I owe a gigantic thank you to the veterinarian who will be performing my adopted dog’s spay surgery tomorrow; Thank you for being able to move her surgery up two days (we are SO excited to bring her home early!!!), and thank you in advance for keeping her safe during her surgery...I know that she is in good, loving, caring hands. Thank you for all the years you spent in veterinary school and residency, the massive student loans you incurred in the process, all the hard work you put in to get yourself through it all, and then the decision you made to work in shelter medicine. The work you do is truly amazing and my life has been forever changed for the better because of people like you. I won’t get the chance to meet you and thank you in person, but you deserve a very, very big and heartfelt thank you from every person who walks through the doors of your facility, so here is mine. I hope our dog gives you a big kiss right before she gets taken back for surgery!
