Scheduling an Appointment

You may contact Dr Warford via phone (877.669.8706) or email with any questions, to request an estimate, or to schedule an appointment. Often, due to logistics, it is easiest to respond to inquiries faster if received via email. Please feel free to email us directly at hello@dcmetrovet.com. Please be as detailed as possible as to your location, your requested appointment date/time and your pet's needs or concerns.

Leaving a Message
It is often difficult to answer the phone due to the large amount of driving, but all messages are checked regularly. Please be as detailed as possible in your message about the services you need, your location, and your preferred appt dates/times. Messages left at either location will be answered within 24 hours excluding Weekends and Holidays. Please note if you would prefer to be contacted via phone or email. 

Flexible Scheduling
Same day appointments are offered but generally not available due to logistics. Often clients have scheduled their appointments well in advance, and in order to provide the optimal courtesy, Dr Warford can not disrupt the care of patients who have waited until their scheduled appointment time.  

Emergency Services
Feel free to contact Dr Warford to inquire about scheduling same day appointments, but if you feel your pet needs urgent care, please go immediately to a veterinary hospital near you. If it is after business hours, go to your nearest emergency clinic. Do NOT wait for us to return your call as it might be the following business day before Dr. Warford even receives your message and is able to call you back. Please do NOT leave a message about a pet requiring urgent care as we DO NOT provide emergency services. Call or go to your nearest emergency facility or veterinary hospital if you have an immediate concern.

Preparing for Your Appointment

Nervous Pets
Please have your pets confined in a room so that they are easily accessible, especially if they tend to hide from strangers. Your best option may be a bathroom or a room without furniture the pet can get underneath.

Aggressive Pets
If your pet has a history of being aggressive with the veterinarian or strangers, please let Dr Warford know prior to the appointment. Anxiety & fear are common issues even with home visits, and can lead to aggressive behavior such as growling, scratching, and biting. Advance notice can allow for planning for minimal stress and maximum safety at the time of the appointment.

Medical Records
Please have any previous medical records available for review, especially if Dr. Warford is following up on a previously diagnosed problem, even if you are not sure it is relevant. Better service can be provided with access to a detailed medical history. Dr Warford is happy to work with other veterinarians for the optimal care of your pet.

Appointment Time
Please allow up to an hour for the appointment. Dr Warford strives to be time-efficient without rushing any part of the appointment. This allows time for paperwork, services, discussions, and payment.
