Smart consumers are advised to avoid vets who practice on a rickety card table to the sound of a squeaking hamster wheel.

No talented veterinarian with a shred of professionalism or self respect would stoop to that.

These traveling Vet's second-rate vaccine is notoriously warm, you should be aware that lack of refrigeration inactivates the vaccine within an hour.

Shotvet / Petstore Vet exams are uselessly superficial. Try this: After the shots are given and they wave you on to the register, ask them: "Did you notice the lump under the tail? Are his nails short enough? Did you feel any enlarged lymph nodes? Ha ha ha ha! BOY do they squirm! 

They don't have to care about shot reactions, and they aren't prepared to help you if it happens. They're standing behind that table for their percentage. Expected to 'get 'em in, and get 'em out' as fast as possible and move on before the county shows up to ask for their city business license and state veterinary license. Which (according to ethicists at the University of Georgia), they seldom have. This is an on-going regulatory "thing" with the State of Georgia at least.

Think about it: These vets went to college for 8 years and earned a doctorate to travel around and work in a pet store. Wouldn't you love to know their sad story? I bet it comes down to money, and difficulties with steady employ in a legitimate practice.

The issues surrounding card table veterinarians and their licenses to practice in your state are hotly contested right now, but in the meantime, Shotvet continues to sling those needles.

Shotvet will vaccinate for whatever you ask them for, whether it's a legitimate risk or not. And they'll vaccinate any animal in front of them whether it's safe for the animal or not. They have no way of knowing your dog had an auto-immune disorder three years ago, and they have no idea if your pet requires a pre-med to avoid reactions.

And just WAIT til you need shot records for boarding in three months! You'll probably end up having to get a whole set of shots again just to prove your dog is up-to-date and get into boarding facilities.

Here's where ShotVet.net developed its business model.

I suppose these reviews tell the whole story. Shotvets kicking dogs? Wow! 

"Lies every step of the way. Interfered with pets getting medication on time. Pets got heartworm test and we were told to use 1800 pet meds. This is last weekend of September. We try to go rough 1800 pet meds and the order never goes through because the shotvet people have lost the records. They said they were 30 Days behind because f hurricane. They said they would send records over night. Then they call and ask me to buy through them and promise to price match and have it there in 4-5 business days. 9 days later they finally generate a label to Ship. Lie about it."

"Veterinarian threatened to kick my dog; threw open bordetella vaccine at me. I took my dogs to the ShotVet clinic in Palm Bay on Sunday, 5/14/17. Robert M****** DVM, threatened to kick one of my dogs. He proceeded to throw an open tube of the bordetella vaccine at me, forcing me to administer the vaccine to my other dog. "
