    Default Bad vet experience with new puppy

    Hello everyone! I just need to vent about the experience with the vet... I took my 9 week old pup to the regular practice I go to, but to a different doctor. As soon as she got in the room she was basically scolding me on how the breeding of bulldogs is inhumaine. Then she said Europe is trying to ban the breeding of them. She said they are "walking disasters." Then I said he is on royal canin from the Breeder and I am going to switch him since the food is awful. She said royal canin is great and her dogs are on it! Then she began to talk about nutrition and how corn is fine for animals and by products are good too because if dogs are in the wild they will be eating all the other parts of an animal. So after all the bashing I heard from her she then ended the conversation with, you better start a savings account now for this dog..... what a disaster!! I was a vet tech for 10 years before becoming a mom and I just played dumb... I couldn't believe everything she was saying!! Yes I am new to the breed ( I always had pomeranians.). I am well aware of health issues they can have, which is why I did my best to find a reputable Breeder. Sorry for the long post!

    all of the above!!!!!! I would like to say I would have given her 'what for' but I probably would have walked out crying... I
    happened upon this breed as my so always wanted and against my better judgement, well, I walked in and there he was............ The best thi9ng that ever happened to us!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are the sweetest clownish loving's hearts that bring so much joy... I do hope they start breeding for better health but we are all doing our best to promote that. I LOVE this breed!! And I DONT like that vet!!!!!!!!!!! what a bummer piece of crap!!! I'm so glad you came here to vent ! you have a beautiful babie, enjoy! and find a bulldog vet that loves them too!!! I was so scarred at first knowing of the chances,,,,,,,,,,, She would have sent me to the loonie bin!!!

    What a negative person and negative experience you had. She shouldn't be a vet. Thankfully there are some good vets out there, and I hope your regular vet is better. Go with your instincts regarding the food, Royal Canin is not considered a good food, and there are much better choices. Please post some pictures of your new baby, we'd love to see them.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    I couldn't believe anyone would even say any of this stuff! She never once said oh he's cute or anything like that. Just looked at him in disgust! I am slowly switching him to Fromm. Here are a couple pics of him. -img_1488-jpg
