Please Note: With the high demand for wellness appointments and needing to be able to see sick pets – if you do NOT SHOW UP for your scheduled appointment there will be a $35 fee assessed to your account. Cancellations do happen but we ask for common courtesy and giving us the greatest amount of notice possible. Simply not showing up takes time away from patients that may need more urgent care.
Everything you need to know about Southfork Animal Hospital!
Southfork Animal Hospital feels that all pets should be seen for a physical exam at least once a year, and some pets (depending on their age and health conditions) should be seen more often. This regular check-up is a critical part of keeping pets healthy and will involve a thorough head-to-tail exam. An integral part of this annual wellness exam is a discussion with your regarding nutrition, behavior, and preventative care. When a client comes to us for the first time, it’s helpful if they share any previous health records or information, and we welcome any information that they feel is important about their pet.
A regular exam, in addition to updates and feedback from owners, helps us maintain an ongoing record of a pet’s health. We pay attention to many factors, such as weight, eating habits, behavior changes, bathroom habits, oral health and activity level, to name a few. We believe it is in the best interest of all pets if we can work in partnership with owners to keep their pets healthy. We encourage owners to keep a medical journal of their pet’s health throughout its life – client observations are crucial in maintaining and discovering health issues.
Consistent with our goal to provide clients with excellent medical care, in some circumstances, our doctors may offer clients a referral to a specialist who has advanced expertise in their respective niche of veterinary medicine.
We do not bill so we can focus on our patients’ needs, our customer service and minimize clinic costs for everyone.
We accept cash, personal checks (within guidelines, and ID may be required), debit cards and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express). We also accept Care Credit which is a line of credit specially used for medical costs and can have deferred interest.
