What to Expect

As a new client of our Veterinary Clinic in West Alexandria, you can expect our full attention to your pets’ needs.

When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted warmly, and we’ll usher you into an examination room after checking in your pet.

In most cases, one of our veterinary technicians will start by asking about your pet’s medical history, current condition and the reason for your visit, gathering data for the doctor.

Then, one of our veterinarians will examine your pet, ask you further questions and then may recommend diagnostic tests if needed. Once the tests have been run, which can usually be done in the practice, your doctor will discuss a possible diagnosis and treatment plan if warranted.

This is a great time to ask questions. Our veterinary team wants to make sure you’re completely comfortable with the information we’re providing.

Our veterinary technician will likely come back to wrap things up and will provide you with helpful pet care information and answer wellness and care questions for you. Our front desk staff will process your payment and schedule any needed follow up.

Please note: Our goal is to see all our clients and patients on time, and although we have contingencies for emergencies, there will be times where the unexpected will create delays. We will ensure these are minimized as much as possible.

We are excited to meet you and your human and animal family members!

Over the counter availability of antibiotics for livestock is changing!

Over the counter availability of antibiotics for livestock is changing! As many of you may have seen, on June 11, 2023, many drugs will be available with VETERINARIAN PRESCRIPTION ONLY and no longer on the shelves of your favorite feed stores. This includes Penicillin, Oxytetracycline (Terramycin, LA200, Biomycin), Sulfa antibiotics, Spectinomycin, & Gentamicin. This is apart of the FDA’s efforts to bring human medically important antibiotics under veterinary control. This is all to decrease the antibiotic/antimicrobial resistance of medically important antibiotics. According to the CDC, Antimicrobial resistance happens when germs like bacteria and fungi develop the ability to defeat the drugs designed to kill them. That means the germs are not killed and continue to grow. Resistant infections can be difficult, and sometimes impossible, to treat.
A Veterinarian may only write a prescription for a patient or herd of which a Veterinary Client Patient Relationship (VCPR) is present. A Veterinary client patient relationship, or VCPR, is the connection between a Veterinarian, his/her client, and the animal patient(s). A valid VCPR is required for Veterinarians to prescribe drugs or direct an extra-label drug use, particularly in their absence. Under a VCPR, a Veterinarian must have sufficient knowledge of your operation to make medical judgments and it also means you agree to follow the Veterinarian’s instructions for medicating and treating. In simple terms, this means our doctors need to be on your farm once a year for a herd check or see the specific ill animal to prescribe any antibiotic or other prescription-only drug. To be valid, a VCPR must be renewed annually. Some of you have already been signing these forms on farm calls.
We highly recommend those with herds to be proactive and schedule a farm call to consult with our doctors at least once a year BEFORE your animals get sick. This way if they do fall ill, we can send the proper medications to begin treatment without being seen immediately, and can schedule appropriate follow-up with you because as with many other Veterinary clinics, our schedules books up so quickly.
