We LOVE Our Vet! #ThankAVeterinarian Veterinarian Appreciation Day™

Hi all it's Cody! Today is a special day!! Today is the day I get to say "Thank You" to my Veterinarian, better known as "Dr.Smiley!"

Yeah, yeah, I know what you are thinking, "How in the world is this guy actually THANKING the Vet for the torture that they put us through?"

A Veterinarian's work is super hard, especially for MY Vet. Above all else, he has to put up with my babbling Mom. I know "Dr.Smiley" is thrilled when my Dad takes Dakota to the Vet and Mom doesn't come, because when I go to the Vet, Mom is there EVERY TIME and NEVER stops talking!

Don't get me wrong my furiends, I don't like being poked and jabbed either, but when I am home and stop to think about it, I know it is all for my own good. Dakota seems to LOVE going to the Vet as evidenced by the photo below (it's an old one, I don't use that carrier anymore, I have a nice new one!).

 I guess what Dakota loves about Dr.Smiley is the fact that he is kind, compassionate and caring, I have to admit, I love that about him too. Even if I don't look like I do!

He always gives my Mom good and honest advice.  There are MANY, MANY times that he has gone above and beyond, returning Mom's frantic calls,  even when he was on vacation.

I don't adore going to the Vet the way Dakota does, but I know it is for my own good, so, I want to take a moment and say THANK YOU "Dr.Smiley" WE LOVE YOU!!!

Love, Cody

  1. Although we have a regular clinic, we actually don't have a regular vet - can you believe it? We see different ones, depending on the day my human is able to take us in. They all seem nice.

    1. There are about eight Vets where we go, they are all great, but I stay with one whenever possible. That enables my "boys" to get to know one, and they are better able to know/understand my "boys." There have been times I have seen others, when my regular Vet wasn't there and yes they are all great but I think there are many, many benefits to trying to just stick with one. Especially when you find an incredible one as we have.

  3. We are the same as Summer, there are five vets in the practice that we go to. They are all good and very good with the cats. Vets are so important.

  8. Cody, you are so good about being on top of all these special days! I'm not sure I'd get any of our crew, canine or feline, to say they loved our vet, but I love both of ours because they take good care of them!

  12. It's impawtent to have a a VET that you like and trust!! Nobody (well...maybe woofies) likes to go to the VET but it's a necessary part of being a healthy kitty or woofie.

  13. What a lovely post for your vet ! We don't like to go either, even if we know that it's for our own good. Purrs

  14. Meowmy likes the vet clinic we go to now, but its always a diffurent one each time we visit...unless you ask fur a specific one. Which she does:)
    But...we are thinking of changing ovfur to the vet-man who has the staycation pawlace, and he also has a shelter in back of his office, newly built to help/house/provide home fur FLV+ kitties. Now that is a caring vet! We have decided that this will also be the shelter we support/volunteer and donate to when we are able.

    We are glad you love your vet, its so impawrtant to have a good relationship, afterall we are the advo-cat-es fur our furbabies!

    1. Yes there are a number of Vets at ours too, but we only see the others if our Vet is out of town or something. I think changing to the one with the staycation place for you is a pawesome idea! That IS a caring Vet!!!

  17. Oh my stars, we didn't know about this day!!! We have the best vet EVER!! Next year we'll have to remember this day for sure.

  18. We totally appreciate our vet. We found him nearly 20 years ago when we lived in a different city but we continue to drive 20+ miles to see him because we respect his opinion, technique, and approach to veterinary care.

  19. I like my vet but I don't like going to see her!!!

  20. Good vets are hard to find. We're glad you have a good one, Cody!

  21. Like myself, you really lucked out with your vet. I hate going and my vet looks like a little yuppie chick but she doesn't do unnecessary tests and listens to TW's concerns. We can also message her if something arises and she responds.

  22. Your vet sounds like a really special guy!
    Kudos to Dr Smiley on Thank a Vet Day!

  25. Having a good relationship with a vet is vital.. I care more about my relationship with my vet then I do my own doctor ;)
