10 Tips for Choosing a Vet for Your Pet


10. Choose a vet with your taste in medicine

Not all vets practice western medicine and that could be a good thing if you are interested in someone who will work with herbs and natural medicine to keep your pet healthy. Decide ahead of time if you want a holistic veterinarian who will use alternative medicine or an allopathic vet who uses western medicine.

You may also find someone who combines the two methods, depending on the situation. It’s a big deal to find the right veterinarian for your animals. Get a tour of the vet clinic and make sure to ask plenty of questions so you can make the right decision. It can help to see more than one vet and later decide which you prefer.
