This week: Strays

After years of living in Happy Valley and heavy suburbia, I decided last year to move to a more rural lifestyle in Sai Kung with my whole family of pets. The air was fresher and it was infinitely quieter, and I certainly don't miss the noise of rattling trams in Happy Valley.

This week: Vexing problems

I have spent a considerable amount of my life studying to be a vet and then upgrading my knowledge with further education. Now that I have been a vet for 10 years, you would think that I can solve any pet problem presented to me. That is true for the most part, but there are cases that stump me totally and it can happen quite often.

In the news recently, an 11-year-old golden retriever attacked its 60-year-old owner and her arm was severely wounded by the bite. The owners decided to send the dog away to be put to sleep.

This week: the perils of unpredictable clients

Don't undress for the vet! Being a veterinarian is not all work and no play - and there are certainly lots of hilarious things that happen behind the scenes. Animals and their owners can be very silly, and at the very least, very unpredictable.
