What To Expect

Portsmouth veterinary services – delivered with courtesy and respect!

As a new client of Scioto Trail Animal Clinic in Portsmouth, you can expect our full attention to you and your pet’s needs.

When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted by one of our friendly vet assistants, and we’ll begin by checking you and your pet in and then weighing your pet at our weight station and ushering you into an examination room.

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

One of our veterinarians will then examine your pet, ask you further questions and 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 assistants will likely come back to wrap things up and will provide you with helpful pet care information and answer any wellness and care questions you may have. Our front desk staff will process your payment and schedule any needed follow-up appointments.

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 are excited to meet you and your pets here at STAC and look forward to seeing you soon!
