I just wanted to say, thank you so much for everything that you do. I feel like people in crucial jobs like yours don't get nearly enough gratitude for what must be a highly stressful occupation (and from what I have read here, it is,) and my cat Casper's life was saved by a veterinarian just like you. Three years later he's a happy, purry little dude, all because of a vet. So thank you for being a champion for animals and somehow running this amazing blog too. You're fantastic!
It’s great to hear about happy not-quite-endings. Your vet and their team is fantastic too! (They did the work!)
