Re: The Vet Thread (Recommendations)

I know the title of this thread is about recommendations, but I feel compelled to post about a vet to avoid if possible.

We had a vet emergency this morning, (looks to be a dental problem) and our regular vet is on holiday and there is someone standing in but no one we know. Since we moved we have been thinking finding someone a bit closer anyways. So we called the vet clinic in Bad Zurzach which is nearer to us and got an appointment straight away.

There was parking right outside. It is an older clinic, there is no reception area and a very small waiting room. Once in the exam room, it was clear that not only was this used as the office area as the phone system was there, but the xray and even where other animals are kept. (there was a cat in a cage, and although the cage was covered the cat was frantic). This entire situation made Abby really nervous.

The doctor confirmed it was likely a tooth but said he does not have the right equipment to x-ray it. He said he would just pull the tooth he thought was the problem.

Having had the same problem with Cassie, we knew that even with an xray, the problem can be more extensive. We took Cassie to a special dental veterinarian in Germany and in the end she had 2 teeth pulled and the infection was in the bone. So it was worse than the initial xrays taken by our regular vet. We told the doctor we would take Abby to the specialist and he had never heard of him ! He gave Abby an antibitic shot and some antibiotic pills to send us on our way.

Abby started to move a bit back on the exam table and suddenly the entire table tilted upward like a teeter totter with Abby at the bottom. She wasn't hurt but a corner of the table caught my leg. That was no pleasant.

Abby has an appointment at the dental specialist on Wednesday. They will take the xrays and do what is needed.

If a moderator wants to move this post and change the title, that is fine with me.
