Sometimes it’s the family dog unable to stop gnawing at an irritated spot, even though the spot has become bald and rubbed raw. Sometimes the cat has fleas. Sometimes an elderly pet has reached the point of severely limited mobility and great pain. Sometimes the cat just needs its shots. Sometimes–some of the most worrying times–the puppy is fretful and doesn’t want to play. Is something really wrong with her? Is she suffering puppy growing pains, or is she sick? Could it be serious?
If it were a child with a skin condition, parasites, pain and limited mobility, scheduled vaccinations, or a listless feverish attitude, a parent would quickly visit the pediatrician. In that same way, pet owners should take their furry family members to a trusted veterinarian in Fort Bend County in any of the situations listed above. A good vet will be able to diagnose problems, prescribe medication, administer vaccinations, perform surgeries, groom, spay or neuter, provide dental work, control parasites like fleas and heartworms. Their main job is to help the family make informed decisions about their pet’s health. Sometimes a pet needs somewhere to go when the family goes out of town for a week; most veterinarians offer boarding services. In the event that a dog or cat dies, most vets also offer cremation services.
Just as parents would carefully consider choosing a general practitioner for themselves or a pediatrician for their child, a pet owner should be thoughtful and deliberate in their choice of a vet. People and animals alike should be comfortable in vet’s offices, like the Greatwood Veterinary Hospital, and in order to ensure that is the case, pet owners may wish to visit in person. If that is not an option, contact the office or at least browse their website to get a good overview of services offered and the professionalism and compassion levels of the staff. Contact people who use a Veterinarian Fort Bend County to get an idea of their prices and to see if other customers are satisfied. And certainly ensure that the people taking care of a pet’s medical needs are well-qualified to do so.
