Critical Thinking:

For a veterinarian, critical thinking starts with having a clear idea of what something should be, continues by collecting information about what it is, and concludes with the application of knowledge and experience to bring about improvement.

Ask Questions:

1. What is the normal condition of a healthy animal?

2. How can I collect accurate data about an animal’s physical condition?

3. What indicates a possibly serious health problem?

4. What should be done to keep an animal healthy?
