I actually Love my vet. She loves Vegas...she has his magazine and several of his cards. She emails him (uh...ME) and often calls checking on him. She knows her stuff too. I asked her about coconut oil....she told me she always gets asked about it and she doesn't recommend it. She said...it's an oil and it's solid at room temperature. Guess what happens when you soften it up and feed it to your dog? It hardens up...IN their arteries. (I had already bought a huge thing from Costco!!) She HATES Trifexis. And...if something is wrong with Vegas or O that I can diagnose....she will call a Rx into my pharmacy. If I can't answer her questions (like this last ear infection) she asks to see him and gives me what I need.
