Iatrogenesis - learn this word. I just learned it Iatrogenesis - learn this word. I just learned it recently, but it’s an important concept to understand, especially when you take your pup to the veterinary clinic. (Not ALL veterinarians practice this way, but, in my experience, most do.)⁣
⁣
I took Althea for a routine health check today. Primarily bc she’s flying on an airplane soon & we need a clean bill of health, proof of shots, etc., No big deal. Happy to do it. ⁣
⁣
Althea is thankfully, at the moment, quite a healthy dog. I’m grateful everyday, for I know that this is now & deteriorating health can happen suddenly, quickly & without warning. What I would NOT expect is for a practitioner of veterinary medicine to expedite this. I repeat: i’m not talking conspiracies here. This is what happened:⁣
⁣
I was placed into a room. Was told she needed Bordetella vax. I declined. Why? Bc she doesn’t get boarded. Whatever. She doesn’t need it…. Then, i was encouraged to put a monthly dose of anti-mosquito/heartworm medicine in her body … she doesn’t need it… it is a fact (not speculative) that heartworm from mosquitoes is rare in California… then her ears were checked… they weren’t great (but i knew that) … they wanted to give her a bolus of antibiotics (i declined, will do antibiotics & earwash, like usual, last time she got sick from the bolus)… then… she left… and the 4th assistant walked in the room & told me they wanted to scrape her inner ear & do bloodwork. For what? The infection was already diagnosed… but the blood? So as to rule out heartworm… before I gave her a heartworm pill before I take her to florida …⁣
⁣
I declined all of it. But… I just want to post this bc I don’t believe that going to the Vet should be like buying a f#%*ing used automobile. ⁣
⁣
It makes me very sad to know that this is career that seems to have been sullied by a serious agency problem. I have no problem with people trying to make a living but… go fly a kite 🪁 if you want to use my baby girl as your annuity. JFC
