In your search for a veterinary facility, we believe that it is not unreasonable for our clients to expect high quality care as well as great service. It is our commitment to ensure that our veterinary health care team delivers! At Lee Veterinary Clinic, we recognize that each of our patients is unique and it is important to be treated as such. This is why you and your pet will always receive personalized education, recommendations, and treatment plans.
During most companion animal visits, your pet will receive a total comprehensive examination upon which the doctor first and foremost focus on any chief complaints or medicals concerns as the examination will be the primary step to understanding not only more about the concern (such as causes and risks) but help provide an overall understanding of your pet’s health. To the best of our ability, pending your pet's level of tolerance, we will perform an observation of the pet’s behavior and mechanics as well as assess the vitals (lung and heart sounds) and physically examine the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, teeth, skin, hips and abdominals. Additionally, we will also provide education and guidance on essential care such as environmental protection (including vaccinations, internal & external parasite testing, to fleas, parasite, and heartworms preventative), nutrition, exercise, oral care and behavior.
If your pet must undergo an evaluation or procedure that requires more specialized expertise, your Veterinarian may refer your pet to one of our trusted area specialists - Veterinarians who are board certified or experts in a particular area such as internal medicine, orthopedics, specialized surgery, and/or emergency care.
How to prepare & make the most of your pet’s veterinary visit:
- Collect and provide a freshly bagged stool (fecal) sample in the event one is needed and/or necessary for your pet’s visit. Although our team is highly trained at rectally extracting a sample, it is not the most comfortable for pet nor does it provide us the best representative sample.
- Bring in any records of veterinary care that your pet has received at any other hospital or clinic or any other documentation of administered care.
- Bring in any and all medications, in their original container, that you are or have recently been administering to your pet. This includes any over the counter medications.
- It's a good idea to keep a medical diary of things such as your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. Take this notebook when you visit the vet. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may be essential information to the diagnosis of your pet or help explain results of your pet's medical tests.
