I don't know if these guys were on your list of a dozen places you called, but we have had good luck with them.

Who is to say... everyone might really be booked up that far in advance.  Covid protocols really slow the throughput at most places.  They come out and pick up your dog from the car and you wait - you don't go in.  Very inefficient.  But at least everyone is staying safe.   :scratch:

Ya it's been that way for a while snow. I'm actually surprised as much as your in sodak you don't see the vet there. According to a fella at work it's so much cheaper,  he's from tgat way and has family out there and still brings 4 dogs to Watertown for everything.

that's a thought bobber,since putting my dad in senior care I'm in the cities more than I want to visit with him as his days are numbered at 93,but maybe I'll check in with the local vet in chamberlain get to know him a little.My breeder told me years ago she doesn't endorce these meds like heart guard and topical tick solution's,to hard on the pup's organs,infact she said blood work spring and fall for heart worm as it takes 9 months for heart worm to mature to do damage in the host body,besides my pup is a house dog until hunting season,he rules the roost.but yeah couple vets I called do curb side service,petco has a vet come in on saturday's between 1-3pm,by app't,no wellness check just blood work for $20 ....I'm in.
