At Front Range Veterinary Clinic, we want to help give your pet the happiest and longest life.
If available, bring your pets previous medical history when you visit our office. It’s best to keep a journal of your pet’s health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. The physical exam is a very important aspect of your pet’s wellness. During this exam, the doctor evaluates the entire pet, which includes:
- An eye exam using an ophthalmoscope
- An ear exam using an otoscope
- A heart exam using a stethoscope
- Other points evaluated include teeth, skin, coat, vital signs, body condition, and joints. Doctors also use their hands to palpate the abdominal contents. On average, veterinary physical exams discover three additional health concerns than what is known by the pet owner.
- Our exams include a discussion of lifestyle and a consultation of your concerns.
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 by placing on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room

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 us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to drop off sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, she will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.
Feel free to ask us any questions. And of course, we take it upon ourselves to keep you in the know.
