3 Things You Should Look for in a New Veterinarian, Sanford, North Carolina

For many people, pets are like beloved members of the family. As such, finding a great veterinarian to care for your animal is crucial. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to narrow down the search for the perfect animal clinic, especially when you live in a big city. And if you don’t know what to be on the lookout for, the process can become even more confusing. 

To make things simpler, consider the following three things you should look for in a new veterinarian:

  • veterinarianAAHA Accreditation: The AAHA is an organization that offers accreditation for animal clinics based on more than 900 metrics. In addition to evaluating the clinic’s readiness to handle a wide array of animal health issues, the AAHA also checks for things like continuing education, cleanliness, and proper laboratory practices. In order to become certified, clinics have to undergo in-depth, on-site evaluations every three years.
  • Great Bedside Manner: Nobody likes to work with medical professionals that aren’t friendly or communicative, which is why you should look for a veterinarian with a great bedside manner. Pay attention to how veterinarians act toward the animals and whether or not they seem happy, interested, and invested in the treatment of your pet. 
  • Advanced Equipment: Modern imaging and diagnostic equipment can make routine procedures safer and more comfortable for your animals. Before you start bringing your pet to a new clinic, ask about what kind of equipment they use and the last time it was updated. If you can tell that the clinic is outdated, keep looking until you find a place that offers the kind of experience your animal deserves.
