Working with New Clients

As a new client of Confederate Woods Veterinary Hospital, you may have some questions before your first visit with us.

Our staff will review your pet’s information and previous medical records. Once checked in, you can access our free Wi-fi or watch television on our large flat screen monitors in our spacious and comfortable waiting area.

At the conclusion of your appointment, we can answer your questions and refill your pet’s preventative medicine or other prescriptions recommend by the doctor. For your convenience, our office accepts cash, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Amex, Care Credit, and Scratchpay.
