The yes and no thing is a really good idea. We had a dog come into our clinic who had gone to the vet who runs a mobile vaccine clinic but also offers low cost major surgeries that are usually referred out to the specialists for some sort of leg surgery. I think it was for his loose kneecaps. One leg was far worse than the other so it was decided to do that one first or else the bad leg wouldn't be able to support the dog. She asked to double check that it was the left leg being done that day and without even putting her on hold the girl yells out "hey, you guys are doing the wrong leg!" So they stopped, closed up and did the other leg. He came into our clinic because of complications with one of the surgical sites and there wasn't a SINGLE WORD about what they had done to the other leg on the record. How scary is that??
