Hi!! I am in search of a new vet.  I took Oakley in a couple of weeks ago for his regular checkup and shots, and they have a new vet now. Oakley was not impressed.  At all.  And frankly, I wasn't either.  So, I'm looking for a new vet.  Do you go to a good one?  I've heard some really, really good things about Pam Truman at Metcalf South Animal Hospital at 105th &  Metcalf in Overland Park, but that's a good 20 minutes from my house.  If you know of any good ones, will you let me know?

Thanks!!!

Re: Calling KrazieKC to the I need a new vet Phone Please!!!

So what's 20 minutes from your house?  It takes me that long to just get down the mountain I live on and then I still have to go another 5 miles to the vet's.  It's worth the distance and it's your baby and you have someone highly recommended.  I say go for the lady Pam Truman.

If you have any boxer clubs nearby they can give you a recommendation too.

I'm with Nano on this..I live somewhat out of town and it takes me a good 20 minutes to get anywhere..Within reason, I will travel out of my way if it's something that will benefit my babies :)

I agree, I have about 50 vets all w/ in a 0-10 mile radius (one right down my block) but i'll drive to the other end of the island just b/c i love and trust our vet's office so much.

Re: Calling KrazieKC to the I need a new vet Phone Please!!!

I am not there so I dont really "know" any of them....But...referrals are the best source of advice....I have always said a happy client will tell a few and an unhappy one will tell everybody!!!  :)  I drive more then 20 minutes to get to work and I have people who come to us who drive more then 20 miles....So, I would say it is worth checking out....

I also met a Doctor in a conference that I think was from your town, but I can not think of the clinic name he is at....His name was Dr. Greg Starr, I was impressed by him.....Maybe google him or look him up in the phone book....He may be further away then you are...

I take my boys to Eudora Animal Hospital, it's 30 minutes from Overland Park though.  I grew up there and it's really reasonably priced.  A lot of people from Lawrence bring there dogs into Eudora becuase the vets are so amazing and friendly.
