Veterinarians: How To Locate A Vet Worthy of Your Pet Rat

There are many wonderful veterinarians for your rat to see but locating them isn’t as easy as it sounds.

Many veterinarians are great with dogs and cats and are quite knowledgeable about them. However, they may be less well informed about how to take care of and treat your family pet. Many of them do not revere rat the way you may and think less of your pet than he or she would a dog, cat or even guinea pig. They may think it’s easiest to let the animal die and you buy another one instead. Some veterinarians may overcharge you since you have a pet rat.

Still, you can find one or two who do show some respect to the animal and who knows a bit about them. If you have questions, they are liable to answer your questions without hesitation. These are the vets you need to track down.

Before you even get a pet rat, it’s wise to find a vet who will work with you and inform you about your pet should you have questions. They also should be available in case you have an emergency.

You should never hear bad remarks about your pet of choice.

When you choose your vet, call them and be open about your animal. Find out how many rats they have seen and dealt with. Talk with the vet. Ask him or her questions that you feel are relevant to the care of you beloved pet. If they provide surgery on the animal, ask them about their success rate. You can never ask too many questions when it comes to a member of your family… human or animal.

Once you have a pet rat and have spoken with a vet, then you can contact them whenever you feel your rat is having problems. If you find a reputable veterinarian, spread the word through friends and the Internet.
