She took the words right out of my mouth! "I always feel it’s an honor to be invited into people’s homes. It’s really a privilege. The pet really never knows anything is happening. I come into their home. I bring treats and I spend some time in there and they get this little sedative and they fall asleep at home with their people."

Cats and dogs are living longer these days. And more old pets is giving rise to more options for pet owners looking for pet hospice and end-of-life care.

Get cozy and learn more about the zoledronate infusions we have been using to help control pain in our patients with bone cancer in today's blog post! For the right dog, they are so easy and can give them a full month of comfort. We've gotten really good reviews from the 5 families in the area that have tried them so far! http://ow.ly/JE2mf

I know we don't treat horses, but this is very interesting for #autism research! http://ow.ly/JEO3y
Clues to autism are explored by UC Davis equine veterinarians working with human medicine doctors after finding a treatment for neonatal foal disorder in newborn horses.

A good reality check for those who think veterinarians are raking in it! http://ow.ly/I6tSM
It's been entirely too long since I've posted, and for that I apologize. I've been terribly busy responding to nastygrams depositing my checks from Big Pet Food sneering at plebians going to a continuing education conference this past week, and what a week it was.
