That would be nice, Carol
. As it is my vet situation is interesting. One of the partners there is the most caring and kind vet I have ever known. When he did her surgery a few years ago for breast cancer/spay, he took her home with him overnight to watch her. The other vet is the exact opposite of him....abrupt, loud, and I cannot stand when she has to see him. I usually ask specifically for the other, but this morning seemed to be an emergency and I took whoever got to her first.
She is a mini Dox, age 14, blind with cataract. Her cataract "ruptured" (I use that term for lack of the correct word) suddenly this morning and looked just awful. She had special drops there at the vet and now is on steroid eye drops at home. She cannot have any surgery for this because she did not do well with her major breast cancer surgery and the kind vet said he wouldn't want to put her to sleep for surgery. So....I was very scared this morning, but feel better about it now.
