How to choose the best Vancouver veterinarians for your family:
When choosing a veterinarian to care for your pets, there are a number of factors to consider. There are many Vancouver veterinarians to select from, and it can be hard to know where to start.
For starters, ask your friends, relatives, neighbors, and local shelters to recommend a veterinarian. Going with word of mouth referrals is always going to be more helpful than reading reviews on the internet.
Next, remember that friendliness is a good indicator of the atmosphere of a veterinary clinic. The attitude and manner of the staff is something you will feel right away when you enter a clinic. Are they friendly and calm? Do they have a good “bedside manner”? Does your pet like them?
Find out what the vet’s philosophies are on topics like euthanasia, chronic disease care, and spaying and neutering. Having a veterinarian with a philosophy that matches yours can make a big difference when it is time to make those big decisions.
Before choosing a veterinarian, get clear about their fees and their policies. Ask about how they expect payment and if there are options for paying.
A vet clinic’s hours of operation are also a big consideration. Are they open at hours that are convenient for your family? Even if you choose a veterinarian who is near home, if they aren’t open the hours you need them, it doesn’t matter how close they are.
This is an important decision for you and your pets. When you choose the doctors at Claus Paws as your veterinarians, we know you won’t be disappointed.
