I once brought my bichon into an emergency vet clinic. The doctor took her temperature, looked at me and asked if I knew what a dogs temperature SHOULD be. I admitted that I did not, thinking he was just going to explain what hers was versus what it should be, he pulled out a laptop in front of me to google 'what should a dogs temperature be'.
My normal vet has given me his home and cell phone number for emergencies. He spent hours on the phone with me last New Years day when my doberman was suddenly paralyzed and I didn't know what to do. (No charge). When my boy sadly had to be put down, I called on a Saturday after hours. He and his staff waited AFTER HOURS for me to get there to make sure he didn't suffer further on the weekend.
Vets are not created equal. Don't put up with one who doesn't make you and your dog feel completely comfortable in every way.
