Building a partnership with your veterinarian 98682:
Finding the right veterinarian for your pet and your family is an important part of being a responsible pet owner. A good veterinarian can help you make important decisions regarding the care of your pet. Here are some guidelines for responsible pet ownership that are recommended by the AVMF, the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.
Carefully choose pets that are right for your home and lifestyle. Commit to the relationship for the life of your pet. Realize that pet ownership requires an investment of time and money. Provide exercise and mental stimulation appropriate for the pet’s age, breed, and health condition.
Be sure that your pets have proper identification. Prevent pets from negatively impacting other people, other animals, and the environment.
Establish and maintain a good veterinarian-client relationship. Provide preventive and therapeutic health care throughout the life of your pet in consultation with, and as recommended by your veterinarian. Control your pets’ reproduction through spaying and neutering, containment, or managed breeding.
Recognize declines in your pet’s quality of life, and make decisions together with your veterinarian regarding good end-of-life care, whether that’s palliative care, hospice or euthanasia.
The benefits of pet ownership come with responsibilities. At Claus Paws Animal Hospital it is our mission to partner with pet owners to empower them to keep their commitment to their pets.
