After the loss of Flame, I have taken the step (hesitantly I may add) of changing my vet. We have been with the same practise for over 10 years and have had a fantastic relationship with everyone in the practise, vets, nurses, reception staff and even the cleaner who always took time to stop and speak to the dogs if they were in for hospital care. I suppose we got used to having our own vets look after our animals 24/7 and we could pick up the phone at any hour without thinking twice about it. Due to changes in there out of hours and holiday cover I have now registered my dogs with Valley vets in Kilmarnock who are a family run practise and are there 24/7 for there clients and there pets. Ayla will be the first visitor to the new vet when she comes home, a full health check and her booster.
