Welcome to Animal Hospital of North Asheville! We're always happy to welcome new patients. Learn what to expect at your pet's first appointment with us.
Knowing what to expect and how to be prepared for your first visit to our veterinary hospital will make the process quicker and more pleasant for both you and your pet.
Please arrive about 10 minutes early for your first appointment with us so that you can fill out a New Patient Form for your pet. If you'd like to save a bit of time, you can complete this form online.
After you and your pet have been introduced to your vet, we'll take you into an examination room where we'll review the history and habits of your pet and will discuss your goals for your pet's care.
The next step in getting to know your pet is a full 'nose to tail' exam. Older pets may also have blood tests to check their kidneys, liver and other internal organs.
If your pet is due for any vaccinations or laboratory work, we will also take care of these needs during this appointment.
Yes, it always is best to book an appointment ahead of time to ensure we have room in our schedule to see your pet.
In the event that your pet needs emergency care during our regular business hours, please contact our clinic nearest to you right away.
If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please call us as soon as possible so that we can offer the space in our schedule to other patients.
We don't have a cancellation penalty, but ask that you do your best to respect the schedules of our veterinary team. Thanks!
