The best vet EVER!!

I decided to change vets because mine sucked, and she charged a FORTUNE. My old vet was really cold, never really answered my questions, and always looked anoyed that I had some! The last time I went she didn't even examine Buster, but charged me for a whole examination. grrrrr.

So I brought Buster to a new vet, and it was the best vet visit I've ever had in my life. She was nice to Buster, nice to me, and answered all my questions without looking anoyed. She actually told me she liked it when patients asked alot of questions, it shows they are interested in their dogs health. She was genuine, sweet, and gentle. Buster loved her, even after she gave him his shots, he licked her and gave her quite the bean-wiggle-butt dance. She asked about his food, about his eating habits, she gave him the most thourough exam I've ever seen. Plus, she charged less then the other vet. At the old place, I was in and out within 2-3 minutes, this lady spent a good half hour with us.

So, not all vets are bad :D And for those of you who aren't 100% happy with your vet, look around!! I'm glad I changed!

LOL!! I'm usually not much for advertising, but I was THAT impressed with the service I got! buster was also quite taken with the vet. Although he didn't much care for the Sheltie in the waiting room (I think he thought he might be his supper!! :eek: )

I think in cases where it isn't your own business and where it's not a friend's business, etc, you're allowed... Maybe ask Marko to be sure.. Good vets need the word of mouth (just like I WISH we could "word of bad mouth" the bad ones...).

That's great! A good vet is a priceless treasure. :) I'm so happy with my vet. He always remembers my animals' names and medical history and would even put rugs down everywhere whenever Ebony visited, because she slips on tile.

I love my vet. She is Dr. Fabienne Renault at the St.Lazare clinic and she just adores my Chloe!!

She always takes the time to talk to a dog and give a little treat before examining, and was SO gentle and considerate when Chloe was having her heartworm treatment and recent bladder surgery. She brought Chloe through all this with no complications, and always calls back when I phone.

She is concientious, knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. Chloe and I are lucky to have her.:thumbs up

I have two "best vets" in Harley's life. His main vet was a strong enough person to admit that she couldn't treat Harley when he was extremely ill and referred him to a specialist in Ottawa. His main vet will also take the time to talk with me about Harley and has also sat and cried with me when it was touch and go with my pup.

My second best vet was the one we were referred to when Harley contracted blastomycosis. Although he was very business like, he never let me give up on saving my Harley. He even called me at home, in the evenings, to see how things were going on several occasions.

These special people have seen the worst of me and the best of me...and they have made Harley's life whole again.

God bless them:angel:

Prin Is correct. :highfive:

It would be Okay to name the vet here.

Thanks all

A good vet is such an awesome find! I'm glad you finally have one that you like and are comfortable with.

It took me a while to find one as well, but now that I did and have been going there for several years, I can't imagine going anywhere else. Not only is my vet great, but the whole clinic staff are amazing people as well. When Misty was first diagnosed with Cushings and we were going through her loading phase, her vet would call me from home on his days off and even gave me his home number for just in case.

I am switching vets one because I want a better one and two because we moved and my old one was too far.

Anyone know of a good vet in AJAX ontario?? Whitby? Pickering?

Cool! Doubt if anyone else is in Spokane, but in case you're passing through . . . my vet is Dr. Benoit at SouthCare Animal Clinic. He rocks! He's the resident vet and there are usually a few qualified but younger and less experienced vets working under him. They're also very nice, but I prefer Dr. Benoit and always ask specifically for an appointment with him, unless it's just something like vaccinations. :)

When we find good vets we stick with them!! I drive almost an hour to the dogs vet, and for the cats ( different vet) the same distance. For my rabbits however ( cause its so hard to find vets around here that take them as clients) I drive almost an hour and a half!!!
It sucks that i live in such a rural area where most of the more local vets work strictly with livestock!

I'd love to find a vet that doesn't hit me with a crazy bill EACH time I go.

Every single time I go, he manages to sneak something into the bill as he talks to me. I feel like I'm at a car salesman or something. :(

My Mom takes her kitties to the Pickering Animal Hospital on Highway 2. We used to take our husky there too. They have a few very caring vets there.

I see both DR erdman and DR masse from Pierrefonds animal hospital. They are both open to try natural remedies, and has always answered all my concerns with all my animals without hesitation.
They are very friendly, and are not afraid of harley.... Actually been used as a demo dog, LOL

Ok so I found a new vet. My fiance took him. I always miss out on vet appointments but make sure he gives me a detailed account of what went down. Seems to think I am overly obsessed but having a good vet is important.

Capone goes there muzzle on of course and as soon as they saw him they said here let us give you a room to wait in b/c they couldn't stand to see him in a muzzle. 1 point for new vet ( then they went on how they joined a group that fights against BSL and all this other stuff and how the law is sooo unfair, hubby said she was more upset then he is about it)

Then they tell hubby that they are not going to give him his shots because techinically dogs only need them every 3 years. That they were going to do a full stool analysis (called wellness health or something check) and then figure out what shots he needs if any. 2 points

Then she said let me sit with him (ok maybe this isnt chronilogical order) first and let him get familiar with me. 3 points

Then the vet went on about how she offers hollistic options, food, medicine ect... 4 points

Knew about food when we said capone was on wellness and recommended we stay on human grade food.. 5 points

Then she attempted to cut his nails, he got squirmy and she said since its his first time here I don't want him to associate me or this place with nail cutting. ... 6 points


I am just so happy because honestly I wanted to interview a vet first. lol.

Its funny because I was just telling hubby about the vaccinations and so when she said about the 3 year thing he said 'oh my girlfriend is gonna love you'. I do! I do love you!

Ok sorry I am just so relieved.
