When you're sick, you make it a point to find just the right doctor, and you'll search high and low until you find the perfect match.
For pet owners, they take a similar approach when it comes to finding the right veterinarian, more specifically doing plenty of research, making calls and grilling the doctor on call and making sure they're fit to take care of man's best friend, the household cat and anything else you might have.
So what exactly goes into finding the right vet beyond heading to Google and searching the word "veterinarian" and adding your city and state?
You have to make sure the location, first and foremost, is convenient. The last thing you want is to have to travel out of your way with a dog crate or cat carrier in tow for miles upon miles. The vet office itself should be within a few minutes from your home at most; keep in mind you have a very frightened pet on your hands.
For random check ups, you shouldn't be afraid to ask about the doctors, particularly if there is more than just one or two of them floating around on a daily basis. The reason behind that question is two fold: you don't want to spend most of your time in the waiting room and it's always good to have a variety of experts on hand for the simple fact that not every cat and dog are the same, or share common symptoms.
