What to Expect

Welcome to Oaklawn Animal Hospital!

When you arrive at our clinic, you will be greeted by one of our friendly receptionists. They will check your address and phone information and confirm your appointment time and reason for your visit.

Then one of our technicians or assistants will escort you and your pet to an examination room, take a brief history about how your pet is doing, and check his or her temperature and weight. The technician or assistant will then review your pet’s history with one of our doctors.

The doctor will meet you in the exam room to examine your pet and ask/answer any further questions. At that point, the doctor may make any diagnostic or treatment recommendations or update any vaccinations. If we need further diagnostics, we may perform them at that time or we will escort you back to the reception area to collect any medications and payment.

Pets must have a scheduled appointment before coming to our hospital. This allows us to have sufficient time with each client and patient. If you arrive without an appointment, we will make every attempt to schedule an appointment for you at our earliest opportunity. We recognize that our clients have busy lives, and we strive to keep our appointments on time.

New clients and morning hospital admissions

If you are a new client or are admitting your pet for evaluation, feel free to download and complete the appropriate form before arriving for your appointment. These are some of our most common forms. If you do not see the one you are looking for, we will provide it to you on the day of your appointment.
