What to Expect

puppy1.png When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service.  We at North Shore Animal Hospital in Racine WI have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible health care for your pet.  We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable and efficient.  Call 262-639-7500 to schedule an appointment and we will schedule a time that is convenient for you.

Your pet should receive an annual wellness exam which allows us to detect many health issues and diseases that would otherwise go undiagnosed and untreated.  This will include a full physical exam from head to tail including an oral exam, if the patient allows.  We can also update any recommended vaccines and preventative screening tests that are due at that time. You will be very happy that you came to North Shore Animal Hospital for service.

We ask that you provide us with any medical history that you have for your pet.  It is best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including changes in behavioral patterns.  If you have something like this, please share it with our team.  If not, we will ask that you provide us with information that you think will be important for the health and happiness of your pet.

In some circumstances, we will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or specialized surgery.
