Is Your Dog Itchy?
There are a few questions you should be ready to answer when you bring your dog into the hospital for an examination.
Preparing for dog's veterinarian visit
Help our staff with valuable information
Because your pet cannot speak, ou staff relies on you to provide information that will help us rule out possible causes of skin diseases and determine an accurate diagnosis.
Whether you're seeing a new veterinarian for the first time or your long-time veterinarian, make sure you have the answers to the questions he or she is most likely to ask.
Exercise and nutrition
What questions do you have for our staff?
Write your questions down before you go, so you can refer to them during your visit.
Talk to your veterinarian about costs
Sometimes pet owners and veterinarians feel awkward talking about money. If you are concerned about budget, be open with our staff about your financial situation. Don't be embarrassed to ask about costs or to ask for an estimate. You can also talk to our staff about pet insurance.
