Many pet owners are turning to the internet attempting to self-diagnose their pets which could potentially lead to fatality, the British Veterinary Association ( BVA) has warned. Owners are increasingly going online to look up symptoms and treat pet themselves instead of going to the vet. In a survey by Voice of the Veterinary Profession, which questioned more than 700 vets, 80% said they had clients who took their pets in later than they should have while 98% believed their clients were influenced by what they read online. While some sites are useful, many illnesses have very similar symptoms which means they are also most impossible to diagnose without further tests. The warning from the BVA follows a similar one from doctors and health professions when it comes seeking advice from the internet before consulting a doctor. Always make sure that if you think your pet is ill the best thing to do is to contact your local vet as delay in treatment could prove extremely harmful or potentially fatal. Remember easipetcare veterinary centres provide FREE health checks carried out by our registered, friendly veterinary nurses who will be able to advise you on the best treatment for your pet should they require any.
