Frequently Asked Questions

FAQOffice FAQ

What types of animals do you see?

We are proud to say that we do our best to accommodate any and all sizes of pets and livestock. Our office happily cares for reptiles, small rodents such as guinea pigs and rabbits, along with dogs, cats and birds. Not to mention seeing to the needs of horses, llamas, alpacas, pigs, sheep, goats and cattle, just to name a few.

 

Do you offer a senior citizen discount?

Unfortunately at this time our office does not office a special discount for seniors but we strive to keep the cost of pet care as low as we can for our clients and we accept CareCredit for those times when an emergency brings on an expense that is hard to bare.

 

Where do I take my pet in case of emergency?

We have an emergency cell phone number on our office answering machine that we ask our clients to call in order to speak with our veterinarian personally and receive the best guidance on getting the care needed  for your pet.

 

How do I transfer my pets’ records from a previous clinic?

Any records your pet has from another clinic can easily be forwarded to us through our e-mail address: sanmiguelvetclinic@hotmail.com or if the other clinic is unable to e-mail us, they can also fax to 970-327-0203. However, we ask that if e-mail is a possibility your other vet clinic do so instead of faxing records because that helps us keep down our expenses at our office and thus allows us to keep the costs down for our clients as well.

 

Do I need an appointment for my pet to see a veterinarian?

Yes, any time your pet needs to see a veterinarian for routine care we must first setup an appointment. However, during normal business hours we are able to take in any life threatening emergency as a walk-in emergency. If your pet is experiencing an emergency and you happen to be able to call our office while you are in route, the early notice does allow us to prepare for your emergency before you get there and possibly notify other clients that our veterinarian has an emergency in route in case they would like to reschedule their appointments for another time. The extra time to prepare for an incoming emergency is always appreciated but not necessary.
