TYPES OF APPOINTMENTS AT YARMOUTH VETERINARY CENTER

 

OFFICE VISIT 

We see pets primarily by scheduled appointments. In order to provide excellent pet and client care, we routinely allow as much or more time for office visits as any other veterinary practice. We strive to stay on-time, but emergencies and urgent pet problems make occasional delays unavoidable. 

 

HOUSECALL

We do housecall appointments Monday through Friday, from the greater Portland to the greater Brunswick area.

  

DROP-OFF

For the convenience of our clients drop-off appointments are available. You leave your pet with us for part of the day. Dropped-off pets are quickly evaluated when they arrive and, if their problem is urgent or an emergency, they promptly receive the necessary care. While they are in our hospital all pets are monitored and cared for carefully. We always do an exam, but we never do other diagnostic tests or treatments unless the client has approved them. 

 

SURGICAL

Surgery usually requires general anesthesia. Most of our surgical procedures are scheduled in the morning; for these appointments we admit the pet to our hospital between 7:30 and 8:30 in the morning and discharge them between 3:00 and 5:45 in the afternoon. Occasionally we schedule a surgical procedure for the afternoon; these pets are dropped off by noon; sometimes they are awake and ready to go home the same day but most often they stay overnight and go home the next day.

 

DENTAL 

Pet dentistry requires general anesthesia. Most of our dental procedures are scheduled in the morning; for these appointments we admit the pet to our hospital between 7:30 and 8:30 in the morning and discharge them between 3:00 and 5:45 in the afternoon. Occasionally we schedule a dental procedure for the afternoon; these pets are dropped off by noon; sometimes they are awake and ready to go home the same day but most often they stay overnight and go home the next day.

 

TECHNICIAN

Our technicians and assistants are very skilled at a wide variety of nursing and medical procedures, ranging from routine nail trims and emptying anal sacs to blood collection to laser therapy to administering injectable fluids and other medications. Thus, many appointments are scheduled with a technician at YVC.

 

WALK-IN

We provide prompt care for emergencies. We do not routinely see walk-in appointments for less urgent problems, but we usually find a way to accommodate clients who arrive without an appointment.
