New Client Check In
Welcome to Litchfield Veterinary Hospital, we provide exceptional medical and surgical services - delivered with courtesy and respect!
What to expect
As a new client of our animal hospital in Litchfield you can expect our full attention to your pets needs.
When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted warmly, and we will escort you into an exam room after checking in your pet. One of our veterinary technicians will ask questions about your pet's current condition, medical history, and reason for your visit, gathering information for the doctor.
One of our doctors will then examine your pet, ask you further questions and may recommend diagnostic tests if needed. Your pet's doctor will then discuss possible diagnosis and a treatment plan as needed. Our veterinary technician will likely return to provide you with helpful pet care information, review take home instructions and/or medications, and answer any questions you may have. This is a great time to ask questions. Our veterinary team wants to make sure you are completely comfortable with the information the doctor has provided. Our receptionists will process your payment and schedule any needed follow-up appointments.
Medical Appointment Cancellation / No Show Policy
Effective August 1st, 2022, Litchfield Veterinary Hospital will require a $75.00 New Patient Deposit payable by credit or debit card to schedule an appointment. This deposit is credited to your account and will be applied toward your pet’s hospital visit.
