What to Expect


For new client, We provide discount on first exam. Now pay $25 initial pet exam fee.

When you arrive at Sun Valley Regional Animal Hospital you can expect quality care for your pet. When you check in for your appointment, you will be greeted warmly and we’ll usher you and your pet into an examination room. Then, one of our veterinary technicians will take your pet’s vital signs and ask about his or her 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 formulate a treatment plan which may include diagnostic tests, medications, supplements, or therapeutic food. Before starting any treatment on your pet, we will go over the treatment plan, answering any questions you might have. We want to make sure you understand what the recommendations are, why they are being made, and what the treatment will cost.


Before your visit is over, the veterinary technician will come back to wrap things up and answer any remaining questions. In most cases, we provide written discharge instructions summarising the visit and home care instructions so you don’t have to remember a thing! Our front desk staff will then process your payment and schedule any needed follow-up appointments.

Please note: Our goal is to see all our clients and patients on time, but there are times when unexpected delays may occur due to emergencies. We strive to minimise any delays while providing thorough care to each pet.
