You want to get good references from dog owners, breeders, shelters and dog rescues.
Check the vet 's education and experience.
Check to see if they are American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited. Membership does ensure a certain level of medical care.
Before going to the vet, make a list of question and concerns.
Can I call is often as I want to get updates on my dog if hospitalized.
Ask for a tour of the facilities.
It would be great if you can introduce your dog to the vet way before his/her first visit.
Most important is good communication with the vet.
Make sure that your vet doesn't mind when you ask a lot of questions.
See if the vet will let you pick up medication or script without an office visit after you have been established with them.
Try to develop a friendly relationship with the vet and staff.
Are their hours convenient for you?
