 School Tours

 Our staff looks forward to the hospital tours and career talks we give each year to the students of Estacada and Eagle Creek schools during National Pet Health Month

Reception Area

You and your pet will be greeted by our client services staff in our warm and friendly reception area.  After checking in, you will be escorted to one of our  four exam rooms.

 The reception area features:

  • Case of the Month - Medicine
  • Hospitality area with fresh coffee and tea
  • Retail area with quality food, vitamins, dental care products,  pet carriers, shampoos, leashes, collars, treats and fun toys
  • Walk-on scale for pets

Exam Rooms

We have four exams rooms where your pet's specific problems can be diagnosed and discussed.  In addition to physical exams, this area is also used for minor treatments, boarding and grooming check-ins and giving medication.

 One of our dedicated exam room technicians will obtain your pet's weight and medical history.  If a laboratory sample is needed for your pet's appointment, like a blood, urine or stool sample, it will be collected at that time by our technician.  The doctor will then join the technician to perform a complete physical examination and talk with you about their findings and recommendations.  If any prescriptions are necessary, they will be prepared at our pharmacy and you can be shown how to medicate your animal.  You and your pet will then be escorted to the discharge area to complete paperwork.
