Your cat depends on the care you give at home and also the care provided by your veterinarian. Every time you visit the veterinary clinic becomes an opportunity for you and the veterinarian to work together to ensure your cat’s continued good health. Since the time spent in the veterinarian’s exam room is relatively short, it’s important to make the most out of it. Here are some tips to help you to be an ideal veterinary client:
1. Turn Your Cell Phone off
while in the exam room, don’t take phone calls or text. Focus your full attention on your cat. In addition to it being very rude, you stand a good chance of missing important information your veterinarian may be trying to convey.
2. Prepare Ahead of Time
Write down any questions you have for the veterinarian. It’s easy to forget something once you get inside the exam room. If you have a question about a particular behavior or problem your cat is having, it might be very helpful for your veterinarian to actually see it so if possible, capture the behavior on your smart phone.
