Yes, Artie has had a ton of ups and downs, over the past year.. quite frankly, he is a quandary to his Specialist at Angell Memorial Hospital. This Vet is one of the top ones in the country.. All the Vets at Angell Memorial go to him for advice.
Dr B is very down to earth, cost conscious, dedicated.
He is kind of 'winging' it with Artie.. and feels that I have a good amount of knowledge about the meds, and Artie. He trusts my judgement; however, Unless it is something physically medical that he can treat, it we are just going by our instinct, experiences, and Artie's Behavior..
You could kind of say that I am doing hospice care to Artie.. But he is pooping, eating, and had a ton of zoomies today..I brushed him, we played with a wand toy, and we played "Chase" for about 45 minutes.. then he was watching me as I did my morning stuff..
I have to give his secretary a daily update, because Artie can turn on a dime. The Secretary is awesome. I have really bonded with her. I think she wants the daily updates, more than Dr B.
Anytime, I go to Angell Memorial, and mention Dr B's name, everyone's eyes light up.
I mean it.. they are in awe of this guy.. He, his secretary and his Vet tech are kind of a team unto themselves, that is what I was told by a couple of people..
Dr B does not work everyday; but he calls in daily for updates on his patients.. and his secretary knows exactly how to reach him.. and he has an 'assistant' vet-- yes a Vet, not a student, who is familiar with all his patients; so he can cover for Dr B.
Human doctors are not even that dedicated..I feel blessed in finally finding an excellent Vet.
I swear, if it was not for Dr B, Artie would not have lived through this past year.
Anyway..I am hijacking this forum.. sorry..
