Love, love, love our vet! Everywhere I went when I first moved here, people recommended him plus he was extremely close so that's why we started going there. Shortly after starting with him I found a stray cat that was battered & near death late on a weekend night & when I called his office, he answered! He met us at the office & did surgery that night. After we brought the little guy home, he called every day to check on him. We've had several emergencies since then & he's always been there. He doesn't have an answering service. He's always there to answers his own calls personally whether is late at night, the weekend, or a holiday. He also calls to check up on our animals even on the holidays. Can't say enough great things about our vet. I've been to some who can't remember the pets & seem to be more interested in the money. Our vet has shed tears with us, worried with us...he really cares.

We started going to our clinic because they saved our puppy's life when she was first found as a stray. But the reason they did that is because they are great vets and techs, very caring and thorough. Ideally I would like a vet that did not do declawing or ear cropping, but for now I like our clinic and the pets are used to it.

I love my vet. I have been going to the same vet for about 15 years. She is very far from my house but worth the drive. She has been with me through my first Rottie getting cancer to all my Crazy fosters I have had through the years. She is always so patient and takes the time to let all the dogs warm up.
Holistic vet that I am going to start going to this week is also pretty far away but my kids are worth it.
In the event of an emergency there is a 24hr trauma center that i would go to that took amazing care of my Frenchie when he was younger.

I love my Vet. I changed Vets after 6 months of another Vet making my puppy sick and now, my Vet is Terrific.... she is a little farther - but the drive is worth it - and not too far that if I had an emergency I couldn't get to her in time? In fact - 1 saturday night my dog got sick - I thought I would have to bring him to the emergency hospital - but i called my Vet - within 5 minutes - she returned my call and met me in the office with 20 minutes. I couldn't ask for a better Vet!

We found our vet after some issues with another guy who we were traveling 10 miles to see. Our new vet is within 3 miles of our home, but we would travel 20 miles to see him if need be. He is by far the best in our area.

I would only go to a vet that I trusted and liked. Fortunately, my vet is very close so I am lucky. But, my holistic vet is over an hour away. I have always had 2 vets - one conventional and one holistic.

My vet clinic is not close to me, but then again, living out in the boonies, nothing really is. There are closer vets to me than my vet, but I trust my vet for both my livestock and pets.

I really like my vet. I have been bringing my pets there since I was a child. I like the home type feel. They are nice, intelligent and very friendly. I actually drive 25 minutes to the vets instead of going to dozens that are closer. I do have an animal hospital closer to me if there is ever an emergency.
