Just a side note: Evidence of a good vet. I make an Emergency call on a weekend, don't hear back in 40 min. Understandable, it's baby season. So I call again. This time, the practice owner calls me and asks if I can wait about 1-2 hrs, he had to bring in an extra vet for the weekend they were so busy, and both were out. If I needed someone right away, he personally would call another clinic (his competitor) to see if they could come out. Since it wasn't somethiing that couldn't wait a little bit (Odie had puncture wounds and I wanted them flushed, but I didn't want to wait till Monday) I said I'd wait. I went over what I was planning on doing, and he OK'd it. (he's a small animal vet, and was 300 miles away on vacation when he called me. Appearently the answering service calls him directly if the first service call isn't answered.) The on-call vet came out a few hours later, and all was taken care of.
I have yet to see the bill, and that was last spring. When I asked he winked and said "I don't remember having anyone out at your place".
