Are vets allowed?

This was recently rejected (see email screen shot). The reasons don't apply to this nomination.

Are vets able to be pokestops or are they in the same categories as schools?

It is the only vet in Reservoir and it is well known to the local dog owners. It is located on a main road with lots of passers by.

    I have never thought about this until now, but I would not das that it is eligeble since normal doctors are also ineligeble. Maybe a sculpture or any kind of artwork can be eligeble, but overall, I am more on ineligeble. It doesnt meet any kind of criteria (exploration, local hotspot, exercise etc.) expect "meet people", but this is not the reason you would visit a vet.

    For me 1* -> doesnt meet criteria.

    This has been coming up several times lately. Hope does a vet clinic even come anywhere close to meeting critiera? And I'm not referring to art that may be located at a clinic, but the clinic itself. Are people that desperate for a Wayspot that they ignore the criteria completely?

    A vet clinic doesn’t promote socializing, exercise or exploration. To add to that some vet clinics are there for emergency purposes. Like if someone dog needs emergency surgery they go to some specific vet clinics.

    It's just another "business" - nobody says "Hey, lets go hang out at the Vets".

    Does not meet eligibility criteria

    Does not seem to be a great place of exploration, place for exercise, or place to be social.
