Rights Of Pet Owners From A Veterinarian During Visits by seunH: 12:56pm On Aug 28, 2020
In view of the uprising of different charlatans masquerading themselves as vets thereby putting your pet's life in danger in addition to incurring heavy financial losses, it was deemed appropriate to write this piece in order for pet owners to know their rights and what to expect when they visit a genuine veterinarian and also use that as a yardstick to distinguish charlatans from genuine veterinarians.

These are your rights below;
1) It is your right as a pet owner to be attended to nicely, with the veterinarian patiently listening to all the problems your pet is facing as regards to it's health
2) It is your right as a pet owner for your pet to also be treated nicely with compassion while the veterinarian tries to diagnose your pet's condition
3) It is your right as a pet owner for the the veterinarian to tell you what he/she feels is wrong with your pet after examination
4) It is your right as a pet owner, for the veterinarian to tell you the prognosis(severity and chances of survival) of your pet's condition
5) It is your right as a pet owner, for the veterinarian to tell you your options (may be commencement of treatment or euthenasia (based on the chances of survival or cost of treatment versus the value of your pet))
6) It is your right as a pet owner, for veterinarian to tell you the name and explain the purpose of every drug the veterinarian wants to administer or wants you to administer
7) It is your right for the veterinarian to tell you the preventive measures to be taken to avoid your pet from contracting the disease/condition again
In conclusion, if your "vet" denies you any of the above rights, He/She is LIKELY A QUACK. If there is anything anyone feels I left out should feel free to add.

Hello vet!
I have this vet is normally take my dogs too, she is usually secretive as she doesn't give my dogs injections in my presence, I have questioned her severally about it but she said that how it's been done, should I be worried about her ??

Hello vet, it's me again!
I picked up a female Boerboel a month ago @ 7 weeks, took her straight away to the vet, gave her, her 1st dhlpp shot, dewormed her too..I put her on booster dry food, she ate it normally for 3 weeks but few days ago, her appetite dropped..

I thought it was worms so I took her to the vet for her second shot and deworming..

I even bought 4 can food too spicy up the dry food yet, she eats to her little fill and goes back..

She's active and playful and her poo is okay even though it's now once in a day she poos unlike before..

Am just concerned, is everything okay with her?

What should I do for her to regain her appetite fully, please..

Am really doing the best I can regarding her feeding to make sure she turns out great..

First of all, Sir I want you to put your mind at rest, it happens like that at times due to many factors like change in environment, change in feed or even symptom of disease. Therefore in other to rule out all alternatives and put our minds at rest, I'll advice you to fix a day for a general medical check-up by your Vet. I'll be on standby.

I appetite is kicking up little by little.. someone told me to remove her meal if she declines and return it during another feeding hour..

It's been working ever since, when I give her the dry food, she rushes it now and when she's tired of full, I remove it quickly.

Thanks for your response sir
