I notice more and more of these "clinics" like VCA and PetSmart shop clinics, where the vets come and go frequently. Many are "chains". Very different from the "one vet" who knows my pets and has cared for them for years (usually for life). Other people, I work with, just take the dog to the nearest office when they need something and have zero long term relation with a vets office. I wonder how many people do which?
