What to ExpectSierra Veterinary Specialists Kennels

Welcome to Sierra Veterinary Specialists! Our focus is on working with your pet’s veterinarian to provide excellent specialty veterinary care. We want your experience with us to be positive from start to finish, and here is what you can expect during your stay with us.

Scheduling Your Appointment

Sierra Veterinary Specialists accepts patients by referral from other veterinary practices. Once we receive the referral from your veterinarian, we can schedule your appointment.

To schedule your appointment, please contact us at 775 358-8555. If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please notify us at least 24 hours prior.

Unless directed by your veterinarian, please do not give your pet food 12 hours prior to your appointment at our office. However, you may provide your pet with any prescribed medication, and be sure to bring all medications with you.

Your Visit

Your initial visit at Sierra Veterinary Specialists will take approximately 60 minutes. Upon arriving at our office, please check in at our registration desk. A member of our specialty team will bring you to an exam room where we will record your pet’s vital signs. Our Board-certified veterinary specialist will then meet with you and provide your pet with a thorough exam before giving you a detailed assessment and recommending a treatment plan.

Paying for Treatment

After your pet is examined by our veterinary specialist, we will provide you with an estimated cost for treatment, including any tests, surgery, anesthesia and hospitalization. Depending on the extent of treatment, we may require a 50 percent deposit.

At the time your pet is discharged from our care, we will collect the remaining balance of your treatment cost. We accept local personal checks, as well as MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover card. We also offer the Care Credit payment plan.
