Why does the vet take so long these days?
- Pet ownership surged 70% in the pandemic, resulting in a sudden demand on vets
- Procedures to keep vulnerable staff & clients safe like wiping down surfaces between each client
- Staff shortages – Fewer people doing more work
Your vet and remaining staff are working overtime every day, often without meals or breaks, so pets can get the care they need.
Please be patient and kind ♥
