What is your client’s main goal?
When starting a diagnostic investigation for allergic disease, Bourgeois recommended finding out the client’s main goal, priority, and definition of success. Here are a few questions to ask:
- Do they want their pet to stop itching today?
- Do they care most about getting rid of the odor?
- Are they proactive owners who want to avoid chronic medications?
- Will they bathe daily if it avoids systemic antibiotics?
