As a result of this wonderful web site I am learning many new things. Consequently, I have asked my veterinarian some questions that I otherwise would not have asked such as: Before putting my 8 month old Maltese under anethesia would they please do a pre-op work up to make sure that the anethesia will flush from his system safely? Also, is the Leptospirosis vaccine safe for my Maltese? As a result of my having the nerve to ask questions, my vet had his assistant call me and tell me "If I was not confident in his skills to take my dogs somewhere else." I am very upset about his misinterpretation of my intentions as I HAD been referring many people to him. Why are some doctors so threatened by their patients being a little bit informed? I guess in my case a little bit of knowledge was worse than blind faith. Any comments?
