What to Expect

When you are looking for veterinary care, you want a clinic that is designed so pets feel comfortable and clients feel welcome. At Paradise Ridge Pet Clinic, Dr. Eleanor Newcomb and her staff will take the time to explain recommended tests and treatments, as well as answer any questions that you may have. You will not feel you are just a number on an impersonal list of patients here.

One of the most important things we can provide for your pet is an annual check-up. This means your pet will receive a full physical exam, where the Doctor will listen to the heart and lungs, look into the ears,  discuss diet and body weight, and more. Teeth cleaning and parasite control may be recommended, if needed. Exams give Dr. Newcomb the chance to get to know your pet and make sure any concerns are addressed from head to tail. As a pet owner, it can also be helpful (and fun!) to keep a medical journal for your pet throughout his or her life, including past surgeries, vaccinations, and behavioral shifts. If you have created such a record, please share it with our team. We want to get to know your pet as well as we can!

In some cases, pets may need to be referred to a specialist if the Doctor thinks they require extra care in areas such as internal medicine or surgery. Our connections with experts in the field will ensure that your pet is still taken care of, even when it leaves our office.
