Our barn started using a new vet last summer, and while we all love our old vet, there were some things that were slipping. He's always been super busy, but lately its almost impossible to get an appointment with him. My BO had a gelding she sold last year that had a heart murmur and he couldn't hear it. He's in his late 70s and, while I don't think he's planning on retiring anytime soon, our barn figured it was time to look for someone new. Luckily, everyone loves new vet; she takes the time to talk about issues and will text and email!
I felt like the absolute worst pony mom ever. Once the sedation wore off I stuffed Peebs full of treats, which he can now eat without hurting himself. He's going to be on a six month schedule for his teeth, and we already have the next appointment scheduled. Sorry Peebers!
