Taking the Stress Out of A Trip to the Vet

As we mentioned above, our top priority is to help you feel at home. We know that a trip to the vet can be stressful for pets and owners alike, and that’s why you’ll find that regardless of the reason for your visit, we’ll treat you with kindness and compassion, explaining exactly what our plans are before we move forward. We’ll also discuss your options in detail. Have a question at any point? Don’t hesitate to ask us, because we want to make sure that you’re informed about everything we’re doing.

Because we know you’re searching for the best veterinary clinic, we want to share three things that we think you should look for. We know that it can be overwhelming to make the final decision, but below we’re highlighting the qualities that we feel are among the most important. Keep reading to find out more so that you can make the best possible decision for your pet.

What to Expect From Our Animal Hospital

Experienced Vets

First and foremost, it’s important to have vets with experience. This allows them to properly diagnose your pet, ensuring that he or she always gets the best care. You can learn more about our team here to get a feel for who we are and what each of us brings to the table. 

For example, Dr. Safi Chand practiced emergency medicine and surgery for more than a decade. In 2006, he finished his internship in small animal medicine and majored in emergency medicine and surgery. As you know, knowledge and experience are crucial components of any good clinic, but it makes a world of difference knowing that our staff are pet lovers as well. In fact, Dr. Chand developed a love for pets after growing up with German Shepherds in his home. That love of pets transcends to owning cats and fish of his own and enjoying horseback riding in his spare time.

At the end of the day, it’s the combination of experience and passion that makes our clinic special. We strive to be the team that’s known for going above to offer friendly and compassionate care to each and every one of our patients. 

Friendly Staff

Knowledge and passion don’t amount to much, however, if the staff doesn’t treat you and your pets well. The good news is that at New Market Animal Hospital, we make it a top priority to show you just how much we care. Whether your pet has had bad experiences with vets in the past or you’ve been overcharged for procedures that under delivered by others in our industry, you can count on us to do things the right way.

We strive to put you at ease by making jokes with you or sharing treats with your pet — as long as you give us the okay, that is! Either way, from the moment you step foot into our building, you’ll be greeted with a smile. From there, you’ll find that the rest of our staff is just as friendly. After all, when it comes right down to it, our goal is to create lasting relationships with you and your pets because it’s the best thing to do for everyone involved.

Flexible Hours

When you make the decision to get your pet into the vet, sometimes you want to make sure that you can be seen as quickly as possible. While other pet hospitals having limited hours, forcing you to accommodate their schedule (if they can make time for you at all), that’s not how we do things. In fact, we’re open until 6 or 7 pm on weeknights, ensuring that you can pop in for a visit even after you get off of work. 

Can’t make it in during the week? That’s totally fine! At New Market Animal Hospital, we’re even open on the weekends. Schedule an appointment between 8 and 3 on Saturday or 9 and 4 on Sunday, and rest assured that even if you don’t have a lot of time in your schedule, our flexible hours make it easy to get an appointment at a time that works well for you. It doesn’t get much better than that!

We can do it! At the end of the day, our goal is to offer everything that pet owners need for their pets under one roof. Other services we offer include laser therapy, ultrasounds, digital radiographs, orthopedic procedures, and more.
