Appointment SchedulingTo allow sufficient time for patient visits and surgical procedures, Longs Peak Animal Hospital operates primarily by appointment. Our doctors always make a sincere attempt to see every patient on time. To prevent you from having to wait, we will always reach out and provide the opportunity for you to reschedule if an emergency case causes any appointment delays.
PreparationAll of our pets have their own unique personalities and habits, but since animals can’t tell us how they are feeling, we have to rely on you to describe your pet’s behavior leading up to a visit. Any changes in their dietary habits, energy level, or “bathroom” routine could be valuable clues for our doctors. (And don’t worry, we have to discuss poop all the time!)
ArrivalWhile your pet may be excited about a visit to LPAH, others may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings, and other pets. To make sure that all of our visitors are comfortable:
CATS: All cats must be presented in an appropriate cat carrier or on a leash.
DOGS: All dogs must remain on a leash and properly controlled while in our reception area and exam rooms. Please keep extendable leads fully retracted and locked.Upon arrival, our Reception staff will also ask dog owners to escort their pets to the scale. This is a great opportunity to show off your training skills and have them “sit” and “stay!”
