What type of care to expect from veterinarians

If this is your first time as a pet owner, you may not be familiar with veterinarians. Understanding the type of care they provide will help you best prepare for you and your pet’s first visit. Your veterinarian is like a partner in taking care of your pet. You do your part at home and your veterinarian will do their part when you bring your pet into the office. Veterinarians know how best to care for pets of all types and can answer any questions you have about your pet.

Basic checkups
The main type of care provided by veterinarians on the first visit is a basic check up. They will look over your dog cat or other pet to determine what state of health they are in. Through basic diagnostic testing, they will be able to diagnose any potential illnesses or areas of concern in your pet. The basic check up is very important and should be scheduled once or twice a year as needed based on the age of your pet.

When your pet is in the throes of an illness, they will need serious medical attention to become well again. Your veterinarian can provide this type of intervention to help restore the health of your pet. Veterinarians are highly trained in their field and understand what treatments are best suited to certain conditions. Don’t wait until your pet is very sick to bring them in to see the doctor as this will only allow their illness to develop. Instead make sure to take your pet to the veterinarian at the first sign of any potential illness or injury.

In addition to basic intervention and care, veterinarians also provide surgery when needed. They are available for minor surgeries, major surgeries, and other types of invasive but necessary medical treatment. It is always scary when your pet needs this kind of care however when you have brought them to a veterinarian that is highly trained and experienced, you can have peace of mind knowing that they will be restored to a healthier condition.

Emergency vet care
In addition to the aforementioned services, veterinarians can also provide after hours care. If your pet has a thorn in their paw, is listless and tired, has swallowed something they shouldn’t have, or has any other type of emergency situation, veterinarians can help. Schedule an appointment with your local vet to get your pet the care they need today. The Animal Hospital of Nesbit Ferry Crossing offers quality care for pets of all types.
