We went through VSH. Lucy had Dr. Burke for oncology and Dr. Aiken for her amputation surgery. It has been so frustrating not being able to go into any of the appointments.
In the UK they allow (at least at my vets) one person into each appointment (wearing masks of course) and only give appointments for non-routine matters, This seems like common sense to me, after all quite often during the examination there are questions that need answering.
What was nice with my cat is when she had her first x-rays they allowed both me and my wife into the room to talk to the vet and ask questions, which was really helpful as this was when cancer was pretty much confirmed and it really helped both of us to be there and to make it all “real” to us.
