Excellent animal health depends on a partnership between YOU, the client, and US, the veterinarian and staff of Arlington Animal Hospital. Together we can give your pets many years of healthy life.
The three most important pieces of information your veterinarian needs to make a proper diagnosis are:
- SIGNALMENT – age, breed and gender
- HISTORY – your pet’s medical story
- PHYSICAL EXAMINATION
We have included some web links to help you gather information about animal health, behavior and medicine. However, nothing can replace the education, experience and expertise of your veterinarian. We are happy to schedule an appointment with you and your pet anytime you have questions or problems.
