Picture1If you're like most of us, you choose a veterinarian and you stick with him, right? Whether it's through convenience or "because we've always gone there" or any number of other reasons, our guest blogger writes about her experience with switching vets. 

"We've been going to the same veterinary office for our various generations of cats and now the dog since 1995. I can't say we ever really liked them, but they were close to home and that's a plus when you have assorted critters who hate riding in the car.

    We LOVE LOVE LOVE our vets at Mercy Vet on Mercer Island. The Woman drives us 45 minutes one way so that we can continue to see them. Yes, there are closer vets for an emergency and Mercy Vet has good working relationships with them. They specialize in complementary health and no one else does what they do. Because many of their clients, like us, are far away, they do a lot of work via phone and email so we don’t have to get stressed out by the trip. They are absolutely amazing. Oh, but they are so amazing everyone loves them so they are not accepting new patients.

    I adore my vet — we’ve been with him since he was a “puppy” and we have followed him as his career has grown. I would drive anywhere for him. We have an emergency clinic nearby but I hope to never have to use it. We love Dr. Gloates, see?

    I was pretty neutral with our current vet and when I looked over my last bill I noticed he was way overpriced. I’m now in the process of changing vets.
