For many years the veterinary industry has struggled to balance an approach to patient care that allows professionals to get the job done while minimizing patient stress. Several movements have led to advances in this process and are resulting every day in patients that are happier to visit their veterinarian.  Our entire staff is focused on making your dog or cat’s visit as calm as possible. For patients scheduled for an anesthetic procedure, medications are now being sent home to be administered on the morning of the appointment in order to help ease stress related to separation, the medical treatment environment, and sedation prior to and recovery following the procedure itself.
