Seventy First Animal Hospital has been helping the Fayetteville, NC community treat their pets since 1996. We want a stress-free experience for your pet, and implement treats, pheromones, belly rubs and lots of praise to make the pets as comfortable as possible.
If your pet is new to us:
- Please down load and fill out the New Patient Registration Form and the Inpatient/Outpatient Admission Form.
- Bring these and any vaccine history with you, please arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment so you can be in the exam room and seen at your scheduled time.
- Please bring a fresh stool sample with you, in case it is needed, if not needed we will gladly dispose of it for you.
- Please have your cat in a carrier and your dog on a leash. Please keep your dog close to you as there will likely be other animals in the waiting room.
- If you are coming in for a professional groom, please bring a picture to help Crystal understand what you would like.
All the exams start with our wonderful front desk team. They will greet you as you walk in the door, get your information and go over an estimated treatment plan then walk you into an examination room. A veterinary assistant will get a more detailed history, collect samples like fecal, blood and ear cytology. The veterinarian will then come in and preform a nose to tail examination on your pet then discuss any concerns and findings with you including any recommendations. We will formulate a new treatment plan and discuss it with you in the room. Depending on your pet’s condition, we may need to keep your pet for a few hours to perform diagnostics or, if needed, sedate for a procedure. If your pet needs any medications like heartworm prevention, flea/tick prevention or antibiotics, our vet assistants will fill the medications in our pharmacy. Our front desk team will go over the charges, ask if you have any questions and schedule any upcoming recommended appointments. Our veterinarians want you to be as informed as possible, they may send home handouts with more information on conditions your veterinarian discussed with you. We will call you with lab work results in a few days.
If your pet is boarding, you can bring food in a sealed container, medications in their labeled bottles and blankets or beds. You can learn more about boarding here.If you request a bath, our kennel team usually does the bath the day of departure so your pet can go home smelling fresh and clean, pick up is after 2 pm if you would like the bath done the day of departure. You can print and fill out the Boarding Admission Form and the Bath Service Request Form to make check in quicker.

Most surgery patients will need to be admitted by 8:00 am unless instructed otherwise by their veterinarian. Our team will confirm the procedure(s) being done, go over the treatment plan, have you fill out the Surgery/Anesthesia Form and make sure we have good phone numbers where we can reach you during the day. We typically discharge our surgery patients after 6 pm, one of our team members will call you after your pet is awake to give you an exact time and update you on how your pet did. This allows the doctor time to discuss any further pertinent details about the procedure that was performed and answer any questions you may have.
