My vet was very hostile when I tok my goat to him on Tuesday morning. I told him that I thought she had bloat because I had someone feeding for me over the weekend and I think she was over-fed and there was a possiblility that she had gotten into some horse feed. Also, she wasn't giver hay and I think he didn't water them either. He asked about the white powder on her mouth. I informed him that I had given her baking soda and he sneered and chuckled, oh di that work for you? I told him yes, that she had belched loudly and passed gas after getting the baking soda and her stomach went down. I also told hm that I gave her a vitamin b shot. He was going to worm her with Ivomectin and I told him that I worm monthly during the warm months and every 6 weeks in the cold months with the same wormer. He asked how much I was giving and I told him and then he preceded to lecture me on how difficult it was to do the calculations for meds all while figuring on his calculator to come up with the same dosage that I give. He did a fecal anyway and she was worm free. He then asked that if I knew everything, then why was I there. I told him I didn't know everything, but I try to stay informed and do what I can and I use the vet when something happens that I can't handle. I told him that I have several animals and I either have to do routine care myself or they would get no care so to financial limitations. This morning he left me a voicemail that he would no longer treat my animals unless I brought them to him for all routine treatment. He doesn't even do barn visits, so he wants me to bring 6 gaots to him ever month for worming as well as do my hoof trimming, vaccines, etc. Is this man crazy!!!! Has anyone else ever had a vet refuse to treat their animals because they provide routine care themselves?
