Only Your Pet Doctor Knows Best

A pet doctor is your pet’s best bet for a healthy, pain-free life. Pet behavior expert Steve Dale is alarmed at the drop in visits our pets are making to their veterinarian.  While there are so many products that were once available only through veterinarians, and are now available in retail stores and online, there is no replacing the expert advice and hands on approach you get through regular exams from your veterinarian.

Steve gets advice from Dr. Tony Rumschlag about the importance of talking with your veterinarian about flea infestations, dog vaccinations, and pain that our aging pets are facing.  Dr. Robin Downing tells us why pain management is so important for healthy golden years for our pets that an online vet cannot properly address without a hands-on examination.

Having an actual relationship with your vet is so important.  The other thing is communicating honestly with the doctor.  I spent a couple of summers in my youth working at vet clinics.  Folks would claim their pet was fine just yesterday when the animal had obviously been ill for a while.  I remember one of the vets telling me after a particularly frustrating situation that if he was dumb enough to believe that story, he wouldn't be smart enough to treat the animal.

I must say that I enjot trips to the vet (not my pups though! LOL!).  I am a worrier by nature, so it's my time to ask my vet all sorts of questions about bumps, nodes, and skin tabs I've noticed since our last visit :)
