If the trouble has already occurred, you had better turn to an expert. Below is a list of the recommended vets in Budapest.
You do not need to panic
A dog is a human’s best friend, but depending on the personality, it may be a tarantula. And who is that heartless villain who leaves his best friend at home while he is away on holiday? You are not like this, are you? You are certainly not!
However, there is no holiday without complications. No other occasion provides a better chance for your four- or multilegged pet to catch an acute disease than a holiday.
But if it has happened, what can you do? You can choose from two solutions.
One of them is for you to panic, hold back your tears, and mumble some prayers. The other one is (and my suggestion is that this is the right one) that you head for a vet!
Fortunately, Budapest, just like all the metropolises, offers some solutions to the above-mentioned unhappy situations as well.
Like in the case of pharmacies, you need to watch for a cross, however, a blue one instead of green. The surgery hours of the majority of the vets in Budapest are fixed, many times you even need to make an appointment with them. In an urgent case, however, you can turn to them any time, nobody will send you away.
Similarly to human doctors, working on duty also exists at vets, and although during the duty hours the treatments are more expensive, sometimes a lot more, but it does not matter when it comes to our mate’s health, does it?
In a vet’s surgery, you will get even the medicine that your pet needs to take after the treatment.
It is really important to take with you all the documents of your pet, and do not forget to inform the vet about any existing health problems! If your dog has a tendency to panic in an unknown place, put a muzzle on him by all means. This way you can protect both the vet and the patient.
In Hungary the biggest animal health hazards are ticks. They spread more kinds of disease, and by now they have already settled in the green areas of the metropolis.
If you go around such places, after the walk it is worth checking your pet’s fur. Rabid animals have not been found in the country for years due to the thorough preventive measures as well as the obligatory vaccinations.
However, you do not need to worry about the latter anyway, since you cannot enter the territory of Hungary if your pet has not been vaccinated beforehand.
