Criteria to choose a vet

by TM Maria Be a king in your own kingdom

There are many criteria to distinguish two veterinarians. First take into account the distance. If you have to travel 50 km to get to your vet this may not be the most convenient. So, select the clinics closest to you before starting the comparisons.

You can then rely on word of mouth. Do not listen to all the "sayings," but the advice of pet owners often reflects the quality of a clinic. You can see for yourself the welcome to customers by going directly to the clinics. Find out about the rates and observe the facilities. Rates are free, so they can vary significantly between two veterinarians. Some will charge more for drugs, others for consultations. Try to see what is best for you.

Also inquire about emergencies. Some vets do night and weekend guards. If this is not the case, you will be redirected to another clinic that may be further away from you.

If you own new pets, do some research before choosing your veterinarian? Veterinarians have a basic superficial training. These present particular pathologies that will be better diagnosed and treated by a specialized veterinarian.

Cabinet, clinic or veterinary hospital center?

A veterinary clinic has a number of equipment (radiology, hospital rooms to separate contagious animals ...) and veterinary assistants. Assistants help with the restraint and care of animals. They also take care of welcoming customers.

A veterinary practice does not necessarily have all this equipment. The veterinarian is often alone and has no assistant. His means are therefore more limited and he is obliged to redirect clients to a clinic if necessary.

The big difference between a veterinary clinic and a hospital center lies in the surveillance of hospitalized animals. A veterinary hospital provides regular monitoring of hospitalized animals, even at night and on weekends. These structures are generally better equipped than clinics and have a larger and specialized staff. The consultations will generally be more expensive but more specific to the pathology of your animal.
