Appointment tips

Timing is everything

In today's busy households, noise, chaos and crowds are often unavoidable. If your housekeeper's vacuuming, your handyman's hammering, or you're hosting all the kids in the neighborhood for a pool party, chances are good that your pet won't be in a good mood for the exam.

The same thing goes for recent grooming appointments. If your Poodle just had her five hour makeover, she's probably more than a little peeved. If your Persian kitty is fresh from his annual lion-cut, he'll definitely need some time to relax and collect his thoughts.

The ideal time to schedule a home visit is when your household and your pets have been calm & quiet for several hours, or even a few days. Dr. Steve will appreciate your consideration, and so will your pets!

Estimated Arrival Time

Life is often unpredictable. Because of Los Angeles traffic and other variables, Dr Steve cannot guarantee specific appointment times. Instead, he usually gives a one-hour window for his estimated arrival. Please remember that this is just an estimate! If he's running late that day, Dr Steve will call/text/email and let you know. If the house call needs to be cancelled or rescheduled, cancellation fees will not apply in this situation.
