Q. Why are you only open 8-12 when other vet clinics are open all day?
We are not totally driven by money (but we do want to feed our families) While we know this is inconvenient for some it gives us the best chance to keep everyone safe and remain open.
Even though we close the doors at noon doesn't mean we aren't working. We usually perform our surgeries after the door is locked.
Other veterinary clinics have multiple veterinarians. If one gets sick, heaven forbid, there is a potential backup vet. Here, Dr. Pattberg is the only one. If he gets sick then we have no vet. We also only have to pay for only one veterinarian's salary, so we don't have the pressure to have to stay open all day.
