I've been with my vet since not long after he started his practice in what used to be a donut shop. He has since added another vet. He could add more, but he'd have to move to a different building. They have a wait list to take new clients which is unheard of in our small town. They have clients that come from Columbus (minimum of 30 min away) and my mom will be one of them as she is unhappy with her vet - and she's 45 min away. So, good vet. As I have 5 animals, I'm there quite a bit and they know what's been going on with me health wise. They are good people. I treated Jewel (and the cats) 2 weeks ago for fleas. Never had an issue at the other house with fleas, but this area is more mature with lots of wildlife. She was still itchy and we bathed her with oatmeal dog shampoo which seemed to help for a few days. Today, she woke me up digging at herself and she was shaking her ears a lot. I looked and didn't notice any mites or sign of infection, but it was obvious she was just miserable. So, I called and they got me in this afternoon. They had an emergency right before I got there and another as we were leaving. Appointments were backing up. It was standing room only in the waiting room with a couple of boxers who were so proud of themselves and came in announcing that the party could start now that they were there. Vet checks her teeth, her ears, her skin, says her anal glands are full and takes care of that (Jewel was NOT happy). We talked about some issues - Jewel got really sick last year when easy child went out of town and he's leaving again next month. Put her on steroids for allergies. My bill? Ready? $11.20.
