I have always brought my pets to the vet for their care.  Recently, I found myself with a dilemma.  My fifteen year old cat, who is in failing health and quite frail, needed a refill on his medication and in order to get that refill he needed to undergo an exam.  Given his current state of health I felt that a road trip may do more harm to him than good so I decided to have a mobile veterinarian come to my home.

If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time you may (or may not) have noticed a bit of radio silence recently.  I had the pleasure of going on vacation and spending a week in Daytona Beach in February (photo is sunrise from our balcony).  Of course the week while I was away we had several last minute client requests.  Thankfully my team stepped up to the plate and serviced every single one of the requests; about twenty extra visits in total.
