    So unlike GPs that are strictly regulated there are practices that are no subject to the same scrutiny. So they are being run like a business.

    There are times you will get a decent vet who will put the animal first. Which is brilliant band the way it should be.

    I think to avoid sub-standard care all practices should be under the same regulations. But unfortunately they are not. As a pet owner it is out responsibility to look for the "approved" practices. Which I do! As my pets health is incredibly important to me.
    This is so scary! Iím glad you at least have a way to know whether they are regulated!

    Vets are like doctors here... same amount of schooling, and they are as strictly regulated as physicians... like anything else there will be shady characters doing shady things however itís pretty easy to tell who those people are.

    I'm guessing it is America you guys are talking about. Sorry if I'm off the mark as I'm just assuming.

    Funny enough only two universities. I think three have now been approved for our veterinary medicine degree to hold it's own in America after sitting an additional exam.

    So essentially they do disregard the other veterinary medicine degrees. As they are not seen to be in the same league as veterinary medicine schools.

    Just goes to show how stringent the US is! The way in should be in my book.

    Unfortunately it is not the same here. Which is worrying.

    I would never preach or push advise on anyone and how they look after their pets. The one thing I insist to friends and family is they go to an acredited practice. As that is really important after seeing non-acredited practices.

    I honestly was not trashing the profession, I can't stress enough how much I respect it. I have friends who are becoming vets and worked closly with them. They have been amazing and some have restored faith after what I have seen.

    Maybe it is run differently in this country. As I've seen things that have made me question what is really going on. Has made my friends in training question what's is going on.

    No one should be questioning things behind the scenes of a veterinary practice.

    To be fair it is unfortunate that I did see those things and hear other stories. I was disheartened by a profession I have always respected.

    Which is why I'm glad I've met some decent vets in my life.

    I'm not the best with expressing myself with written words. I believe I have mentioned this in another thread before.

    So yes I was a bit excessive with the words I used. But I didn't mean to generalise to all vets.

    You are right... I am in Canada, it's a similar thing here. It's hard to even imagine that they don't take vet medicine as seriously in other countries... talk about us being privileged!
