What A Nice Guy! A "Good Vet" Story...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I had to re-order some Interferon for Geronimo & Winchester's FIP treatments, b/c being the klutz that I am I accidently dropped an entire bottle of the stuff onto the floor. When I went to give them their dosage, they tried spitting it back out - and I've never had any problems giving them the stuff with either one of them: it's actually one medicine that they don't mind taking, and take without fighting me. So I realized that there might be something wrong with the Interferon (like maybe a bad batch, or maybe the Interferon got switched with something else). So I called my vet to discuss the issue with him: he didn't know why they didn't want to take the stuff, although he did say that he had to get the Interferon from a different manufacturer b/c the previous source quit making the stuff. He actually tasted the stuff himself, to see if it was "off" or anything. He said that it had a sweet taste to it, and it shouldn't have. So he proceeded to call the manufacturer to find out what was going on, and they told him that they had added a sweetener to the Interferon (apparently assuming that a cat would take it easier that way). Well apparenlty Geronimo or Winchester don't have a sweet tooth, and want nothing to do with the new batch. So my vet, being the nice guy that he is, re-ordered the "regular" Interferon - at no charge to me.
(which is a God-send, b/c that stuff is expensive! and he
knows we're struggling financially right now). I offered to bring back the "icky" batch so he wouldn't lose any money, but he said it wasn't necessary and to just dump it. What a prince!

This is just one of the reasons why I continue to use him as my vet. Not only is he a GOOD vet and one whom you can trust, he'll also go out of his way to correct a problem if one arises, and not take advantage of your situation.

I salute you, Dr. C.!

Your vet apparently knows one thing many forget - a good review from a customer is valuable. You've just given him a good review on here and will likely tell friends as well. Whether he fully intended it that way or not, his good deed will come back to him.

You are lucky to have such a great vet!

Mine are pretty damn awesome too.

I like my GP, but I love my vets.

I also love my vet, before trav came here, i was nearly bankrupted. My vet understood this and she told me that the cats health came first and that i would pay her the money when i could. Well three months later i repayed her. We have alot of mutual trust.

I just hope our next vet in Australia will be as wonderful and so caring with cats like this one
