We know you have a choice when it comes to who will take care of your pet’s health. That’s why at Complete Pet Care, we want you to have all the information you need before you make such an important decision. Here are just a few things to look for when choosing an animal hospital:
A good veterinarian will keep you informed at every step of the way in your pet’s health journey, from preventive care to diagnostics to treatments. Not knowing what will happen when you bring your pet in for an appointment can be scary. That’s why you deserve a veterinarian who will keep you in mind. You and your pet’s vet should be a team working to keep your pet as happy and healthy as possible.
Whether your schedule necessitates an evening or weekend appointment for your pet’s wellness visit, or something unexpected happens outside traditional business hours, you want a vet who’ll be there for you and your pet when you need them most. Look for evening and weekend hours and ask if the veterinarian leaves appointment times open for emergencies. At Complete Pet Care, our experienced veterinarians are also on call 24 hours a day if your pet needs care that can’t wait.
Veterinary technology is changing and advancing quickly – in some ways more quickly than human medicine! Look for a veterinarian who is comfortable with and has access to the latest advancements so your pet can take advantage of cutting-edge technology. These advancements are designed to make diagnostics, treatments and recovery simpler and less painful so your pet’s quality of life and longevity are improved.
Does your pet seem under the weather, but you’re not sure if an appointment is needed? Are you having trouble remembering how often your pet should be seen when they’re healthy? Here’s a handy guide to know when your pet should see a vet.
Sometimes your pet will be in non-emergent pain or discomfort, requiring a visit to the vet within a day or two.
If your pet isn’t feeling well but is otherwise alert, eating and drinking normally and urinating, call for an appointment as soon as you notice the symptoms. Talk to our caring, qualified customer service representatives and arrange to bring your pet in at a time that works well for you. They’ll be able to help you determine how soon your pet should be seen and what, if anything, you can do to keep your pet comfortable in the meantime.
Though we don’t like to think about our pets needing emergency treatment, knowing what constitutes an emergency and knowing you have a veterinary team in your corner if you need it can go a long way to helping you and your pet feel better as soon as possible. If you notice any of the following in your pet, call your veterinarian immediately:
