PRIOR TO YOUR VISIT
Patients requiring specialty orthopedic care at the Sirius Veterinary Orthopedic Center must first obtain a referral from their veterinarian. Once an appointment has been set we will work closely with your veterinarian to obtain pertinent information regarding your pet (medical records, bloodwork, x-rays, etc). If possible, you should also get a copy of this information from your veterinarian and bring it with you. This allows us to provide the best conceivable care and keep your visit with us running as smooth as possible. In addition, please bring any current medications that your pet is taking.
Besides the information about your pet, we will need some information from you to create a medical chart and allow us to continue communication with you. Please download the following PDF forms, complete them, and return them by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. These PDF forms have fillable fields so you may complete them on your computer.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR VISIT
Sirius Veterinary Orthopedic Center (Sirius Vet) works closely with you, your pet, and your referring veterinarian to help return your four-legged athlete to their peak performance.
Upon your arrival to Sirius Vet, please make sure to have your pet on a short leash in order to ensure the control and safety of every pet visiting. One of our friendly customer care representatives will briefly make sure that we have all of the necessary information (client and pet information, medical records, bloodwork, x-rays, etc.) and have you promptly meet with the doctor.
During the visit, your pet will be thoroughly examined, any additional testing will be performed, a treatment plan will be presented, and surgery or follow-up will be scheduled. Your total time in the hospital will typically range from 30 to 60 minutes. To help us keep your time in the hospital as short as possible, please fill out the Client/Patient Information Form and Patient Medical History Form (see above) prior to your visit, bring any current medications, and help arrange to have previous testing (x-rays, bloodwork, etc.) sent or brought to our facility. Our customer care representatives will also be in close contact with your veterinarian to obtain this valuable information.
