images.jpegNo disrespect to dogs but finding a good vet for your cat is more challenging than finding one for a dog. Depending on who you speak to, some unqualified vets will treat your cat like a smaller dog. Somewhere out there is the world's worst veterinary for cats, make sure he/she isn't who you depend on to treat your cat.

Here's a few tips that will help you find the best vet for your cat:

  • Much like you would interview a new employee or house keeper, make sure you set up some "face time" to get acquainted with your vet. If you get a bad vibe, move on.
  • Work by referral whenever possible. If you're getting your cat from a breeder or cat rescue program, ask them who the best veterinary is in your area. There are literally thousands of cat clubs in the world, get a hold of an administrator and get their advice on where you should be taking your cat. Most of these clubs are just a click away so it shouldn't be hard to Google them.
  • Consider the services that are important to you. Is it important that you are able to drop your cat off? Do you require weekend appointments and are they available to accept you based upon your work hours? This is a biggy. Are they available for emergency services? The last thing you want to do is to be flipping through the yellow pages in the event of an emergency.
  • Kind of an expansion of the last point but does your vet offer grooming services? This may be important to you depending on the breed of your cat.
  • Make sure you are comfortable with their billing policies and rates. There's no point in visiting a vet if they're charging three times the regular rate for the same service.
  • Tomorrow, we'll talk about what is typically performed at a regular visit to the veterinary.
