Lemmy returns for his recheck following a bout with Leptospirosis.
Lemmy has been hospitalized for two days when I learn the reason for his illness. I had suspected, but with confirmatory blood work, I now know.
Seventeen is old for most dogs. And although Lemmy is not like most dogs, 17 is old for him, too.
Three weeks after Lemmy was examined and diagnosed with a nasty urinary tract infection, he returns for a recheck. This is intended to confirm the infection has been eliminated.
I once had a nightmare where a lump under a welcome mat was lurching toward me as I hid under the covers. It sounds weird now, but at the time, I was inconsolable.
Lemmy's owners call me just before noon. They relay a story that's unlikely at best, but the take-home message is Lemmy's depressive symptoms are gone, and the household is full of life.
About two months ago, Lemmy's family suffered the loss of their home to a fire. No one was injured, and Lemmy has remained in good health.
I want to repay my student loans. Therefore, I charge people for my veterinarian services.
Lemmy is coming in today.

It happens. Despite millions of dollars in research, and detailed testing beforehand, sometimes it happens. Sometimes a side effect occurs when we use a drug in a patient.

Leia's visit today is her last neonatal visit.
Leia returns for her four-week check-in while I'm away on vacation.
It's an odd position to be in, wanting to see a patient, yet wanting the patient to stay away from the hospital.
