Communicating with the Veterinarian
Whether your pet’s veterinary visit is a regulatory wellness exam or is meant to treat a serious illness, your communication with the veterinarian is critical. You know your pet better than anyone else and spend adequate time with your pet, enabling you to verify abnormal behavior. During your veterinary visit, conveying any irregularities to the vet will allow them to create a diagnostic method that will best determine what is ailing your pet.
Prior to your pet’s veterinary appointment, you can create a list of any questions about pet behavior, nutrition, or changes in pet demeanor. The veterinarian is a trained expert in pet care and will be able to answer your questions during your visit. Also, if you are new to pet ownership, be sure and inquire about the grooming, nutritional, and seasonal needs of your particular breed or species of pet. A vet can inform you of changes in local climate that will affect your pet, as well as inform you about how to adapt to these changes. They can also offer advice about how to properly care for your particular species or breed of pet.
Establishing open communication with your veterinarian allows you to better understand your pet and their needs and grants your veterinarian essential insight into your pet’s behavior and potential illness.
