    Dr. Laura Castillo

    Dr. Laura was born and raised in México. As far back as she can remember, she only had one dream and it was a dream of one day becoming a veterinarian.


As a pet owner, you’ll want to ensure your pet’s vaccinations are up-to-date and that they have no health conditions. You should also bring along a list of all medications, supplements, and vitamins that your pet is taking. If possible, bring a copy of their medical records and questions about the appointment.

As a new pet owner, it can be hard to know when to make your first visit. If your dog is a puppy and has just been adopted, or if he’s older than three months, then you should probably call ahead and schedule an appointment at that time. If he gets sick while still young, it may take some time before his symptoms are severe enough for him to need a professional veterinary doctor. However, if there’s been an injury sustained during playtime with another animal (or human), this could mean that things have progressed further than expected. In both cases above: Your vet doctor for pets would probably recommend seeing them as soon as possible—but not necessarily right away!

A veterinary specialist is a veterinarian who has undergone additional training in a specific area of veterinary medicine and passed a certification examination. They work alongside your primary veterinarian to diagnose and treat complex medical conditions, offering advanced knowledge and skills for the best possible care of your pet.

A veterinarian, specifically trained in the care of dogs, is the doctor you should visit for your canine companion. They provide a wide range of services including vaccinations, wellness exams, treatment of illnesses and injuries, and guidance on nutrition and behavior to ensure your dog stays happy and healthy.
