After moving to a new state one of the first things I knew needed to be done was to find a new veterinarian for my senior dog.
I found a nice looking place nearby my home but looks aren’t everything. It didn’t take me very long to realize that all veterinarians are not created equally.
Maybe my other vet spoiled me. She was an amazing woman who truly had a gift and a love for animals great and small. Even if we weren’t there to see her, but only for a nail trimming, she always made it a point to peak her head in and say hello…. not just to me… but to whichever pet I was there with that day.
When my Sheltie became arthritic she would kneel down on the floor to do her examinations so as not to cause discomfort to my baby. To me that was the true sign of a great veterinarian.
On the other hand, my new vet, well I don’t think I’ve even met her yet. I made my initial appointment to see her so we could introduce ourselves and get acquainted with each other but instead I met her Physician Assistant. I was charged the full doctor’s office fee without actually seeing the doctor. That didn’t go over very well with me.
Anyway, pretty sure I’m going to be looking for a new vet in the very near future.
