First write a list of any particular concerns you have about your pet. This can include both physical health concerns and behavioral issues. Writing these concerns ahead of time ensures that you remember to bring them to the vet's attention.

Before the appointment you should talk to the vet and ask if you need to bring anything with you or prepare anything. For many veterinarian appointments, the staff will ask you to not feed your pet for at least a few hours before the appointment. You should also provide a list of any allergies that may prevent your pet from taking certain medications.

If possible you should try to confirm the types of medications used by the vet, as some are not recommended like certain flea medications. You should ensure that your pet gets the best medical care possible in your budget.
