Health Problems

Despite our best efforts, our animals sometimes become sick or injured. I will work with you to determine a diagnosis and choose a treatment regimen that considers:

  • The animal
  • The problem
  • Available therapies
  • Financial constraints
  • Possible adverse effects of therapy
  • Quality of life for both owner and animal(s)

It is important that you (as the owner) and I (as the veterinarian) have a mutual understanding of the diagnosis, potential treatments, and goals of therapy. This encourages a cooperative and effective veterinarian/client/patient relationship (VCPR).
