Pet First Animal Hospital - Bradenton, FL - Appointment Policy
To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please realize that our veterinarian Dr. Taylor and his technicians make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.
For your convenience, drop-off appointments are available. A 'drop off' means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him/her with our veterinary staff for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to drop off sometime in the morning so Dr. Taylor can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once Dr. Taylor is done, he will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and provide you with discharge instructions.
For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet. Animals must be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room.
Pet First Animal Hospital requires full payment at the time that veterinarian services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Care Credit, American Express, cash and personal checks.
