Vet wont touch pit

My cousin went to get his pit fixed and the vet refused to touch her bc she is a pitbull. so he has to go out of town and find a vet that will see her. i think its just sad that a vet wont touch a dog just bc that its a pit. looks like they are trying to make it hard to own a pit in my town and i live in a very small town. is there a way to fight this for ppl that lives in areas like this?

I am not sure what you can do, prejudice against this breed is everywhere and dog breeds aren't protected from these things the same way as say, racism with humans. You have to learn to have a thick skin when you own this breed because ignorant people have serious prejudices against them and aren't afraid to let you know about.

Personally, I would not want my dogs going to a vet that didn't like pit bulls. So what do you want to accomplish? I doubt you would want to do something that would force the vet to treat the dog regardless of his dislike of the breed. This could end up with something accidentally happening to your dog while it is being treated and you could end up with a dead dog.

Just find a vet that loves your dog(s) regardless of the breed. Vet visits can be unpleasant as it is but having a vet and their staff croon over your pit is something I am grateful that we have at our vet.

Yeah we've all ran into that up here. I've got a lot of friends that have pit bulls and when they take their dog to the vet at a young age or period most of the time they have to tell them it isn't a pit bull that its something totally different like an American Bulldog or a Boxer, some vets just refuse to deal with the breed because of the bad publicity its gotten due to the media.

American Veterinary Medical Association

or whoever that vet is affiliated with...

That is just sad!

Good idea! I remember when my mom worked for different vet clinics as an assistant and she used it in her defense that even vets knew pit bulls were bad. Luckily I've had no problems with Helena getting care.

I had a vet like that as well but it was with my Rottie that I had. He would not see him unless I put a muzzel on him. Needless to say I found a new vet. He didnt like them because he got bit by one so unless you put one on he refused.

yea i prolly wont be going to him when i get my pup. hopefully i can find a good one that will see me. but it might be hear say but i got a friend that has about 3 pits and a police told give him bout a year and he will have the dogs banned in our county and i dont want to see this happen. he said this a couple of months ago so maybe he was just upset of ppl fighting them in the county. bc last year i think my neighbors was training thier dogs to fight bc you could go on my back porch and hear them counting down and clapping and yelling. and after that i left to take my gf home and we seen a pit laying in the road above my house looked like it lost and they dumped it, it was all beat up. i havent heard em in a while so maybe the police has calmed down and they wont ban em

You should report dog fighting if you think its going on not ignore it. The cop your friend talked to was just pissy and trying to be a badass like he is single handily going to ban all pits in the whole country. Do you live in Hollywood?
