A fellow Cardigan-slave is looking for a new vet after a rather unpleasant experience at her current one. Any suggestions? My personal preference is always for a repro specialist because they can handle the breeding stuff and puppy checkups, but the main concerns are 1) doesn’t freak out about feeding raw or limiting vaccines (owner is happy to vaccinate but wants to follow the Schultz or Dodds conservative schedule) and 2) the office is relatively kid-friendly or at least won’t shoot her dirty looks if she brings her kids in.
Wow, can I relate to this last one. My lovely vet’s staff has taken pity on me many times and let me go into the exam room early, as I am trying to control one or more dogs as Tabitha re-arranges all the business cards in the entire Wall of Referrals and Zuzu does her best to bodily leap on every dog and cat and ferret and newt that are brought into the waiting room.
