Vets have a plan for after-hours emergencies

Dear Editor,

I would like to respond to the letter that was published about the vets in this valley.

There are always two sides to the story, and in this case, only one side was heard.

The local vets are as hardworking a bunch as you can find, and they shouldn’t be accused of not being available. It is very frustrating, yes, to have an emergency in the middle of the night, but understandably, vets have to sleep, too!

The animal that was written about before was very well taken care of at Red Hill, and hopefully everyone will understand that care is available for emergencies.

In fact, there is going to be a new “emergencies only” clinic opening at Red Hill within the next month or so, and will be open after hours only. They will be staffed with people whose only job is to sleep in the day and be ready for emergencies all night, with a fully equipped vet clinic. We hope that this will provide enough care for anyone who has emergencies in this valley.

Thank you,

Teresa Fish
