Choose a Vet Who Cares About Your Pet!

Lots of folks are picky about their vet, and for good reason. You don't want some insensitive clod messing around with your precious pooch, especially if he or she is in a fragile state due to illness or injury. It goes without saying that your vet should be a certified expert in the field of animal medicine. But it's also just as important to find a veterinarian who truly loves animals, and who will be sensitive to the needs of both you and your dog. If you feel unsure about your vet for any reason, it's worth investigating your options to find a new vet who you really like!

What should you look for when choosing a vet?

1. Someone who is understanding, yet impartial. There will be times in your pet's life where you'll have to make tough and costly decisions on his behalf. Your vet should be an understanding pillar of strength and support; someone who can empathise during such trying times, without pushing you into anything you're not ready for or comfortable with.

2. A vet who practices preventive medicine. The best veterinarians practice and encourage preventive medicine... routine checkups, treatments and follow-ups that can nip a small health problem in the bud before it becomes a big (and expensive) one down the road.

3. Someone who can put your dog at ease. A really good vet will have a calm, soothing demeanor, and a way with animals that is truly magical to see! Gentle hands, a comforting tone of voice... all of these things will help your pet feel calm and secure in your vet's care. Oh yes: and of course, your vet should have a way with humans, too.

4. An office full of employees who truly love animals. It's wonderful to bring your dog in for a vet checkup and be greeted with big smiles, belly rubs and a good scratch behind the ears (for your dog- not you, silly)! With repeated visits, your dog will grow to love the friendly folks at the vet's office, and the experience will become pleasant rather than stressful.

5. Someone who will listen. As with any doctor, your vet should approach the matter of your dog's health with open ears and an open mind. Each situation is unique, and new practices and procedures evolve every day. Maybe you've read about a treatment that your vet has yet to mention? You should feel comfortable approaching your doggie's doctor with ideas, questions and concerns.
