When To See A Specialist & Get A Second Opinion

with Dr. Lori Cesario

Welcome back to Your Dog Wants You To Know This!


We’ve had a lot of specialists join us on the podcast, but do you actually know how to work with a specialist? 


This is a solo episode all about when and why to see a specialist. I’m going to answer questions about how to make an appointment to see a specialist, how to find a specialist and what type of specialist you should see.


These are all very normal questions to have, so hopefully we can clear some of those things for you today.


If you think you might want to work with a specialist but don't know how, or you’d just like to know a bit more about them, this episode is a great one to tune in to! 


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • What veterinary specialists are 
  • Why specialists are so important 
  • When you might want to see a specialist
  • Making your vet aware that you are open to seeing a specialist 
  • How to make an appointment with a specialist
  • What type of specialist you should see 
  • What to expect when working with a specialist
  • How to find a specialist
