I live in a rural area a vet is 150 miles away. One way. So I don't think it's responsible to have a pet so far from care. What if something bad happened? There was a vet that came up a couple of times a week, but she had a baby and can't do it anymore. If there is anyone out there who knows a vet that wants to live in rural Nevada, please get in touch. There's work here.

You can learn pet first aid and cpr. Plenty of people live much further than 150 miles from a vet and have pets.

Yes, there are tons of pets..just figured they made the drive. Thanks for the great idea. My little dog got kicked in the head by a wild burro and lost an eye, but I lived 25 miles from the first vet. She saved him. So I'm just afraid of stuff like that.

I have no idea how other people avoid having pets, because all our cats are rescues who showed up uninvited.
