What to Expect


What to expect when you arrive at the Hanover Veterinary Hospital

When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted warmly, and we’ll usher you into an examination room after checking in your pet.

In most cases, one of our veterinary technicians will start by asking about your pet’s medical history, current condition and the reason for your visit, gathering data for the doctor.

Then, one of our veterinarians will examine your pet, ask you further questions and then may recommend diagnostic tests if needed. Once the tests have been run, which can usually be done in the practice, your doctor will discuss a possible diagnosis and treatment plan if warranted.

This is a great time to ask questions. Our veterinary team wants to make sure you’re completely comfortable with the information we’re providing.

Our veterinary technician will likely come back to wrap things up and will provide you with helpful pet care information and answer wellness and care questions for you. Our front desk staff will process your payment and schedule any needed follow up.

What to expect when you arrive at the Walkerton-Hanover Veterinary Clinic

While most appointments booked through the Walkerton-Hanover Veterinary Clinic take place on farm, all in clinic visits will be met with a warm greeting from our friendly office staff.

Our small animal clients can expect to have their pets checked in and weighed by one of the staff and ushered into an appointment room.  This is when one of our veterinarians will discuss any health concerns, perform a physical exam and begin and necessary treatments or vaccines.

Our large animal clients can expect a knowledgeable staff member to help them schedule any routine or emergency appointments by phone or in person.

When the veterinarian arrives at the farm they will begin with asking questions to gather information about the animal in question.  Once a history is gathered, the veterinarian will then begin a physical exam.  Findings will be reported to the owner and diagnosis and treatment will be discussed.

The veterinarians and team are always happy to answer your questions.  At any time during or after the appointment is a good time to ask questions!  We want to work with you to keep your herds and pets happy and healthy.

Please note: Our goal is to see all our clients and patients on time, and although we have contingencies for emergencies, there will be times where the unexpected will create delays. We will ensure these are minimized as much as possible.

We accept VISA, MasterCard, Debit and cash for payment at both locations for your convenience.

We are excited to meet you and your human and animal family members!
