Dr. Basko is available for veterinary consultations for preventative care, diet formulation, and treatment plans for illnesses your pet(s) may be experiencing. He will examine and study your pets’ health records, laboratory tests and/or x-rays, and provide you with a treatment plan specifically designed for their needs.

As Dr. Basko’s in-person clinic appointments are often booked some time in advance, it is required for all new clients to first have a phone consultation with Dr. Basko so that we can ensure that your pet is receiving care right away.

Are you interested in becoming a patient of Dr. Basko?

Here’s what we’ll need from you prior to scheduling a consultation.

  1. Please fill out and submit our consultation form located on our consultation page. Be sure to include your current vet’s phone number so we can request prior veterinary records.
  2. Then, please take a few digital photos of your pet so Dr. Basko can assess their overall physical condition. Please take at least one shot of your pet overall, a close-up of the face, and then photograph any areas where there may be bumps, lumps, rashes, or redness. A picture of your pet’s tongue is also very helpful. Iphone photos are okay, and photos can be emailed to: info (at) drbasko (dot) com

Once we have all of the above info, we’ll call you to schedule a time for your phone consultation.
