8 things you should consider when choosing a veterinarian

  1. Are the clinic's office hours compatible with your schedule?
  2. How do the veterinarians and staff treat you and your pet?
  3. Are the clinic's payment options/plans acceptable to you?
  4. If your pet is insured, does the clinic accept your insurance plan?
  5. How are after-hours emergencies handled?
  6. How do they handle referrals to specialists, if that's necessary?
  7. If you have a non-traditional pet, does the veterinarian have experience with that species of pet?
  8. A referral from a trusted friend or family member is helpful.
