Why Does My Pet Need An Exam Before They Will Give Me What My Pet Needs?

Warning: I am not a veterinarian. All advice I give should be taken with a grain of salt, as with a lot of advice you may read online. I just like to help animals, through helping their pet parents, with the 19 years of experience I have gained by working in veterinary medicine. Ultimately, you should consult your veterinarian before trying anything yourself at home.

“Why can’t the veterinarian just tell me what to do over the phone?”

“My dog/cat just needs the same medication they’ve been taking for years. Why does my pet need to have an exam when the doctor already knows what’s going on?”

I hear it multiple times everyday, animal parents calling in and getting upset because we can’t recommend anything over the phone for Fluffy’s vomiting, Spot’s limp, or Ginger’s diarrhea. Or the doctor requires an exam before we continue any more refills on Cookie’s medications.
