    Yes there are pet taxis in our area, our vet has cards on the desk to advertise them.

    I haven't experienced that. We have had our dog in a taxi when he was really ill.

    Try a different taxi company? Where we are there are quite a few taxi companys, some of them allow the dog, others dont.

    Where we used to live I just took the dog or cat on the bus to the vets.

    How ridiculous - they surely can't refuse a blind person with a guide dog .... well hopefully not. I presume they are quite happy to pick up the drunks after a night out though.

    On the odd occasion Ive had to travel to the vet in a taxi my cats/kittens are obviously in a pet carrier and the taxi operators have always been happy with that.

    When my car was off the road I found a pet taxi and in fact it was a lot cheaper than a regular taxi.

    Hi, I have never had a problem using a taxi to take to vet....try another company or ring and ask if they do cos sometimes drivers may make the decision off their own back xx
