A Week in the Life of a New York City Cat Veterinarian in the Trenches
A new year has begun, and along with the new year comes the resolutions. I try to be realistic with mine, and make them not too unreasonable to achieve. This year, the list was pretty realistic: spend more time with my sister; read at least one book a month; stay below 170 lbs; and write more blog posts.
Finding the topics to blog about isn’t that difficult when you work in a New York City cat practice. Every day, I encounter interesting people, notable cats, and intriguing medical conditions, all of which provide excellent blog fodder. Turning them into blog posts, however… that’s the challenge. So I’ve decided to start a new weekly feature on the blog where I discuss actual cases that come in the door, to give a realistic view of the kind of things I encounter in a busy Manhattan cat practice.
The cat names are real.
The client names have been changed.
