Questions & Answers

Questions About Choosing  

a Veterinarian


Dear Scarlet..How important is it to choose the right veterinarian for me and my pup?

It is very important to choose the right

veterinarian. You should choose a vet that you are comfortable with and able to easily ask questions.  Author Margaret Bonham says it best, " your dog can't tell you how he feels or what's wrong, so good communication between you and your vet is essential."

What criteria should I use?

Here are some of the criteria you should consider: 

  • References. What vets do your dog-owning friends and neighbors recommend? Why? Ask your friend's about their vet's strengths and weaknesses. Also ask your trainer and breeder who they recommend and why.
  • Visit several veterinarians, interview the staff, and review the friendliness and helpfulness of the office and the vet.  Is the office staff cranky and rude? Does the vet have a gentle and caring manner?
  • Communication ability of the vet. Is your vet able to answer your questions in a clear and polite manner. Does the vet give clear instructions?  
  • Cost. What is the cost for vaccinations, and office visits? Do they offer a multipet discount? Are the prices in line with other vets that you are considering?
  • Breed familarity. Is your vet familiar with health conditions common to your breed.?
  • Office cleanliness.Is the vet's office clean and sanitary?
  • Office location. Is it convenient? 
  • Hours and services. Are the hours convenient? Do they offer after hour or emergency services? Is there a vet on call that has a pager should an emergency arise.

"The great pleasure of the dog is that you make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself, too."
