Thank You for choosing us for your pet's health care needs and Welcome to North Shore Animal Hospital!
We are located on the West side of Douglas Ave. between 3 and 4 mile Roads and have ample parking for your convenience.
We ask that you provide us with any previous medical records along with any information that you think will be important for your pet's future medical care needs. If possible, we appreciate acquiring these records in advance.
Please try to arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment so that we can get your pet comfortably checked-in and weighed. We may also have forms for you to complete or previous records to copy and review.
For their safety, please bring your pet in a carrier or on a short leash in order to keep them close to you during their visit with us.
You and your pet will be called to one of our examination rooms as quickly as possible to minimize your pet's stress level.
We love happy patients, so your pet will probably receive a lot of treats during their visit! If your pet has specific allergies or a special treat they really enjoy, please bring their own treats with you. We also sometimes use peanut butter as a treat for our patients Please let us know if any members of your family are allergic to peanut butter.
We recommend that your pet receives an annual wellness exam. This enables us to detect many health issues and diseases that would otherwise go undiagnosed and untreated. Our wellness exam includes a full physical exam from head to tail, including an oral exam if the patient allows, and a consultation session with one of our Veterinarians to address any concerns that you may have regarding your pet. We will also ask you to complet a Risk Factor questionaire to help us determine what your pet's specific health care needs are. We can also update any recommended vaccines and preventative screening tests that are due at that time.
For some cases and circumstances, we will refer you to a Veterinary Specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or specialized surgery.
