WHAT TO EXPECT
When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at the Animal Clinic of New Smyrna Beach have assembled an expert team to bring you the best possible care for your pet.
When you call to schedule your appointment, our receptionist will find an available date and time that works best for you. Typically, the earlier in the day you call, the more availability we have.
When you first enter the building, you will be greeted by our receptionist. It is very rare that any client has to wait in our waiting room because we book our appointments efficiently and generally stay right on schedule. We will escort you and your pet back to an exam room and have you fill out new client forms.
Dr. Cox and a technician will come in and discuss your pet's history and any present health concerns. Dr. Cox will check the health of your pet from head to tail during a physical exam. This includes listening to the heart, taking a pulse, and examining the ears, eyes, mouth, skin, and joints. He will answer any questions or concerns you have regarding your pet's health and make recommendations for the care of your pet. Bring in any medical history you have of your pet or medications that they are on.
Upon leaving, you will be checked out by our receptionist and she will schedule any follow up visits that may be necessary. She can also assist you in purchasing any flea prevention, heartworm prevention, or shampoo that your pet may need. If your pet was here for its annual exam (aka yearly), they will go home with a toy for their good behavior!
