Standard Appointment Times
At Oceanside Animal Hospital we practice based on the individual needs of the pet and owner. As a result, appointment times vary between 15 minutes and 1 hour, based on the needs of the case. Typically new puppy and kitten examinations, avian and reptile examinations, skin disease, and new pet exams are scheduled for longer appointment times to allow for the doctor and staff to thoroughly address your pet’s needs. If you have schedule restrictions that would make this difficult for you please let our staff know and we will gladly tailor our service to fit your needs and schedule.
Drop Off Service
To help accommodate our busy clients we offer drop off services for examinations and procedures along with a day of pet daycare if needed until you are able to collect your pet later in the day. To take advantage of this service we do require a completed examination survey, consent form, and up-to-date contact information. We do not require that the owner personally drop off their pet but it is imperative that the owner personally fill out and sign the attached forms to allow us to provide the best care for your pet. We find that if these forms are not completed by the owner then we will often obtain only partial histories with vital information missing. Please help us to take care of your pet by completing these steps.
