What to Expect at Kittrell Animal Hospital
When you know what to expect when you arrive at our clinic it will help make the process easier for both you and your furry companion.
We are a walk-in animal clinic so all you have to do is call us when you are on your way, sign in, and take a seat. We will do our best to see you and your pet as soon as we can.
Meet Your Veterinarian
Someone from our veterinary team will review your pet's history and talk about their condition. You are able to ask any questions that you have, and we'll designate time to answer them.
Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
After your pet has been examined, we will give you a diagnosis and treatment options. Your veterinarian will work with you to determine the best possible treatment plan for your pet.
Following your visit, we will create a detailed report of our diagnosis, the discussion we had with you, and your pet's treatment plan. We will keep this information on hand for when you need it.
