We adopted Teddy in February from the SPCA. He was still under vet care at the SPCA for the first couple of months after his adoption. But we knew we would eventually want him to go to our favorite vet who has taken care of our pups since we first moved here, and we love all of the staff there.
Jerzee is not so much a fan. Granted, the majority of her visits involve someone sticking her with a needle. I don’t blame her. But she is a good sport, though she does end up being in Michael’s arms by the end of the checkup.
Ted was unsure but warmed up as soon as the treats came out. The vet loved him. He is quite a handsome dog. And it helped that his checkup didn’t involve any needles or anything invasive. His opinion may change when it comes time to update his vaccinations.
The important factors of a vet clinic to us are how willing they are to explain any procedure or diagnosis, how patient and calm they are with our dogs, how familiar they are with our dogs (especially after seeing Jerzee for years) and how knowledgeable they are with the latest pet care trends (whether they really are helpful or not). It’s our little pet family, and I would recommend them to anyone!
