What questions should I ask my veterinarian when my cat experiences an emergency? - Animal Hospital of Statesville
I think the best questions would be to make sure you understand the information on how to take care of your pet once leaving the hospital, especially if we're sending your pet home. A lot of veterinarians will provide written instructions because we understand that you may be a little emotional or may not remember everything that we say. You can always ask for written instructions. Read your labels because almost every medication should go home with instructions. So even though you may have thought you heard to give it one way, whatever is written on that bottle should be the way that you administer it. You can also call back and clarify. You may want to ask about the activity level recommended for your cat. If your cat is outdoors or indoor-outdoor, you may want to ask when they are allowed to go back outside again. Should they be around your other pets or your non-furry kids at home? You may want to keep them isolated or secluded because they might heal faster if they're not stressed out with other animals or people.
