Took jasmine for her check up and booster vaccination today. Was disappointed in the vet that I saw and really couldn’t tell if jasmine has had a thorough check up.
I asked him what his opinions were on complete dog food and he said he didn’t have one and that I should feed my dog what Guide dogs tell me to feed her, which put my back up a bit. I then asked about the scurf which people have noticed in Jasmine’s coat and asked about her skin. he said “It looks OK to me”, but he wasn’t even looking at her. At some point during the consultation I asked the vet to clip jasmine’s dew claws, but it was only on my way home, once I had been ushered out fairly promptly, that I realised it hadn’t been done. I know I should have reminded him, but his off-hand attitude put me off my stride.
It may be that he is a good vet with appalling people skills, but how do I tell?
