|Pretty much agree with what everyone else has said, but posting as a reminder... if you otherwise like a vet and their practice, but you find that they disagree with you on a certain subject, PLEASE don't be afraid to politely stand up for yourself and ask that it not be made an issue for you.
My first vet I left for what I more or less call malpractice reasons. It was hard for me, as otherwise I'd had it very good with this vet, as they were mostly indifferent and occasionally even supportive of my opinions/methods.
Second vet I left because of the unreasonably rude treatment I was given by they staff. The VET was fine, but each time I took Mulder in and was asked what I was feeding, they made it a point to lecture me or mouth off about why raw is the devil. They did this even AFTER I told them, point-blank, that I wasn't there to discuss my dog' diet and that they need to drop the subject with me. They didn't, so I dropped them.
Vet I'm with now isn't really PRO raw, but doesn't seem to care or press the issue so long as the dogs are healthy. I can live with that- they do everything I want them to do, and don't do the things that I'd rather not, and for me that's good enough. If they do offer me an option that I don't particularly jive with, I simply tell them I'd rather look into other options on my own. Don't be afraid to say this to your vet- don't fight with them, just ask them to drop the issue. If they don't, walk. If they do... then stay as long as you are happy with them.
