Driving Your Vet Crazy

First of all, I’d like to reiterate that I have the best veterinarian on the planet- -Dr. Douglas Brost. I’ve mentioned him before, because we’ve been through so much, with so many of my animals over the years, that he is also a dear friend.

When I came across this article by another veterinarian, I thought I’d pass along some of its wisdom and in doing so, as usual, learned a little something myself.

Dr. Patty Khuly put together a list of things that people do which drive their vets nuts and they include, but are not limited to these things:

  • Bringing small children to your appointments and then letting the venue be your babysitter. (This is one of my pet peeves no matter where it is).
  • Letting your dog run around instead of leashing them in. This is rude to other people and can lead to confrontations between dogs.
  • Carry your cat- – -Uh oh! I’ve been guilty of this right up until this year when I put both cats on a leash! It’s true though, I should have them in a carrier, considering that they also could precipitate an office battle between furry species! (Sorry about that Dr. B & crew, I’ll try to do better next time!)
  • Answering your cell phone is rude, disrespectful and extremely annoying! In fact you should think about this when you’re at a bank or restaurant drive-up, standing in line at a checkout, out to dinner with friends and more. There’s nothing that says, “You aren’t important enough to me to give you my full attention.” like answering you cell when someone is in mid-sentence. Be in the moment, the person you’re supposed to be interacting with will appreciate it more than you can imagine.
