In mid-December 2023, my mom awoke to a stench emanating from my mouth.
Megan Duffy, who is probably the most popular and in demand general practice veterinarian in the NYC tri-state, squeezed us in for an appointment and diagnosed me with a secondary infection in my mouth.
By the grace of God, my mom had already scheduled me for what was supposed to be a regular dental cleaning at Animal Medical Center with Dr. Martel that following Monday. So much for a routine dental.
To make a long story short, I spent Christmas cone-headed with a few dozen sutures in my mouth.
Are these not the most gorgeous sutures in the history of veterinary medicine?
I am doing great and want to thank the vetmed universe.
We need more people to pursue careers in veterinary medicine so more dogs and owners can have the kind of care I have been fortunate to access so many, many, many, many…. times.
