Choose the Right Veterinarian for You and Your Basset Hound
It’s important to have high-quality veterinary care, both preventative and illness treatment for your Basset Hound. According to American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) you should choose your pet’s veterinarian with the same care and criteria that you would in selecting a physician or dentist.
One goal should be to find out how well your potential veterinarian knows Basset Hounds. All dog breeds are susceptible to various health risks. The Basset Hound is prone to health conditions such as Osteochondrosis Dissecans, gastric torsion, elbow dysplasia, thrombopathy, entropion, otitis externa, ectropion, glaucoma, von Willebrand's Disease and canine hip dysplasia. A knowledgeable veterinarian will be on the lookout for these possible conditions in your Basset Hound and advise you on how to possibly prevent some of them.
Things to keep in mind when you are shopping for a veterinarian:
- Does the office have same day appointments?
- Does the office offer 24-hour emergency care?
- Are all technicians qualified and licensed?
- Does the veterinarian have experience with possible health conditions?
Have your list of questions ready when you visit the office. You should be able to interview the veterinarian before you choose any dog, and the doctor might be able to advise you if a Basset Hound is the best match for you.
