A few weeks ago my best friend and her partner had to put down a member of their family. It was one of those truly unfortunate situations where the animal had stopped eating and things were going downhill fast. To make matters worse, their vet had made some big changes to their local clinic’s staff and prices, and my friends had to travel to a new another animal hospital to have a complete stranger euthanize their pet.
Dawn and Tina ended up adopting an adorable little terrier mix over the weekend, and are now on the hunt for a new animal hospital and a veterinarian who they can trust for many years to come.
Obviously, because of what happened with their first pet they have decided against taking their new pup to the same veterinarian. And so, with trepidation and an understandable bit of anxiety, they are asking friends, family, and the Internet who their next veterinarian should be.
This story is not unique. It plays out all across the nation every single day. With over 70 million pet owners throughout the U.S., what my friends went through is, unfortunately, fairly common. Situations with veterinarians and animal hospitals change, relationships progress or fall apart, and it’s not just the vet who pays the price. Pet parents are regularly seeking out trustworthy, experienced and dependable veterinarians.
