SCHEDULING AN APPOINTMENT
Animal Health & Healing is a full service
integrative veterinary practice offering both conventional
medicine and surgery and holistic therapies. We are
located in the Maplewood area of St.
Louis County at 2615
S. Big Bend Blvd., about ¼ mile
north of Manchester Road. We are just south of the Clayton/Richmond Heights
area and north of Webster Groves.
Conventional veterinary clinics often schedule
patients every 15 minutes. As a holistic clinic we need
more time than that to assess your pet as an individual.
This entails learning about your pet’s environment,
behavior, lifestyle, and medical history. Therefore, many
of our appointments range from 30 – 60 minutes depending
on the case. We only schedule one patient at a time. This
allows us to focus all of our attention on your pet with
minimal distractions. We respect your busy schedule by
not over-booking appointments. We strive to see our patients
on time. In turn, we ask that our clients arrive on time,
or a few minutes prior to, their scheduled appointment.
This allows us to spend the entire allotted time with your
pet and prevents us from running behind schedule.
We strive to maintain a quiet and comfortable
atmosphere for the benefit of our clients and patients.
In order to better serve you and your pet we request
all cell phones and pagers be turned off during your
visit with us.
At Animal Health & Healing our fees reflect
the time our veterinarians spend on your pet’s case.
This includes time spent both in and out of the exam room.
Our doctors will review your pet’s medical records
prior to their first visit with us. If your pet is receiving
acupuncture or homeopathic treatment, the doctor will spend
time working up the case to determine the best acupuncture
points or TCM formula, or homeopathic remedy.
For pets coming in for their first initial holistic
exam, we require partial payment in advance. This can
be done with a credit card (Master Card, Visa, or Discover)
or by check. This payment allows the doctor to start
reviewing previous and current medical records and developing
a holistic therapeutic plan to meet your pet’s
individual needs. If you need to cancel this appointment,
the fee is refundable with 24 hours notice. You may reschedule
the initial holistic exam without penalty anytime.
We ask that only one or two adults be present with
the pet during the initial holistic exam. This exam is 60
minutes in length and this will allow our doctor and you
to focus full attention on your pet with minimum distraction.
We encourage you to take notes during this visit as well.
The entire family is always welcome on subsequent visits
to our clinic.
