So I tried a new vet. I have switched a couple of times, trying to find the better ones. I had to use this one because my semi regular one was booked for weeks. Well, the price seemed a little high. Also, the vet talked to me like I was a moron. She had this air of superiority to her.

I made the mistake of telling her I feed raw. Well, I mean they asked me. She told me she has seen so many bad things because of it, though she didn't elaborate. I am assuming she meant obstructions and bones poking through. I didn't bother to ask because I already know they pros and cons of it, having studied it to great lengths before making an informed decision.

I asked her what she fed. Eukanuba. Her dogs are 14 and blah blah blah. I asked her what she thought about the corn they use and she said its fine. Thats when I realized I should never use her again and tell as many people as possible not to as well. She even thinks meat meal or meat by products are ok as long as its a reputable comapny :eek:

She ALMOST made me feel bad but I know better and I shouldn't be made to feel that way as I pump her bank account.

The dogs need to go back for boosters to the vaccinations they got. They also estimated pulling my dogs tooth at about 1200....maybe a little less. Seems a little high to me.

It just frustrates me how she talked to me. I do more research for my pets than the average person and while I am not a vet (nor act like one) I am educated on things. I know she is probably used to having to speak that way to the general public but I made it clear to her and I do my homework. Sigh, and I did not agree with the whole corn thing.

ERGH, had to vent. PLease comment!

We recently moved, and it's unfortunate because we're trying hard to find a good vet, especially with the horrors we've faced thus far. We went to a highly recommended vet for my dogs spay, and they ended up shaving half her lower body almost all the way up her sides for a one inch incision (which looks WAY too small for a spay) and then sewed the incision site too tight and overlapped the skin, causing the stitching to dig in and a massive infection to set in under skin and sending us to an e-vet within two days.

Searched for another vet for my doxie's neuter, found one with lots more recommendations. The incision looks like they just pinched the skin and hardly bothered to sew it shut. Also come to find they knicked his urethra. Another e-vet visit within two days.

In my old town before we found our regular vet we loved, we visited a vet recommended through the grooming salon I worked in. The guy not only in front of us said he didn't like animals, but kicked my dog (not pushed with his foot. Kicked.) when he vomited in the office and went back to eat/smell it.
