It's been almost a year since I've seen Lemmy. This is a good thing.
Lemmy's last regularly scheduled check-in with me is Saturday morning.
Lemmy arrives early in the morning, just after the office has opened.
In two days, Lemmy will return to my office for his appointment to be neutered.
For his third and final puppy visit, Lemmy arrives walking on his leash like a gentleman. His tendency to pull the leash when excited has been curbed with gentle reinforcement and a treat-reward system.
In our practice, we typically call the owner two days after an appointment to check up on the patient.
Lemmy bounds into the waiting room, his owners trailing behind a taut leash. That's not the worst habit a puppy can have, but it is something to work on going forward.
This is the fictionalized story of Lemmy.
So you've made it through most of the holiday season (hopefully) unscathed.
I am a scientist, and this sometimes interferes in my personal life.
Recently, I received an email with some questions about a specific disease and the vaccines intended to prevent the malady. Hopefully, all of you will get something out of the answers.
The language of the universe is written in numbers.
If you're like me, you decorate for the holidays.
Veterinary medicine is full of gallows humor. If you cannot use self-deprecation and sarcasm to deal with some situations, the job can kill your inner joy.
Last week, I discussed mammary cancer in pets, and the extremely easy way (early spaying) to avoid it.

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.
