinarian will perform a thorough physical examination of your pet. This will allow her to provide an overall assessment of your pet’s health and will provide a basis for her recommendations. Sometimes, especially during preventive care visits on healthy pets, or for minor medical problems, a diagnosis may be reached based off the physical exam alone. However, for many medical problems, further diagnostic tests will be necessary before a definitive diagnosis can be made.
3) Discussion of Recommendations and Treatment Options
After the physical examination and assessment, the veterinarian will make recommendations regarding further diagnostic and/or treatment options. This may include vaccine and preventive care recommendations during wellness visits, or it may include further diagnostics such as bloodwork and/or x-rays to investigate medical problems. Often, multiple diagnostic and/or treatment options are available, and the veterinarian will discuss the benefits and risks of each so you may make the decision that is most appropriate for you and your pet.
Once a treatment plan is agreed upon, any steps that can be completed the same day will be completed. In the case of preventive care visits, these will generally be performed during your visit. Many minor tests and procedures for sick pet visits can also be performed during your appointment. If extensive diagnostics or anesthetic procedures are required, we will discuss an expected time-frame for them, and work with you to schedule them accordingly.
Once your visit is complete, a veterinary assistant will review the veterinarian’s recommendations and any medications that were prescribed. We will also let you know when the veterinarian recommends seeing your pet again, and answer any further questions that you may have about your appointment.
