How To Identify The Right Veterinary Facility for Your Dog

by Jane Moreno 06 May 2021 0 Comments

Just as humans need to have a regular physician in case of illness, so too a dog needs to have a qualified vet to take care of him in case anything goes wrong.  How to find the right veterinarian for your dog requires a bit of research and careful consideration.

There are two ways in which you can find the right vet.  First, ask neighbors or friends who are dog owners to give you a recommendation; Second, talk to pet groomers in your area to find out who they use.

If you do check online, make a list of the vets in your area and call to make an appointment in order to determine the following:  

1. Are you greeted in a kind and professional manner by the staff?

2. Are the waiting rooms and general surroundings clean?

3. Do you find the staff to be qualified and knowledgeable?

4. When you called to make the appointment to visit, were they genuinely courteous?

5. Do they have parking on location?

6. How many technicians and support staff do they have?

7. How many vets are assigned to the clinic?

8. Does the area where dogs are kept clean and relatively conducive to keeping sick dogs comfortable?

9. How much does it cost for their services, i.e., vaccinations, treatment, etc.

10. Do they perform emergency services?

11. Obtain the names of the vets so that you can check their credentials online or through the American Veterinary Medical Association.

12. Do you feel comfortable at this facility?

13. Has the vet answered all of your immediate questions?

14. Do they have an emergency telephone number; are they on call and what are their hours?

15. Ask the vet if you can observe him with a patient so that you can ascertain how he handles and interacts with the dog.

There is another factor that you should know about when dealing with a vet.  Oftentimes, and depending upon the vet, they may advise you to buy certain dog food at their premises; whether it’s due to a condition your pet is experiencing, or for some other reason.  

It should be noted that the cost is quite high.  If the vet indeed tells you to use a particular brand, do not buy it from him but go to your local pet store or a club outlet where you can purchase the food in bulk.  Dog food is quite expensive and sometimes vets prescribe a certain food because they are getting a percentage of the sale. 

While we, as humans, can change doctors if we do not care for the way they practice medicine, dogs can’t tell us if they are not being treated well.  Finding the right veterinarian is not only important for you, but for your dog as well.
