We want your visit to Lockridge Animal Hospital to be a great experience for you and your pets! Although, it is normal for pets and their owners to be anxious about the visit, especially if the pet is ill, we will go “above and beyond” to minimize any anxiety and stress for both of you! Our staff strives to empathize with the experience from your pet’s perspective. Whether the visit is for a routine healthy pet check up or for a medical problem we want you as the “parent” of your pet to have an active role in the appointment. Our findings and advice will be discussed with you at every step and we will formulate a plan that meets with your approval and expectations for the care of your beloved four legged “children”.

We also know that for some pet parents, getting their pet to the office can be the most difficult and stressful part of the whole experience.  Especially, those with cats.  Below are some handouts that can help guide you in making the trip to the vet office easier and less stressful.  If more help is needed please feel free to give the office a call.  Our team is here to help you.
