Stand Up to Your Veterinarian: For Your Dog’s Sake
Posted Jul 21 2008 10:19am
Too often, veterinary practice lags years (even decades) behind veterinary science and even American Veterinary Medical Association recommendations. If you’re reading a lot about dog care,you, not your vet, may have more current knowledge about vaccination, nutrition and other aspects of care. But how do you get your vet to listen to your ideas? Standing up to authority can be scary.
Maybe you want to stop vaccinating youradultdog with unnecessary puppy shots, but realize yourvetisn’t really “up to date on his shots.” Or maybe your vet won’t listen to your views on natural foods or safer flea and heartworm remedies. He or she may even have a financial stake in being right and your being wrong. I’ll try to help you bridge the communications gap with my new video “Standing Up to Your Veterinarian.” Please take a look and tell me what you think.
