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, caretakers 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?
- Keep your questions ready, if possible a copy of the form you filled in.
- 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)
- Sit calmly with your pet about 20 minutes before your session is to begin. (it helps the vet to assess a calm patient)
- 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.
