I don't have access to vets every time there is an emergency. Our closest vet service is a 30 minutes away but they don't service my area even if I paid extra(i asked). The only vet service that does is in another state. 2hours away from my farm. And sometimes they just can't get out there. If there is a storm in my area we are on our own. Thankfully we have some nice vets because everytime they come out they teach us something new... even if it doesn't pertain to why they came out. Example. Like how to handle deep wounds if they can't come and how you can use butterfly stitches to close it until they get there. Which could be days depending on weather. And the list goes on.
So please share why and how you have access to your vet... I am really interested. I think it helps understand where everyone is coming from.
