Did the name of our new blog catch your interest? Anyone who has ever loved a pet has had to deal with a variety of shades of the fluffy stuff that come with most dog and cat breeds. A joke we like to tell is that we have the perfect dog – if only he could vacuum! Every profession has its stories, and veterinary medicine is certainly rich with tails tales that will amuse, warm your heart, make you LOL, bring a tear, affirm your faith in humanity, and make you realize that an animal doctor embodies the words of Will Rogers: The best doctor in the world is the veterinarian. He can’t ask his patients what is the matter – he’s got to just know. We will be recalling 40 years of stories for our 50 Shades blog. We hope you enjoy these brief glimpses into the goings on at Tallmadge Animal Hospital.
