Dog owner discovers NNY’s vet shortage

It’s important for pet owners to learn some basic first aid to help their animals in event of an emergency. Pexels

Dear Aggie: My dog hurt his paw the other day and there were no vets available! What should I do in an emergency?

With the north country being home to pets as large as cows and as tiny as mice, there’s a very high demand for veterinarian services. I have two pets, and almost all of my coworkers have at least one dog. When I first moved to this area, finding a vet that was accepting new patients proved to be extremely difficult. Even now that we have a regular vet, making an appointment can be a hassle, sometimes having to book months out!
