How To Find The Right Veterinarian For Your Pet

One of the most important decisions that you will make in your pet’s lifetime is who you will trust to take care of your pet’s health. It is a decision that you will not make easily, and one that is made more difficult by the high number of veterinarian options you have. How do you know which one is right for you and your pet? While it is important to find a veterinarian when your pet is very young, or new to your care, it is also important to choose a veterinarian that you trust with your pet’s wellbeing.

Here are some things to consider when looking for the right veterinarian for you and your pet:

  1. How much experience does the vet have caring for animals? How much training have they had? Do they seem very knowledgeable about issues that pertain to your specific kind or breed of animal? How long have they been practicing in your city or town? Do they have a good reputation?
  2. What services do they offer? Do they have pet boarding services in case you need to go out of town without your pet so that they can stay somewhere that is familiar to them? Do they perform surgeries on site? Do they spay or neuter in office? Can you have blood work or fecal analysis done on site?
  3. Is your veterinarian genuinely concerned about your pet’s overall health? Are they proactive when it comes to vaccinations, shots, and preventative medications for heart health, fleas and ticks? Can you get the medications you need for your pet directly from your veterinarian?
  4. Are you happy with the distance between your home and your vet’s office location? Does your veterinarian offer payment options that can accommodate you, especially in the event of a medical emergency? Are you happy with their hours of operation?
