Before our arrival:
1. Please provide us with all available medical records for your cat(s). Send all veterinary, shelter, and adoption records to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to (919) 391-4292.
If you prefer that we contact another veterinarian to obtain records, please provide us with their contact information at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled visit.
2. Prepare a comfortable exam area in your home. A small, tidy, quiet, and well-lit room such as a bathroom is ideal. Make sure access to potential hiding spaces is blocked.
3. Place your cat in the prepared room or to a cat carrier prior to our arrival. If your cat cannot be located and secured within 15 minutes of our arrival, we will reschedule your appointment and will charge a consultation fee for our visit.
During our visit:
1. We will ask you relevant questions about your cat's medical history and any concerns that you have while your cat acclimates to our presence.
2. Dr. Kirch will perform a complete physical examination and explain all findings and recommendations to you.
3. With your approval we will administer recommended vaccinations, collect samples for laboratory testing, and perform any additional services.
4. At the conclusion of our visit, we will collect payment for all goods and services provided. We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. We do not make payment plans or accept post-dated checks. A fee of $35 will be assessed to all returned checks.
