Many Lemons Make Lemonade

May 28, 2012

I’ve been lucky to share my home with many cats and dogs over the past years (and lucky to have a husband who helps manage the zoo!). Like many of my clients, I’ve been unlucky to have pets with unusual, chronic and sometimes expensive diseases and conditions. I’ve learned an incredible amount from my pets, and their health quirks. This has made me an inadvertent expert on topics such as renal failure and heart disease in cats, and congenital orthopedic disease in dogs.

By sharing the stories of my “Lovable Lemons”, I hope others can learn from my personal experiences with diseases as common as food allergies and as rare as acanthomatous ameloblastomas (say that three times fast!)
