Is anybody else NOT exasperated by their vet?
I was reading the training thread about the pup being bopped in the nose and it worked its way into vets and vet techs and toenails and I don't know what all.
Does anyone else feel like they have a pretty good group they work with when it comes to the vet.
My vets are very welcoming, I can come with my dog and hang out in the lobby, use the scale, and have the vet techs give them treats. The vet even brought her Beagle up, when my dog was working on being social with other dogs.
We do not agree about every last thing, and occasionally, I am a little upset about something, but they are very helpful and do try to make things right.
The vets always take the time to answer my questions, whatever they are. (I try to ask them during an appointment time, though I have called and asked a few questions as well.)
And I get the impression that they really care about my dogs.
Even the toenail thing, I have never seen them be rough or irritable, or manhandle my dogs. When they do do toenails, they do it matter of factly. The only really negative thing was the cutting off of a broken toenail -- that was grusome, but after it was done, treats around and the dog, though seriously traumatized got over it really quickly.
Sometimes I think our own responses to the treatment our dogs get causes as much if not more trouble than the treatment itself.
