What to Expect

Experience compassionate care at our pet hospital. Expert veterinarians, facilities, and personalized attention ensure your pet’s well-being.

Welcome to Cranston Animal Hospital!

When you arrive at our clinic, you will be greeted by one of our friendly receptionists. They will check your address and phone information and confirm your appointment time and reason for your visit.

Then, one of our technicians or assistants will escort you and your pet to an examination room, take a brief history of how your pet is doing, and check their temperature and weight. If your pet is due for any testing (heartworm, bloodwork, etc.), they will take them to our treatment room to collect those samples. The technician or assistant will review your pet’s history with one of our veterinarians.

The veterinarian will meet you in the exam room to examine your pet and ask/answer any further questions. At that point, we will make any diagnostic or treatment recommendations or update any vaccinations. If we need further diagnostics, we may perform them at that time, or we will escort you back to the reception area to collect any medications and payment.

Pets must have a scheduled appointment before coming to our hospital. This allows us to have sufficient time with each client and patient. If you arrive without an appointment, we will make every attempt to schedule an appointment for you at our earliest opportunity. We recognize that our clients have busy lives, and we strive to keep our appointments on time.
