My wonderful vets, who have looked after my animals all their lives have
always been fabulous but recently have gone over and above the call of
duty. Started out a month ago when we had to have my husband's 14 year
old dog euthanised on a Sun. morning. Paid $90 the next day to the
receptionist. Went back a few days later to get Spike a new supply of
Tapazole. Was told we had a credit as the vet hadn't wanted us to be
charged for the emergency fee. When I took Spike in last week for his
kidney problems, I overheard the vet tell them not to charge us for the
office visit, just the medical supplies we took home. Course they were
covered by the credit. Made a formal appointment with them yesterday
sans Spike to ask a bunch of questions, different vet this time, spent
about 20 minutes answering them all and got more supplies. Once again
no office visit charge and the supplies were still covered by the
credit. I'm starting to feel guilty. When you can find caring vets
like that you hang onto them for dear life. -Melinda
