No joke. My home built first aid kit is primarily stocked from the feed store.
But really, it takes a while to get an appt with my regular doctor, hurry up and wait spend all day there and pay upfront, hours to get my script filled, pay again, a month to hear back on lab work, 3 more months to get a bill from the lab and pay again.... (Seriously, it's December and I just mailed a check for lab work done last May!)
I can take my dog to the vet tomorrow, have lab work done in-house in minutes, and walk out the door with script in-hand and the cost of it all total paid at once is about 1/3 of my doctor.
Why can't my doctor work as efficiently as my vet?
