Tripawds is honored to interview Cyndie Courtney, DVM, creator of "VetChangesWorld.com"!

Have you ever left the vet's office with a ton of questions you didn't get answered? Do you ever feel like you're not getting your concerns across to your vet? If you've ever thought that "speaking up" makes you look like a jerk, this is the show for you.

In this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio Dr. Courtney will teach how to communicate with your vet so your pet gets the care you want. We'll talk about:

  • What a vet's typical day is like, and why you might sometimes feel that you didn't get the information and advice you'd hoped for.
  • Why and how to ask questions about a suggested treatment -- instead of stating what you might have heard before as fact.
  • How to know when the time is right for a second opinion -- and how to ask for one without feeling like you're insulting your vet.

Dr. Cyndie Courtney is a practicing veterinarian in Kansas City and founder of the veterinary blog Vet Changes World. She works every day to make a difference in the lives of pets and the people who love them. She is especially interested in how veterinarians and pet owners can work together to make pet healthcare decisions.
