I'm the proud owner of two rescued beagles. Cooper, my male is roughly 6 years old, and Beatrix my female is moving into her senior years, 11 years old is our best guess. I love them dearly; in fact, I often refer to them as my kids. And, just like any loving parent, finding the right doctor for them was very important to me. I’ve moved cross country a few times and across the way, I’ve met and done business with quite a few different types of veterinarians. Some I’ve loved, and was sad to leave behind; others, I spent one visit with and promptly found a new veterinarian to bring my fur kid to for health checks or emergency visits.
We are very fortunate to have four veterinary offices in Gillette with a host of great vets and clinic staff in them. Some of you may be new to Gillette, or maybe you’re just looking for a second opinion; or maybe even thinking it may be time to change your vet. Here are some helpful tips when it comes time to finding the right vet for you.
Below are some more articles to consider reading on getting comfortable with your vet, as well as helping your pet get comfortable with the vet and their office/clinic. Do you have some tips? Put them in the comments below.
