Both our hospital locations are Certified Cat Friendly Practices. One example of how we make you cat's visit as positive as possible is by feeding chicken/turkey baby food during their exam. Please cover your cat's carrier when you are traveling to the see us. If you forget we will place a towel sprayed with a calming pheromone Feliway over their carrier.
Please read this quick link on "Getting Your Cat to the Veterinarian" Reducing the Stress of Veterinary Visits for You and Your Cat. Feel free to bring your cat's favorite treats and toy to make their visit as comfortable and fun as possible. To make your cat's visit even better, please cover your cat's carrier with a towel during the entire travel time to and from the vet. When you arrive, we will escort you directly into an exam room. If an exam room is not available please allow us to keep your carrier in our "Cat Waiting Area" located behind the reception desk. When you are ready to check out, please leave your cat in its carrier in the exam room. You will then checkout with the receptionist, collect your cat, and exit. Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Please bring your dog's favorite treats and toy to make their visit as comfortable and fun as possible.
Weighing your dog- We will get a weight on your dog at every visit. The most effective way to quickly get an accurate weight on your dog at their exam on our scale, is for you to use treats as positive reinforcement to get your dog on and stay on the scale.
If your dog is dog reactive, please let us know so we can make special arrangements for your visit.
Dog reactive flow- When you arrive please leave your dog in the car, come inside and check-in with the receptionist-> We will personally escort you and your dog directly into your exam room at a time there are no other dogs in the lobby-> When you are ready to check out we will help you exit at a time when there are no other dogs in the lobby-> Once your dog is in your car, proceed to the reception desk for check-out.
If there is anything else we can do to make your pet's visit as stress free as possible, please let us know.
Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam, and may include teeth and gum cleaning if needed. Your veterinarian will check the health of your pet from head to tail, and you will be very happy you came to Redmond-Fall City Animal Hospital for service.
Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet hospital. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. Your veterinary team can still work with whatever information you have.
In some circumstances, your veterinarian will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
