Finding a Vet For Your New Christmas Pet

Congratulations on getting a new Christmas pet!  We know you are delighted to have a new member in the family.  As a medical care provider, we know that finding a veterinarian is one of the most important decisions you will make regarding your pet.  Don’t wait until your pet is sick to find a veterinary hospital.  Instead, choose a veterinarian that can meet your needs and partner with you to give your pet the best life and care possible.  We can also help answer questions about behavior and help you manage your pet better so that you and your new Christmas pet will enjoy a long, healthy relationship.

What to Look For When Choosing a Veterinarian

Is the animal hospital clean, comfortable and organized?

Are appointments necessary?

Are they well staffed?

Are dog and cat cages separated?

Does the staff communicate well and are they knowledgeable and skilled?

Do they have the right equipment to perform diagnostics and other surgery in-house?

Are they convenient?

How to Be a Good Client

Encourage a good relationship with your pet’s doctor by following a few simple tips.

See your vet regularly for wellness exams and preventative care.

Become familiar with your pet and bring them in at the first sign of illness.  Pets often mask when they are sick and can become deathly ill quickly.

Call ahead in an emergency so the staff can be prepared.
