What to Bring To Our Houston Veterinarian

Upon your first visit, it’s important to bring in any medical history you have of your pet. Make note of any behavior issues you would like to address and any other concerns you have. The doctors and staff here at the Houston Animal Clinic will work with whatever information you provide, including current examination results to provide comprehensive care.

What to Expect

During your first visit, our staff will greet you in the waiting room and ask you to fill out the required forms. To save time, it’s possible to download the forms online and bring them with you when you come. You may also fax your information in so that we have you processed and ready for your pet’s examination when you arrive. If your pet is having surgery, be sure to download the surgical information packet and go over it before you arrive. 
Other things to bring with you include a fresh stool sample that allows the vets to check for parasites. Be sure to get the name of the food you are feeding your pet, along with the times and the amounts. Our veterinarians can provide advice about your current feeding schedule and offer recommendations.

The First Exam

Most first exams include weighing your pet, examining the condition of the eyes, skin, coal, heart, lungs, gums and overall health. During this time, we will make recommendations for vaccines and a parasite prevention regime. We can discuss spaying and neutering and microchipping, if this has not yet been done.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I’ve been coming here for over 25 years and with over a dozen pups. I’ve moved 4 times and regardless of distance VMDAH is the only choice for me."
    Bob N.
  • "I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Crist and Veterans Memorial Drive Animal Hospital. I have NEVER been to a doctor (especially a veterinarian) who took a full hour to do an exam and history. I was so impressed with the time taken and genuine concern that Dr. Crist had for my kiddo. I am so happy that they provide alternatives to traditional veterinarian medicine like chiropractic, acupuncture and supplements. I highly recommend VMDAH!"
