Veterinarians

Choosing the right Veterinarian for your pet is just as important as selecting the right doctor for your own medical needs.  It is one of the most important personal decisions you’ll make as a pet parent.

If you just adopted a furry family member, make an appointment with a local veterinarian within a few days, or at the most, two weeks from the day of adoption.  Establishing a trusting relationship early on will ease the stress of trying to find one for your family member's inoculations or if they become ill.

If you’re new to the area, or a new pet parent, call and make an appointment for a tour.  Ask questions and express your needs and concerns. Effective communication is the most important key to a successful Vet-client relationship. Your pet doesn't have a voice and you understand their habits and moods better than anyone. Establishing a positive rapport will ensure a positive experience for your pet and you! A great Vet will be more than happy to talk to you and answer any questions. There is no such thing as a foolish question when it comes to the well being of your pet.

GUIDELINES TO HELP MAKE YOUR DECISION A BIT EASIER

  1. First, arrange an appointment without your pet to speak with the Veterinarian.
  2. Get an overall feel of the facility and staff members.
  3. Is the facility clean with the newest diagnostic medical equipment?
  4. Are they passionate?
  5. Do you feel at ease talking with the Veterinarian?
  6. Are their office hours compatible with yours?
  7. Are weekend appointments available?
  8. Do they accept your pet insurance?
  9. How do they handle daytime or after-hours emergencies?
  10. Is the Vet on-call 24/7?
  11. Do they specialize in certain diseases or injuries?
  12. What specific needs or concerns do you have?
  13. Do they have privileges at the local animal hospital?
