How To Choose The Right Vet

If you are looking for a professional, caring veterinarian that will keep your pet happy and full of life…then you need to read this quick guide to choosing a vet.

More and more, our pets are a huge part of the family. Any decision to choose a vet to look after our pets should be given a lot of thought. This can be confusing – there are so many different types of vets and even bigger differences in what clinics or hospitals can offer.

This means the old way of just choosing a vet, because they are the closest to your home , or that they are the cheapest, are gone! There are too many differences and too much at stake to just rely on cues like location or price.

This book is a light read and will only take a few minutes of your time. But those few minutes can save you (at best) countless, frustrating hours and dollars dealing with the wrong vet ; or (at worst) the severe illness of your much loved pet.

What I want to show you is as close as you will get to a foolproof way for you to choose your vet. This information is based on my in depth research into pet owners, the needs of pets as well as the changing landscape of veterinary medicine. Choosing a vet is a long term decision and you want to make sure that your vet and practice are moving with these changes.

So keep reading and I wish you every success with your pet and your new found vet.

Gordon Vet has looked after my golden retriever since she was 9 weeks. Everyone has been amazing and caring with lots of experience. I have been able to ask any questions and always been welcome. Even one day when she stepped on a bee in the evening, they stayed open until we got there and helped her get it out. Thanks to all the staff :-)

We just moved to Gordon couple month ago and need to get my cat vaccinated. We found this hospital through google and I need to say they provide excellent service and very professional! The doctor really knows cat. Highly recommended!

Exceptional veterinary hospital. I have been taking my dog here for many years and although I now live in the Eastern Suburbs, I still drive across town to see the Vets at Gordon. The staff are highly skilled, compassionate, friendly and helpful. My 9 year old dog has had 2 knee operations (1 on each knee!) and the outcome of these surgeries far exceeded my expectations. I have been incredibly impressed with the care provided during all of our visits. I would highly recommend Gordon Vet Hospital.

Fantastic and friendly staff who you can tell really care about your pet. Their follow up service is also very reassuring. I also board my cat with Gordon Vet and I feel very comfortable to know he's in safe and caring hands. I'm so glad I found this clinic.

Compassionate, caring and highly skilled veterinary surgeons who treat their patients and owners with respect. The nursing and administration staff are efficient and remember their patients by name which is a lovely touch. A lovely vet practice which despite our Golden Retriever Finn’s complex medical history, is always welcoming to him and he never displays any signs of anxiety when attending. Dr Helen is lovely and a firm favourite of ours!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!
