I only have the Vet out for emergencies or teeth. I give shots and worming myself.

I only have the vet out for emergencies. Even though we're in PA we don't do rabies vaccs, and we do our own shots and worming. Mild colics we handle ourselves, and *knock on wood* we very rarely have an injury severe enough for the vet. I get teeth checked once a year, floated if needed, but the dentist does it.

Generally the only thing I will have the vet out is for coggins, health checks, and emergencies I can't handle.

All the other stuff in between I do myself.

I guess I should feel thankful that I don't have to call him for much, but it's just odd because so many people talk about how expensive their care is and I was wondering if I'm missing something important. Thanks!
No you're not missing a thing. You're doing exactly what most of us do. Something special, or emergency's only other time I see mine other than the annual vaccs/coggins thing
