5 Questions Every Cat or Dog Owner Should Ask Their Vet

The New York Times has compiled a list of questions every pet owner should be asking their vet about their cat or dog on their next visit. Here they are:

  1. What should I be feeding my pet? Your vet can steer you toward the food that’s ideal for your pet’s age, breed, size and activity level.
  2. How’s my pet’s weight? A 2018 clinical survey by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention reported that 55.8 percent of dogs and 59.5 percent of cats are overweight or obese.
  3. How much exercise do they need? Professionals agree the amount varies by a pet’s age, breed and medical history.
  4. How do their teeth and gums look? Stinky breath, rotting teeth or loss of appetite can mean periodontal disease, or worse, an infection in the heart, known as endocarditis.
  5. Can you explain my bill? The best veterinary clinics are up front about the costs of treatments they recommend as well as the associated benefits and risks.
