Having a good relationship with your pet’s veterinarian is critical to your pet’s long term health and wellness. By asking questions you can gain insight into whether or not your pet’s behavior is normal or something you should look deeper into. Asking questions also shows you are a vested, caring pet guardian who wants the best for their pet.
While most good Vets are more than willing to address your concerns, vets are generally very busy people and so to be respectful of their time, consider coming to your next vet appointment with your questions prepared. One idea is to keep a separate journal of questions you would like to ask your vet. That way when you think of something, you can write it down and you won’t be struggling to remember the next time you are in the Vet’s office. You could also use the notes feature on your Smartphone or tablet device to keep a running list of questions.
