i love Dr V - always have. With that said, I was concerned that the atmosphere and overall demeanor of the office was SO different. It wasn't friendly like I'm used to. The office used to be busy and nuts which is what a Vet's office should be. Everyone spoke to each other and it was understood that critters can be a handful. Also, I was quite surprised that the parking lot was empty. To me, that is a signal of distress. I recognized no one and I think that is strange. I had absolutely no negative encounters with anyone and the technician with Carson's exam was really sweet. I am disappointed that Dr V didn't check Carson's teeth - in the past he has always commented on how great they look but that did not happen. I am remiss in not realizing he didn't check Carson's teeth, I should have realized it. I get nervous when I bring him in. Carson has some bad breath issues and I think at 10 years old that makes since.
