    I say stay with the original because to me the Emergency thing is really important. My dog is…special and likes to hurt himself or cause trouble with other dogs so we have had to take him to our Emergency vet clinic multiple times. Its reassuring to know that there is always someone there to call or go to. For example, my dog was playing with another dog who was startled and bit him hard on the nose. We had to take him to the emergency vet and get him looked at. As a puppy he didn’t realize how small he was and in playing with big dogs he would often get run over, literally. Well one time another dogs nail went into his eye and his eye was bleeding. So to me the emergency thing trumps all.

    I’d stay with your original vet, because like you said, you trust them. It sounds like even though they are crazy busy and it can take a while for a routine visit, they do have those emergency options there for you. To me, the 24 hour line would be a big plus, because if mine is going to get into trouble, she is going to do it at 2 am.

    The returning the kittens really turns me off from the second vet…Personally, I wouldn’t have gone back after a comment like that about a treatable problem.
