Just curious as to your thoughts. Our vet is fantastic, he is over 80 years old, has ran his practice for years and years and is highly recommended. He is very no nonsense, and his two vet receptionists are fantastic (I think one of them is a vet nurse too) and they always give great advise over the phone. What I love about the practice is, unless they really can't advise, they are always recommending things you can try and home first. If you insist on seeing them, you can of course, but they generally ask why your ringing and see if they can save you a visit first. When I took Apollo to our vet recently, he said he doesn't agree with deworming and defleaing monthly. He said when he had his puppy, he de-wormed him then, and after that, unless he had worms (which he said, if you're picking up their poop, you will see) he doesn't see the point in giving it monthly. He said the reason lots of vets and the companies themselves advise to, is because of money. He also only advises to vaccinate dogs and cats every two years, not one. I love this ethos, and I have never personally heard anything bad about him or his practice. Just curious as to peoples thoughts. I think it is so refreshing to have a vet that doesn't try and wrangle money out of you at every given moment!
