you saw them at the local mall pet store. I am a sucker for puppies so I go to our mall's pet store to look at them. One day while I was there I saw our vet in the back doing check- ups on the puppies. For some reason that didn't sit well with me. Then I heard a staff person tell someone that their first vet visit is free. I'm wondering if this is a ploy by our vet to get more clients. Even if it isn't, I feel by her being the pet store vet she is condoning the purchase of puppies from a pet store. What do others think?
