The Princeton Veterinary Hospital Approach

At Princeton Veterinary Hospital, we strive to treat each one of our clients like family. You care so much about your four-legged family member’s health and well-being. Our annual examinations and vaccine and prevention recommendations are built around protecting that. We honor your relationship with your pets by working with you to design a plan to keep your pets happy and healthy. By doing so, we hope to gain your trust and become a valued part of your pet’s health care team for life.

What to Expect

As a walk-in clinic, it can be difficult to know what to expect on any particular day! While we are open from 7:00am-6:00pm on weekdays and from 7:00am-noon on Saturdays, we ask that you arrive and sign in to see the veterinarian between 8:00am-11:00am, or between 1:00pm-5:00pm. This helps us make sure that we can give each patient and client the time, attention, and care they need, while still respecting everyone’s time.

Of course, if you do not need to see a veterinarian – picking up medicines, nail trims, dropping a pet off, or a procedure that needs a technician – you are welcome to come in any time during our regular hours. We do schedule appointments for surgeries, dental cleanings, boarding, and farm calls.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking that everyone inside the building please wear a mask and respect social distancing. You may choose to wait in our comfortable and spacious waiting rooms, or you may wait outside. Just leave your cell phone number with our receptionists so we can easily find you when it is your turn!

When you arrive, please wear your mask to come inside the building. Check in with our receptionists and let them know your name, your pet’s name, and what you need today. They’ll get you checked in, let you know if we need anything updated in your account, and ask you to take a seat to wait for our veterinarians to be ready to see your pet. You may want to download our New Patient Registration form and fill it out before your visit to make things go a little more quickly.

One of our Registered Veterinary Technicians or Veterinary Assistants will bring you and your pet into an exam room where they will ask some questions about your pet’s history and begin a physical examination. Once they have the preliminary information, they’ll step out of the room to get one of our veterinarians.

When you see the veterinarian, they will have more questions for you and do a physical examination on your pet. We know how much you care about your four-legged family member’s health and well-being. Our annual examinations, vaccines, and prevention recommendations are built around protecting your relationship with your pets. We honor that relationship by working with you to design plans for disease prevention, diagnostics, and treatments when needed that will help your pet and work with your budget. Our goal is to gain your trust and become a valued part of your pet’s health care team for life. 

When everything is finished, the veterinarian will discuss any test results and treatment plans with you. Our Veterinary Technicians or Assistants will check you out right in the exam room, give you any medicines your pet needs, and you’ll be on your way!
