|Well I went to the vets today with Bella, I got just her rabies at the moment, and I can't really afford $200 for a titer. I really didn't like this vet one bit. First off when I talked to him about the fact that Bella could have a food allergy he talked as if he knew everything about raw and said "Well it's a shame because you can't do an elimination diet with raw" Ticked me off because in truth raw is the best thing to do an elimination diet with because you know exactly what's going into it, and there are so few ingredients you need really, compared to the thousands of things that are put into kibble. I also didn't like how he talked to my mother instead of me when clearly she was sitting behind me and I was holding Bella and talking to him. Even when I asked a question about what he was doing or something, he wouldn't tell me to answer, he'd tell my mother. I know I'm only 16, but I'm not stupid, I know a bit about dog care, and I'm also not deaf you don't have to talk to my mother as if she's my translator.
Also as someone said before a bit of bedside manor is nice, but he just overdid it. I had a legit concern about what would happen when Bella went to get spayed. Since she is my ESA and highly highly needed. She prevents and clams me during panic attacks, and just helps me with everything. I once went a month without her because I went to my dads house in California. I ended up having to go to the hospital because I was having so many panic attacks and was too scared to even leave my room to eat. So I made a comment to my mom about it, and he joked it off.
The hunt for a vet goes on.
