Whether it's your first visit to Sandhole Veterinary Centre in Snodland or you've been here before, your pet will need an initial consultation to establish whether any issues need attention.
Consultations can be used to investigate specific symptoms or injuries you may have noticed in your pet or as a general health and wellbeing assessment when you register your pet with us for the first time. If you have a new kitten or puppy who needs a microchip, we'll book them in for a consultation to check them over first.
One of our highly trained and experienced vets will welcome you into a private consultation room. We will ask you for any information that may be useful, like changes in your pet's behaviour or eating habits. If your pet is already registered with us, we'll also review their medical records and history. We'll then conduct a thorough physical check of your pet, concentrating on any particular areas where you may be concerned there's a problem.
If the initial consultation reveals any cause for concern, our vet will agree on the next steps with you. This could include medication, x-rays, referral to a nurse clinic, or further investigation. We'll keep you informed every step of the way. Often follow up consultations are necessary to monitor progress or change.
Unable to come to the practice?
If you are unable to visit us in practice, we may be able to help remotely. We can offer consultations by telephone or video. Your appointment will be with one of our highly qualified vets, who will give you the same time and level of detail, as you would expect in practice. In many cases, we can make a diagnosis and prescribe medication if necessary. If we're unable to reach a satisfactory conclusion by phone/video, we may need to see your pet physically.
