Hi. I need to discuss my pony's medical conditions with my vet. She is almost impossible to contact by phone although she does reply to my emails. She did the 6 month check on my pony a few weeks ago. I was in the middle of asking her all my questions when she received & answered a phone call. She then said she would "have to go". How rude I thought but assumed it was a call out to an emergency. I have now thought about making an appointment to see her during the standard surgery hours so that I can finish asking all my questions which hopefully will lead to a proper discussion of my pony's condition. Has anyone else had the same experience? What would a vet charge for a consultation during surgery hours?
