As a pet parent, you focus on being your buddy’s eyes, ears and voice at the veterinary clinic. Details you recount to your veterinarian can help crack a diagnosis. Likewise, information from your veterinarian can help you tweak creature comforts at home.

But when it counts, do you have trouble remembering the questions you wanted to ask? The following queries are a good place to start.

Which vaccinations are necessary for your pet? Along the same lines, what parasite preventives should you use and when? Is a specific diet recommended? And how much should you feed? If you have a paunchy pooch or a chubby cat, is a weight-loss plan in order? What about training tips for your young or manners-challenged pet? And what should you be doing for your special senior?

Knowing the questions to ask can help take the worry out of pet parenting.
