Choosing the Right Vet

One of the most important things an individual can do to help ensure their pet's health is to provide high-quality, regular, long term veterinary care. To select the right veterinarian, pet guardians should ask friends, family and co-workers for referrals. Guardians should focus on finding a veterinarian who whom they are comfortable, a veterinarian who will go the extra mile. People who love their own pets should be happy to offer referrals on compassionate and informative veterinarians. Guardians should feel comfortable not only with the veterinarian, but also with the office staff.

Make sure you feel comfortable with the doctor and the office staff. Are they people you can talk to? Do they take the time to discuss cost as well as procedures?

Also ask about:

  • Location
  • Hours
  • Pet Boarding
  • Microchip ID Services
  • Dental Care
  • Regular Health Exams
  • Grooming
  • Dietary Counseling
  • Surgery
