Choosing your veterinarian is no different than choosing your own doctor. Choose a vet with experience, and one who does not rush you out of the office but practices great “bed side” manner. Make sure they’re patient, professional, and kind. They are different types of vets ranging from traditional to integrated to holistic. Remember that you can always get a second – or third – opinion.  There are many experts in their fields providing critical information and assistance for special cases.  In addition, vets have different specialties and board certifications.  For example, there are orthopedic surgeons, optomologists, dentists and other specialists who have completed 4 years of vet school but also up to 6 additional years of training at specialty schools in order to become experts.
