We get the question a lot about how we handle Cash’s vet situation living on the road full-time. It was really difficult with while he was a puppy because he had to go in for vaccinations every few weeks and each time he needed vaccinations, we were in a new location. We did a lot of research before deciding to get a puppy because we were very concerned about this aspect of having a dog on the road.
After all our research, we decided to use Banfield Pet Hospital as our Veterinarians of choice. Our main reason for this is their use of digital medical records. We’re simply able to make an appointment at whatever location we’ll be near and they’ll have his records already. We never have to worry about calling and having them transferred to a new Vet. We never have to give all our information to a new Vet. All we have to do is make the appointment and show up.
This has been a huge life saver for us. Cash has been to the Vet in San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, Palm Coast, Jacksonville, and Phoenix already in his first year and a half of life. Puppies need so many vaccinations to keep them healthy and Banfield has taken care of us every step of the way.
Plus, they’re located in most PetSmart locations so we know we’ll always be able to find them just about anywhere in the country we may end up. This is so reassuring for us to almost always know we’ll have a vet wherever we are. Not to mention, Cash enjoys running around the store to find new toys and treats before his appointments, too! 🙂
