Interviewing A New Vet?

I am interested in changing to a new vet and need some advice on the best way to go about it.


Do I make an appointment with the clinic in order to just talk to him and ask questions? I want to make sure he and I are on the same page before taking my dogs and cats there, moving records, etc. He's a holistic vet, so I do have many, many questions. I am more than willing to pay for an office visit to get all of my questions answered.


Another, semi-related question: Will most vets share in advance what they charge for routine things? It's not the only factor in my choice, but to be very honest, unfortunately it does have some weight. This vet is pretty high profile, written books, has a radio show, etc. and I'm just afraid that he's way more expensive than what I am used to or can afford. :(


How have you gone about interviewing and choosing a new vet? I swear it's easier to choose a new people doctor.


Thank in advance for sharing opinions and experiences!

We just interviewed a new vet today! We went armed with our list of questions and just let the conversation flow. The vet was very welcoming and answered all of our questions without making us feel like we were obsessive about our dogs. :blush


We did ask questions about some prices (i.e. dentals) and she was very willing to share. Price is not the final determining factor in choosing a new vet but it does have some bearing on the decision. I don't think there is any harm in asking and I would be a bit concerned if they weren't willing to share.


All in all it was a good experience and we probably will change to her practice.


Good luck!
