Antelope Valley Vet-Visit Questionnaire

Hey friends, found this on the ASPCA website and thought it may help when bringing your pet in for a visit. It’s always helpful when a pet owner comes in prepared to assist the veterinarian in giving the best possible care for their four legged family member!

Vet-Visit Questionnaire



Whether you’re visiting a new vet for the first time or bringing your dog for an annual checkup, it’s important to be prepared. The veterinarian will likely ask you a series of questions to determine your dog’s overall health and well-being. Think you know your dog’s medical history backwards and forwards? Well, it doesn’t hurt to brush up on the basics—download our helpful questionnaire of things your vet might ask you during your visit. And remember, if your vet doesn’t ask something that you have a concern about, don’t hesitate to bring it up.

1) How long have you had your dog? 
2) Where did you get your dog?

3) Has your dog been vaccinated? Against what diseases?

4) What brand of pet food do you feed your dog?

5) Is your dog’s appetite normal? How much does he eat?

6) How much water does your dog drink?

7) Is your dog urinating and defecating regularly? Does he ever have accidents inside?

8) Is your dog displaying any of the following symptoms:


9) Has your dog lost or gained weight recently?

10) Have you noticed any significant changes in your dog’s behavior?

11) Are you experiencing any behavior problems with your pet? (Chewing, jumping, barking, aggression, etc)

12) Have you traveled outside of the area with your dog?

13) Has your dog ever suffered a serious health issue? If so, what treatment did he receive?
