What to Expect

TLC Veterinary Clinic – delivered with courtesy and respect!

As a new client of our vet clinic in La Junta, you can expect our full attention to your pet’s needs.

We ask that you arrive 10 minutes early to allow sufficient time to fill out the new client and patient forms or you can access and print our new client and new patient forms and bring them with you to your visit. Visit our Forms page for a complete list. Also, please bring any previous adoption or medical records with you. We will need this information to get an accurate medical history which will help in making the correct diagnosis and the best treatment plan for your pet. When you do visit the clinic, please bring your pet in a carrier or on a leash. This will help to prevent any unwanted incidents with other animals in the hospital.

When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted warmly, and we’ll usher you into an examination room as quickly as possible after checking in your pet.

In most cases, one of our veterinary technicians will start by asking about your pet’s medical history, current condition and the reason for your visit, gathering data for the doctor.

Dr. Dale Davis will then examine your pet, ask you further questions and may recommend diagnostic tests if needed. Once the tests have been run, which can usually be done in the practice, Dr. Davis will discuss a possible diagnosis and treatment plan if warranted.

This is a great time to ask questions. We want to make sure you’re completely comfortable with the information we’re providing.

Our front desk staff will process your payment and schedule any needed follow-up appointments.

Please note: Our goal is to see all our clients and patients on time, and although we have contingencies for emergencies, there will be times where the unexpected will create delays. We will ensure these are minimized as much as possible.

We are excited to meet you and your furry family members!

Payment Policy: Full payment is expected at the time of service. We accept cash, check, Debit, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and Care Credit.
