Information For New Patients

Welcome to Lake Norman Animal Hospital! Read on below to learn about what to expect at your pet's first appointment with our Mooresville vets.

Your First Visit

Knowing what to expect during your first visit to our veterinary hospital can help make the process quicker and more pleasant for both you and your pet.

Step 1
Get Settled

If possible, please arrive about 10 minutes early for your first appointment with us so that you can fill out a New Patient Form for your pet. To save some time, you can complete this form ahead of time online. New Patient Form

Step 2
Meet Your Vet & Talk About Your Pet

After you and your pet have been introduced to the vet, we'll escort you into an exam room. Here, we'll review your pet's health history and habits, and discuss your goals for your pet's care. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like!

Step 3
'Nose to Tail' Exam

Next, the vet will perform a full 'nose to tail' exam. They will thoroughly examine your pet’s skin, coat, eyes, ears, mouth and nose, as well the legs, joints, abdomen and anal sac. They will listen to your pet’s heart and lungs, and older pets may also have blood tests to check their kidneys, liver and other internal organs. If your pet is due for any vaccinations or laboratory work, we will also take care of these needs during this appointment.
