What is a technician(tech) appointment?
At the Cornell Road Veterinary Clinic we like to keep costs at a minimum. We offer this service as a courtesy to our clients so that you do not have to pay an office call fee every time you bring your pet into our clinic. A tech appointment is appointment time that has been set aside for a technician to administer vaccines, trim nails, express anal glands etc.
How long will this appointment take?
We know that your time is very valuable.
Generally speaking these appointments are very quick. It can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes depending on what is being done.
Why is my pet taken "into the back"?
We do not reserve room time for these appointments. We are able to wave our office call fee because these appointments are not taking up room space. These appointments are meant to be quick for your convenience. Because of this we generally run your pet into the back administer treatment and bring them right back to you.
What if I want to be with my pet?
Please let the receptionist know when you make your appointment that you would prefer to be with your pet. Since this will take up appointment room space there will be an additional in-room charge. Due to the the fact that pets can become stressed in a veterinary environment, your pet will need to be held by one of our staff to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
