Booking an appointment with your family veterinarian has become an increasingly difficult task these days. In fact, many professionals are ringing the alarm bells and calling it a full-blown crisis. Between massive backlogs, fewer hours, and long waitlists, pet owners are wondering what they can do when they need help or have questions about their pet’s health.
