What to bring to your appointment?
If your pet is new to Crossroad Animal Hospital, please bring any medical history you have of your pet, including records of their last set of vaccinations. If you do not have copies of your pet's records, let us know and we will help you obtain any information we may need to continue his or her care.
Please bring any medications that you may be giving your pet, especially those requiring refills that may have been previously prescribed at another veterinary hospital.
How to make your pet's doctor visit as stress free as possible?
All dogs should be on a controlled leash at all times. If using a flexi-lead, please maintain control of your pet and keep him or her close to you as to respect the personal space of the other patients in the waiting area.
Please have your cat in a carrier. We do have an area reserved for our kitty patients and recommend placing the carrier on the table reserved as "kitty parking" as they prefer being off the ground. The reserved area of the waiting room is enriched with a plug-in diffuser that emits a feline calming pheromone to help ease their stress.
If your pet is coming in for a wellness visit, please bring us a fresh stool sample. If you are unable to bring one, we can always collect a sample during his or her appointment, however your pet would greatly appreciate it if you brought one in.
Some animals may experience motion sickness in a vehicle. If so, it is best not to feed your pet for at least two hours prior to travel. Some animals may even require medications. If you think your pet may need medication to prevent him or her from becoming car sick, please let us know.
If you have difficulty getting your cat into a carrier please call us. We have several tips that may be of assistance to you.
