When you are looking for a veterinary clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. At Morningstar Pet Hospital we have an exceptional team to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. We treat your pet as family.
For your first visit please bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It's best to keep a file of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you provide is with the name of your previous clinic we can request that the files be transferred on your behalf. If your pet does not have any previous history that's ok too; let us know everything that you think will be important.
You should take your pet in for a annual health check-ups in order to detect early signs of disease and increase the longevity of your pet's life. This will include a full physical exam where Dr. Kodsy will check the health of your pet from nose to tail. One of our Registered Veterinary Technicians will start the appointment by weighing your pet and then taking a thorough medical history by asking a series of questions about your pet and their habits. We will then discuss health care recommendations specifically for your pet based on their lifestyle and needs. We will take their vitals and pass along any important information to Dr Kodsy before he examines your pet. Our technician will be more than happy to provide a nail trim for your pet while you wait. A typical appointment lasts 30 minutes.
In some circumstances, Dr. Kodsy will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
