Should I book an appointment with a veterinarian?

If you’re concerned about your pet’s health and wellbeing in any of the following areas, booking a consultation with a veterinarian can help:

  1. Dermatological concerns (itchiness, rashes, bumps on skin, etc.)
  2. Gastrointestinal concerns (vomiting and diarrhea)
  3. Limping / lameness
  4. Infections (ear, stomach, etc.)
  5. Seasonal concerns (allergies, bug bites, etc.)
  6. Toxicity concerns (eating something inappropriate)
  7. And much more!

Veterinarians are medical doctors and have completed extensive post-secondary training in order to attain their designation (typically, 8+ years). They are able to address unique medical concerns as they relate to your pet by providing personalized advice and care. In certain jurisdictions, vets can provide remote diagnosis and prescribe medication, however not every state and province permits this. You can read more about the veterinary-client-patient relationship in this help article.
