    death threats? surely that's unacceptable even over there. yikes.

    Actually - that's probably something the police could deal with. Sometimes people don't understand that the same law that applies face to face, applies to people posting to an Australian internet forum in Australia. And then there is the problem of using a telecommunications device to make threats... also illegal.

    It's a nice change... I tell you what, some of the old grumps on the gardening forums... don't ask for tips about their tomatoes!
    I entirely agree, that has been my experience too.

    Isn't the dog on vet seats thing really a non issue? Hmmm, wonder its significance in the scheme of life.
    If someone is so upset about it either way then why not just change vets or is a few kms further away too far?
    I have changed vets from different towns. Read the thread over there..the words..build a bridge and get over it come to mind. Hopefully it won't be reignited again.

    I gotta agree Di Dee

    It's really not worth the fuss it got or having such strong opinions about it. Either way I don't feel strongly enough about having or not having my dog or anyone else's dog on the seat to pick a fight or start a thread about it.

    I was quite fascinated by how strongly people felt about it.

My GSD girl wasn't causing any trouble and over the next few months other people had their dogs on seats plus a cat carry case and nothing was said.

    They put up these little blue signs "Seats are for people not dogs,no cat carry cases on seats either". Went there this week and saw people with dogs on the seats and nothing was said to them... these rules should apply to everyone not just a few. The seats are vinyl and there's plenty of them...maybe I should get them to check my fingernails in case I damage the seats too.

    The staff are not as nice as they use to be...when you come in your asked...Name...What's you dog here for...Take a seat.
    It's a shame because the vets are good...just the staff that need an attitude adjustment or a change of vet maybe.
    Anyway has this ever happened to you at your vets and what did you do.
    Where I work we have no problem with dogs or cats sitting on our waiting room chairs, we often take photos if they do and put them on Facebook coz we think its cute.
    But yeah one rule should apply to all, if there are rules. Sounds absolutely ridiculous to me.

    To me, it is up to whomever owns any premises that our dogs are at, that have the say in what dogs, animals, kids, can or can not do. Not everyone is going to feel as we do or do or not in a business or home setting. It is polite to do as they wish in their place and the rules are what we wish over places that we have the control. Dogs may not be allowed up on the furniture at my vet clinic (if I owned one) or home but may be at yours. No one has the right to demand otherwise. People, especially now days, feel that their wishes should trump every one else's.

    Yes it's an old thread...but they still have the same attitude the signs and Mrs Cranky too. A few weeks ago I went there to get some more drops for Chloe...I showed the receptionist the container and said can I have some more (I feel like Oliver Twist)...to which she replied "you didn't get that here because it doesn't have a label on it"...I've been going there for 7 yrs.

    I said "the vet didn't put a label on it" to which she replied "we always put a label on them"...then she asked if the drops were for my other dog...WTF. I told her my other dog hasn't got an ear infection...why don't you check your records. She then took the container out the back and was gone for about 5 mins...most likely speaking to a vet then came back with the drops with a label on it and said "you should have brought the dog back".

    We'd only had Chloe a few months when I discovered she had an ear infection...I have never had a dog with an ear infection before so I took Chloe to the vet who said some dogs have re-occurring ear infections and if this happens just come and get some more drops...which I did and look what bloody happened. To make matters worse...about a week later I realised Chloe didn't have an ear infection after all...I'll look for another vet me thinks.
