After you bring home your new best friend, it is essential that you find the right veterinarian. Your multigenerational Australian Labradoodle puppy’s health should be priority number one. As a new pet owner, you should ask yourself, how do I know if I have found the right veterinarian for my Labradoodle? Whether you opt to go with the holistic vet or the conventional choice, you must know that this is a personal choice that only you can make. Although it is your choice, here are some guidelines that might help you narrow down your decision.

Communication is very key. It is vital that you select a vet that is open with you. Also, work with someone who will talk with you, not at you. A great vet will not push their opinions on you and demand that you go along with their methods, but instead will ask for your input and thoughts about your Labradoodle’s health and your preferences.

Ask for referrals. If you have acquaintances with pets as well, ask them about their vets and see who they trust. Before you schedule an official appointment, it is a good idea to make a preliminary visit to take a tour and preview the staff and environment to see if it is a good fit. 

Cost. Texas Australian Labradoodles provides complimentary 30-day Trupanion Pet Insurance. If you choose to extend this service, your puppy insurance will cover diagnostics, medications, surgeries, hospital stays, prescription foods, prosthetic and orthotic devices, carts, supplements and herbal therapy. Other services would be covered at additional cost, such as rehabilitation therapy, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, chiropractic, behavioral modification and therapy, homeopathy, and naturopathy. Since most vets will accept Trupanion Pet Insurance, choose a vet that will deliver the highest quality service to ensure that your new furry one is in the best of hands. Ask questions and analyze the payment options. Know when all your fees are due and which methods of payment are accepted.

Schedule check-ups regularly. If your preliminary vet visit is a success, do not waste any time and get your Labradoodle in for a routine check-up. Make sure your puppy is healthy and happy, so if there is anything wrong you can be ahead of it. 

What if something goes wrong? If the first visit with your new vet does not go as well as you expected, there is no reason to panic. Do not be shy about trying a handful of clinics, each one is different, and one may feed your needs better than others.
