Taking your new pet (whether dog, cat, hamster, or any other living thing) to the veterinarian should be your first priority. This is especially true if you have other pets. It’s a good idea to make sure your new pet is healthy and doesn’t have any diseases or viruses he or she could transmit to other animals in the house.
Your first veterinarian visit should be an enjoyable experience. You’ll learn all kinds of things about your new companion! Plus, you’ll want your veterinarian to get to know your pet during times of health so he or she will easily be able to recognize abnormal behavior if your pet ever becomes ill.
Here are three essential questions for your new vet, for detailed information check our What to Ask The Veterinarian Guide.
