I believe overall vets are a LOT nicer people than most human doctors. They don't go into that line of work for the prestige or the money. I have
dealt with lots of vets, a few were bad but a few were truly excellent. My experiences with human doctors have been MUCH less satisfactory.
Regarding it being a "back door". No way. The scary thing about companion animal medicine is that it is NOT tracked. In the case of the pet food
poisonings a couple of years ago thousands of animals were dying and there was NO WAY to notice it because the vets do not have a tracking method
(well they probably do if it is something like rabies, but thats it).
Besides when it comes to personal information (smoking, drinking, sex, traveling, etc...) human doctors aska lot more questions than a vet ever
