    DefaultVet can't keep records

    I got our yearly check up reminder card for Chloe today. However, the vet cannot keep track of her records for beans. Actually it's probably the assistant. :-\ They never write down her shots and say every year she is due for something when she's not. About ready to switch now. Does anyone else ever have this problem? Good thing I keep seperate records, who knows what she'd be getting.

    If they can't keep track of something as simple as a record log I'd be switching. You can't give some meds together and who knows when they will put her on something and not know they did it and try somethign else that dosn't agree. Or not know about a previous condition they treated and it be related to something they are currently treating... That just tells me they are irresponsible.

    Yeah we'll be calling someone else Monday. It also doesn't help that another vet has joined the practice and they conflict with each other's advice. That can't be good.

    I definitely find another vet. We ran into that in the rescue when we were doing a vet check for someone. They had not kept their records and the vet didn't have them either.

    I would not go to any vet that couldn't keep track of my animal's records. To me that's just irresponsible.

    ditto what the others say, find another Vet.
    That is rediculous!

    I agree with the others.

    Find another vet.

    BUT,* JUST KEEPING GOOD RECORDS IS NOT A GUARANTEE OF A GOOD VET.

    There are many ways of being deficient and many ways of being proficient.

    An owner needs to be -- like you -- always questioning, always evaluating the quality of service.

    Settle for nothing less than the best you can find.* It's always cheapest in the long run as well as being the most soul gratifying.

    I like Giffin & Carlson's "Dog Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook" (and others) as a check on what's diagnosed and treated.

    Record keeping is very important, and whether its the vets fault or the office staffs, I would look into getting another vet, because how can the vet give good, correct care if they don't know what they've done in the past? I have a problem with trying to get the vet to get rid of records. Do we really need the records of the ex-wifes cat who has been dead for 12 years?

    Aside from the concerns raised in the other posts, it is an AVMA standard that must be kept. Not keeping accurate records could cause a Vet to lose their license. If you feel the Vet is not keeping records you should report them to the state Vet board.

    That is very unproffessional. I would definitely find a new vet.
