Recognize Your Power as Paying Medical Consumer


MyGermanShepherd Health ManualDemand always creates supply: Have high expectations of your veterinarian (and MD alike), and soon your expectations will be met.

  • While only a quality vet can
    • make the right examinations
    • determine the cause of any symptoms
    • and decide on the most suitable treatment
  • finding a quality vet is difficult because in the past too many dog owners have rewarded substandard allopathic vets with payment.
  • Yet it is easy to leave outright the average ordinary allopathic vet!
  • Just leave.

  • Also be aware that it is you who has the knowledge of all the factors just mentioned:
    • lifestyle changes
    • dietary changes
    • exercise changes
    • environmental factors etc.
  • Therefore, if your vet doesn't ask you questions relating to all these areas, and if your vet doesn't appreciate your insight, I would advise: LEAVE!
  • Just leave. Indeed.

  • That brings you many steps closer to finding a quality vet.
  • In fact, the more vets you leave outright - eg with words like "I will not subject my dog to such incompetence!" - the sooner you (and everyone else) will be left with only quality vets.
  • If you proceed like above, then it's highly likely that every time you visit a quality vet they conclude: "Your dog is in good health", and you pay nothing but the cheap basic assessment laid out subsequently here.
  • This also means, you don't pay dearly long-term for the harm to health that the short-term relief of some symptom implies. Don't!
