At Plaza Veterinary Hospital, we want to help you take the best possible care of your pets. When it comes to keeping your pet healthy, one thing you absolutely need is a reliable pet clinic. To help tell a good pet clinic from a bad one, in this article, our team will go over some of the key qualities that a reliable clinic should have.
- The Staff Care About Your Pet’s Comfort- One indicator that you’ve found a reliable pet clinic is that the staff care about your pet’s comfort. At Plaza Veterinary Hospital, we understand that your dog or cat will naturally be at least a little anxious when they go to the vet’s office, so we make every effort to help them relax once they arrive to make their experience as stress-free as possible. Look for calm, composed clinic staff – if they give out treat pouches, that doesn’t hurt, either.
- The Vets Run Thorough Tests- Another quality of a reliable pet clinic is that the vets run thorough tests to screen for health problems or to identify an issue that’s affecting your animal companion. A good vet team will err on the side of being too cautious with your pet’s health rather than being too lax. Our team understands that you need peace of mind when it comes to your pet’s health, so we will run a thorough battery of tests to ensure that we can catch any issue that may arise as early as possible.
- The Team Communicates Well- A third thing to look for in a pet clinic is a team who will communicate well with you. This means that the staff listen to your concerns and take the time to explain anything you’re unclear about, whether that’s a term you don’t know or the reason why your pet needs a particular test. We at Plaza Veterinary Hospital have over 35 years of experience with pets and their humans, so you can count on us to keep you informed of everything you need to know about your pet’s health and to take your concerns seriously.
