Unhappy Veterinarian Protocol?

So I'm picking Pepper up in 11 days (!!) and I just realized; although I know a vet that is recommended for hedgehogs, I have been assuming that you could just call them, make an appointment, and then bring your hedgehog in. However, I realized that it might be a little more complicated than this. I'm a high-school student with no experience with the medical care system (Three cheers for parents!) so I'm wondering; do you have to register with the vet ahead of time? Are there forms you have to fill out? Should I contact the vet now and establish that I'm going to be bringing my pet to her? The vet is Connie Orcutt of Angell Animal Medical Center. Thanks for any help you can give!

(Also, just to make sure; I should bring her in for a wellness check about two weeks after I get her, right?)

Default Re: Veterinarian Protocol?

When I brought my girls to the vet for the first time, I just called a few days earlier and register them quickly over the phone. Then on the appointment's day the vet's assistant had a few questions to fill their forms, like what food were they eating, what kind of bedding did I have in their cages, how long have I had them for, etc.

It's recommended to wait a couple of weeks before you take new hedgie to the vet, so you can get to know his habits a little better. Unless of course you're concerned about something, then take him sooner.
