Update – Coated With Fur: A Vet’s Life

Many people have been kind enough to ask how the book is going so here is a quick update.  The process has been most gratifying.  To hear the joy the book is bringing to animal lovers is both a thrill and a relief! 

  • The first request by a reviewer came from New Zealand
  • Changing Hands Bookstore in Arizona named it a “Staff Pick”
  • My first evening with a book club was wonderfully fun and they asked great questions
  • An excellent blog on Minnesota Authors highlighted the book – check out www.readingminnesota.blogspot.com

Every reader I’ve heard from has been so kind and gracious.  Thank you!

Just a quick reminder about bee stings.  Tonight right before the doors closed at 6:00pm, a five month old puppy was raced into the clinic in the arms of a terribly concerned owner.  The puppy suffered an allergic reaction to a bee sting.  Please talk to your veterinarian before a crisis develops to determine the appropriate amount of diphenhydramine (Benadryl) for your dog.  Bee stings can be deadly.  This puppy came close to dying but I am delighted to say, made a full recovery through the joint blessings of a great team of veterinary technicians and effective pharmaceuticals.
