Congratulations on your new pet!! What a thrilling (and busy!!) time for you and your family. The staff at the Ivanhoe Veterinary Clinic love to meet new patients!! Whether you have purchased a tiny puppy or kitten, or if you have adopted an older dog or cat, it is recommended that you make an appointment to have your new pet’s health checked with Dr Victoria, Dr Suzanne or Dr. Eric. During these consultations, your pet will get a thorough check-up, right from tip of the nose to tip of the tail.
Your pet’s heart, lungs, abdomen, bones and muscles, eyes, ears, skin, body condition and dental health will be thoroughly checked. By identifying any issues early on, our veterinarians can help you to devise a plan for the management or correction of any problems that may have been observed.
We ask that you bring any relevant paperwork (for example previous vaccination certificates, microchip information) or current treatments (such as any previously prescribed medications or preventative treatments such as flea or worming treatments) to the clinic at your first appointment. This will ensure that our veterinarians can assess what your pet is and is not covered for at that time and devise a plan for future veterinary care.
Our vets will also take the time to discuss the diet that you are feeding to your new pet and are also more than happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding desexing, toilet training, behaviour or how best to settle your beautiful pet into their new home. We can help you if you are looking for a veterinarian near you
