Finding a veterinarian is relatively easy, especially if you're able to get recommendations from friends and relatives. However, finding the right veterinarian for you and your pet is what's really important. Here are some good ways to make that happen:
When choosing your family's veterinarian, use the same care and criteria that you would in selecting a physician or dentist. Think about what is important to you. Location, office hours, payment options, and the range of medical services provided are all important considerations. For many pet owners the most important factor is the friendliness and commitment of doctors and staff. Your goal should be to find the veterinarian who you believe can best meet your pet's medical needs and with whom you feel comfortable establishing a long-term relationship.
