I don't know about the rest of you, but I actually pause when someone asks me about my profession. Each and every time I'll wage a cerebral war with myself on the pros/cons of telling this complete stranger about what I do, because 75% of the time the next words will be, "So I have this dog...".

another FYI

Dear pet owners, most veterinarians generally frown on using Ajax to clean your dog's ears. Yes, I agree that it does get the ear wax out quite nicely, just as it cleans the top of my stove quite nicely. But as a general rule of thumb, if a product is generally considered a great household cleanser and the label recommends wearing gloves while cleaning with it, then don't put it on your pet's skin. Better yet, if you won't put it in your ears, don't put it in your dog's ears. Thank you.


  1. This blog cracks me up! Thank you so much for sharing! I recently left the veterinary field and your blog makes me both miss it and be grateful for it - the perfect balance.

  2. That's a new one. People use the wierdest stuff to clean the ears. Or put on the skin. People just do wierd stuff.
