What to Expect On Your First Visit To Independence Animal Hospital

When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic, you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at Independence Animal Hospital in Independence, KS have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible health care for your pet. We have a state-of-the-art veterinary facility that is clean, comfortable, and efficient. Call 620-331-3740 to schedule an appointment, and we will find a time that is convenient for you.

Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam and may include teeth and gum cleaning if needed. Dr. Edward Epp, Dr. Kathi Bolton, and Dr. Erin Fisher will check the health of your pet from head to tail, and you will be very happy you came to Independence Animal Hospital for service. Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It’s best to keep a journal of your pet’s health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. Dr. Epp, Dr. Bolton, and Dr. Fisher can still work with whatever information you have. In some circumstances, they will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.

Animals large and small, we see them all.
