    I wasn't referring to national differences. I would feel the same if I were in the US!!

    I didn't even realize you weren't in the US. What I was referring to is that we live in a somewhat small town and most of the Drs here are on the younger side or very short term. He has been here about 4 years but his partner in his office I wouldn't take my dog to.

    I have sent a message to the one in Texas and hubby and I discussed it with my daughter that if we need to we can go down one day and spend the night, go to the Dr the next day and spend another night before coming home. I will check in the one in OKC as that is doable.

    The only reason we even went to the one we did was because he was local but my husband went to him a couple of years ago with trouble in his knee replacement that was done by the guy's partner. Didn't like him then and don't like him now.

    Well in that case, you are wise to consider your plan.
