Ticks are very common here on the North Shore of Boston. They are found in every city and town here in Massachusetts and continue to become more common in New Hampshire and Maine. There are sometimes hundreds of ticks just waiting in the brush and grasses to join us. Being pet owners is a plus as having the awareness and knowledge of ticks and the disease that they can transmit is helpful for our safety.

Summer Newsletter Happy Summer!! Hot, full of activities; going by so fast. That’s both at the the office and at home where I am spending time with my family as often as I can. I hope that our clients are taking cues from our pets to play outside, bask in the warm sun, watch the sunsets and go for a swim! Time is so precious and my animals remind me to live every day to it’s fullest.
Over the summer, I read “Being Mortal” by Atul Gawande. I have thought about the book almost every day either in my own reflections of life or talking to a client about it. I did write my thoughts as a veterinarian on the book, with pen and paper, back in September when my computer crashed. Being a big recycler, it appears that I recycled the four pages that I wrote one night before turning in. So much for my career as an author!
Happy happy spring! Nothing like living in New England with the seasons. It’s so refreshing to me to see all the blooms happening on a daily basis. It does mean the return of many of our parasites but that comes with lots of play time outside which I love!
Happy Winter folks! Pups are getting some play time in the snow and I am recharging every weekend playing in the snow as well. I am a New Englander that loves winter. Things are bustling here at the clinic with our continued drive and vision to make our patient care the best for all our patients. My goal is to enhance pets and peoples lives through daily actions that improve quality of life.
Greetings to all our clients as we come to another holiday season and the end of the year. I can’t imagine how fast things would seem if I were a dog or cat! They say one year to a human is equivalent to seven years for a pet. Time flies by fast enough for me. No wonder they make the most of every day being incredible companions for us. And they are pretty good at taking naps too!
