    Contacting a journo is a very good idea. They are always on the lookout for local interest stories and this one has pathos and the potential for some cute pics of your dog (maybe even you!). You never know, if enough people agree with you it could start a bit of a campaign and an enterprising vet will see a good business opportunity as well as providing an important local amenity.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

I think the letter ought to be more focused on encouraging local vets to consider going 24 hour, or encouraging some new business to do it. That would be a specific solution-focused letter, vs. just talking about how bad the problem is.

    I agree with you both. It might be worth it to talk to her original vet and convince him to please let her get in touch with him in an emergency and he can charge her extra (normally emergency vets do anyway).

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.
