The Treatment Room

Has your pet ever been taken back to the treatment room?

We all have been in a situation with our pets where the veterinarian asks to take our pet "back" to the treatment room. It may be concerning why part of the exam or procedure must take place there but here are a few reasons why your veterinarian chooses to do this.

The treatment room is used for a variety of procedures such as blood draws, nail trims, ear cleaning, and wound cleaning. This is the heart of a veterinary clinic and where we perform the majority of our procedures.

Most pets are actually better behaved without their parents there to watch, and it can be easier to look in their ears or eyes if they are calm. Because your pets know you so well, they can tell if you are anxious or worried and that can affect their behavior while here. Sometimes it may be necessary to muzzle your pet. Keeping your pet, and our staff, safe allows us to complete the exam or procedure more efficiently. Ensuring everyone's safety sometimes requires the use of a muzzle on your pet while in the treatment room.

While we occasionally offer you the option of coming back into the treatment room with us, that isn't always a possibility. It is not uncommon for us to be performing a minor surgery, or having a difficult conversation with a client in the treatment room.

We want you to understand what we are doing and why we are doing it. Your pet's health and happiness is our top priority. If you have questions or would like an explanation behind our policies and procedure, please ask us!
