Dr. Patty Rickard will check the health of your pet from head to tail, and you will be very happy you contacted A Home Veterinarian for service.
Have any medical history you have of your pet when you and your pet has their appointment. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with us. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. Dr. Rickard can still work with whatever information you have.
In some circumstances, Dr. Rickard will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
