A Good Vet

by on Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

Finding a good vet is an important part of your pet’s care. As soon as we decided to get our first puppy, finding a good vet was the most important task on our list.

We asked friends and family for suggestions on which vet to work with and they gave us a short list of names and phone numbers to consider. We drove by a couple of their offices to see where they were in relation to our home and what kind of neighborhood they were in. Then we called and made an appointment with the one that seemed to have nice facilities near our home.

We did get lucky in that choice. The vet is a wonderful woman has truly cares about the animals in her care. She listens to our concerns and works with us to develop a treatment plan and vaccination schedule.

Easy Local Search

Looking for a dermatologist is the kind of thing you do when you have a minute but its not usually a priority. I want to find one and make an appointment, but I’m not in a hurry and turns out it is not all that easy to find one close to my house. I’ve tried a couple of online searches and used the local Yellow Pages, but the only dermatologists that turn up are located downtown. Surely there is someone closer to me than downtown.

When I learned about Local.com I decided to give it a try and have it search for a dermatologist. Local.com is a search engine that blends information and features from other sites like Yellowpages.com and Superpages.com. I typed in the term dermatologist and entered my zip code and it came up with two candidates very close to my house. What a nice surprise!

The two listings that came up included driving directions, contact information and user reviews. I was able to compare the information from the results and call my first choice who then made an appointment with me for later this week. So with the help of Local.com and their great local search, I found the dermatologist I need.
