Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Thank-you for requesting me. I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I cannot speak on the legal issue, but can tell you my experience. In the time I have worked in offices there always have been a Vet or Vet tech that brings their dog or cat to the office. Most Clients know them as office mascots. Many of the Vets use these animals as blood donors. If the clinic owner does not object, there is usually no problem as long as the animal is well behaved and does not cause a problem. Professional is in the eyes of the clinic owner. In the clinics I have worked in I have worked Corporate as well as Private upscale offices and there has always been an office pet in the clinic. If you need Legal advice on this, I can send the question to legal when we are done. I hope I have addressed your concerns. Please let me know if You need further information on this.
