Best Practices for Pet Care

Consult a vet early – this means do not let a condition become chronic (long standing) before you call a doctor. It is easier on your pocket and your pets system when illnesses and injuries are dealt with immediately. Now, we’re not trying to make hypochondriacs of you! But when dealing with a non verbal patient it is better to seek help early.

Is your new pet recently adopted? Changes in environment, care takers and food can make a dog or cat reject food until it settles in. If you notice a persistent problem, especially a reduced intake of water, do not wait, have the problem resolved before it becomes serious.

How to Prepare for your Online Consult

  1. Keep your questions ready, if possible a copy of the form you filled in.
  2. Have your pet with you, preferably in a closed and quiet room. (if this is not possible please keep your pet on a leash near you so they cannot walk away during the consult)
  3. Sit calmly with your pet about 20 minutes before your session is to begin (it helps the vet to assess a calm patient)
  4. Do not handle your pet excessively during the consult, it is best to let the Dr see a patient’s behaviour when it is not distracted.
