"...and when we caught up in the Super Sucky Vortex of Entitlement and we think that somehow we deserve these things, that we deserve all the stuff, all the fucking junk that we have been told over and over that we should have, when we get stuck in that vortex of really giving a fuck about the stupid shit, that is when we are most miserable."
It didn't happen when I turned 50, but sometime after I turned 51 I stopped caring so desperately about what people thought of me, and I have to say that it is really fucking awesome (yes, I will u...

I had been 'vet shopping' for about a year when a friend recommended Care Animal Clinic. Once I brought my dogs and cats there I never wanted to go anywhere else. The staff are amazing and take excellent care of pets, and their families. I've said goodbye to a beloved family dog there, and brought our rescue dog for his first appointment. My pets have had many different surgeries and treatments, and each and every time we were treated like family. Everyone I've encountered has been professional, competent and also kind, loving and compassionate. I can't imagine a better place to take my pets.
