How to Choose a Vet: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 117

How to Choose a VetBesides yourself, a vet is the most important person in a dog’s life, his or her surrogate parent and second best friend. Because going to the vet is never a fun walk in the dog park picking the perfect vet is crucial. It is important to find a vet that both you and your dog will feel comfortable with, can talk to and trust. Sniffing around for the best possible care for your pets will help your pet live a long, healthy and happy life and give you a piece of mind. Here are few tips on choosing the right vet:

1. Word of Mouth. Nothing beats a personal recommendation so ask someone you trust for their vet suggestions.

2. Schedule a Visit. Call to make an appointment for a visit to meet the veterinarian and the staff. 
3. Visit the Vet Office to Sniff Around. Visit the facility, checking for cleanliness, a relaxed professional atmosphere and staff members who are ready to answer your questions and give you a tour. 
4. Ask About Vet Credentials. Find out whether the veterinarian belongs to professional organizations, is affiliated with local humane societies and emergency clinics and provides referral services when needed. 
5. Give Vet a Pop Quiz. Ask questions about your pet’s care, paying close attention to the answers. These responses are key to making certain you have the right person for the job. 
6. Tour Pet Care and Kennel Areas. Request to visit the animal care wards and kennel areas; these should be squeaky clean, odor-free, warm, dry and comfortable at all times – no exceptions! 
7. Familiar Face Calms an Anxious Dog. Choose a veterinary clinic that allows you to see the same doctor during each visit will calm an anxious dog. This will help your vet become familiar with you and your pet, and vice versa. 
8. Schedule Tour for Fido. Make an appointment to take your pet for a get-acquainted visit. Observe how the veterinarian and staff interact with you and your pet.
