Pet owners across the country are finding it difficult to get emergency care for their animals.
Sunday on Full Measure, I'll dig into the national crisis in veterinary care.

We’ll also have some valuable advice on how to avoid getting stuck in a dangerous emergency situation.

And I'm back in San Francisco a year after we saw the twisted crisis of open air drug markets allowed to operate in the infamous Tenderloin District. Wait until you see what we found this time!
See you Sunday!

Regarding vets, it’s not just emergency care. I’ve been going to the same place for 35 years. There were four vets for many years, then during covid there were two retirements. At the same time, there was a substantial increase in the numbers of pets because so many people adopted during covid. When I called for my cat’s yearly checkup, last November, I had to wait two months for an appointment.
