Patient History

To get the most out of your visit, take a moment to think about your pet’s medical history and current condition. If you have any concerns about your pet’s health, please notify the office prior to your appointment as this may change medical recommendations and procedures for that day.  

If Your Pet is Feeling Unwell?

If your pet happens to feel unwell at the time of your annual visit, understand that the veterinarian may decide to hold off on vaccines until your pet has recovered. If your pet seems sick or unwell at all prior to the exam, please notify our office. We may choose to move your appointment up sooner or have specific instructions for you based on the symptoms described.

Stool Sample

Bring a fresh stool sample (<24 hours if kept at room temperature or refrigerated)  so that your doctor can run a Fecal.

Fecals are important because they enable veterinarians to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms, whipworms, coccidia, and giardia. 


Bring a list of all medications that your pet is currently taking (including over-the-counter meds, supplements or anything else taken on a regular basis).  Please note the doses and frequency given.  Feel free to bring in the boxes/bottles/vials if easier.


For safety, please bring your pet in a closed cat carrier or your dog on a strong leash as appropriate

Fasting (for Senior Pets)

For senior pets (Dogs > 7 yrs old – Cats >10 yrs old) you may consider fasting your pet 8 hours prior to their appointment for possible labwork.  Water is OK.  Fasting is not essential, but it helps and it may save you a return trip to Wayland Animal Clinic.

Curbside Service

As of July 12, 2021, Wayland Animal Clinic is transitioning away from our 100% curbside service approach and will begin seeing patients and clients inside the building for most visits and exams. Technician appointments, surgeries, and other drop-off procedures will mostly remain curbside for a time to allow for continued social distancing in our facility.  We appreciate your patience as we continue to navigate this pandemic.

We ask that our clients:

  • Call Upon Arrival (508) 653-1096
  • A member of our team will provide you with instructions on how/when to enter the building
  • All clients must continue to wear a mask


  • You are experiencing a cough, fever, or chills.
  • You have tested positive for COVID-19, or if you (or anyone you live with) has a COVID-19 test pending.
  • You have traveled anywhere by plane in the last 14 days.

We will continue to monitor expert guidance, community COVID numbers, and variant concerns, and will continue to adapt our operations as appropriate.

No Show / Cancellation Policy

All clients are required to give at least 24 hours advanced notice when cancelling any appointment. No Show / Late Cancellations will be charged $20 for technician appointments and $40 for veterinary appointments. See More Details
