Canine and Feline pre-purchase counseling
It’s easy to fall in love with a dog or a cat.
Your housecall veterinarian, Dre Lindsay can offer you precious advice before you purchase a pet. Acquiring a pet is a big responsibility. To avoid unpleasant situations, a pre-purchase canine or feline consultation is strongly recommended.
In your role as owner of a dog or cat, you will need to dedicate time, money, and a lot of love to your new pet.
You must first determine why you want to adopt this animal. A pet will live with you for 10 to 20 years or more. The decision to choose a companion for such a long period must be thought through.
Will you have enough time for your pet? You must consider the time your pet will require daily, because every day your new cat or dog will need food, water, care and moments with you. Some of these considerations also involve a financial cost. It takes equipment (bedding, toys), grooming, veterinary costs, boarding, dressage etc. By discussing with your veterinarian, you’ll have a good idea of the budget required to properly take care of a dog or cat.
Your vet will also advise you on the best way to educate and help your pet to socialize with other people and animals around him. This canine or feline pre-purchase consultation with the veterinarian should help know if you are ready to adopt a pet and which pet is best suited to your expectations. Your veterinarian will make sure the animal you have chosen is healthy and ready to lead an exciting new life with you.
