Evening all, good wishes especially to those bereaved.
Took Minnie to the vets today for her booster.
Arrived early, about 13.55, our appointment was 2.15.
Receptionist said that if the 2.00 appointment arrived on time they would be seen first. Fair enough.
So, they arrived, with a large young terrier type dog. Receptionist was on the phone.
Dog proceeded to cock his leg on the desk. I raised an eyebrow, they remarked "male dogs, who'd have them!" Then said he was a rescue, only had him for a week.
When they were able to speak to the receptionist, I thought they might mention the "incident", but no.
So, the vet came to call them in, they were explaining that he was a rescue dog, had a few issues etc.
They came out, Minnie & I were called in.
I noticed a large yellow puddle on the consulting room floor pointed it out to the vet, who cleaned it up. I also told him that the dog had previously peed in the reception area.
Minnie jabbed, flea dropped and wormed (saves me dealing with that for the little baggage!) so we go back to the desk to pay.
Please bear in mind that the couple with the peeing dog would have already gone to pay after their appointment.
I mentioned to the reception staff that the dog had cocked his leg, they immediately set to with a clean up.
Now, this is a rural practice, with a notice asking customers to leave boots/shoes in the lobby (human customers, presumably, don't think they have many patients with footwear)
A farmer had come in to collect wormer for his dog, and had indeed left his boots in the lobby, hope he didn't step in the puddle of pee left behind!
I appreciate dogs will have "accidents" at the vets, and no doubt the staff are used to dealing with them, but don't you think those owners should have told both the reception staff and the vet?
