Our vets never have, maybe they should have. mum used to fogret nearly every one of Sohie's appointments lol. And sometimes she wouldn't tell other family members when she'd booked her in so we couldn't remind her either.

i've worked for three vet clinics and all of them have only called to confirm surgeries.

we actually don't have too many "i forgot" no-shows.

My vet sends me a postcard if someone is due for a shot, but I don't get reminder calls for appointments.

I work for a vet. We do NOT call to confirm. I'm not sure where or when we'd find the time. IMO, that is your responsibility to remember.

To me it says "if you need extra help on something, we don't really give." And I'm not really sure that's the person I want being my regular go-to vet.
If you dont feel they are the vet for you, I wouldnt give it another thought.

Honestly, I have left vets, groomers, hairstylists, etc for much much less... things other people dont agree with or laugh at, or think I am generally just a little nuts... but sometimes you just get that "feeling" and the best thing you can do is follow it!

Good Luck finding a vet you like... I am currently on that mission too.

Obviously some vets offices do have the time, mine also call for follow ups (as in how is Solo feeling today). I love my vets not only cause they are great people (all the people in the office are fantastic), reasonably priced, they also really really care about their clients. They go that extra mile, and I really appreciate it.

Yes it might be my responsibility to remember, but I love it when they call to remind me of an upcoming booked appt.

Our vet does. In addition to the confirmation call they have a system that generates an email to remind you of when to give the dewormer meds. Thay also have a website that you can log into to see your animal's medical records along with ordering heartworm meds and flea control.

Can someone please kill this flea before it jumps on Lola
