So Much Going On Update on Thankful Thursday.

If you’ve been with us for a while, you might remember that we had been without a local vet for several weeks. I wrote about it in our last post, here. I’ve allowed the sadness to ebb and flow and moved on.

Before all the sad stuff hit home, I had wanted to have Dr. Simpson set up a stem cell infusion for Ducky (like we had done for Shadow 3-1/2 years ago) to help with the pain from her arthritis/hip dysplasia, but COVID made that impossible. So, I started thinking about other options, particularly veterinary acupuncture.

Dr. Simpson came to the rescue again with the name of a vet nearby who practices TCVM (traditional Chinese veterinary medicine). One of the techs at the animal hospital where he now works had worked with the TCVM vet previously and recommended Dr. Barr highly. So, I made an appointment with her; and Dr. Simpson filled in as our regular vet until I could establish a relationship with a new local vet. I am so glad I did! Dr. Barr is wonderful with Ducky!

After learning that my first choice for a new regular vet would not be willing to work with an “alternative medicine” vet, I had to find someone who would work with her. I knew from Dr. Simpson of an excellent vet not too far from home so I called them with my fingers crossed.

I lucked out! Not only are they willing to do so, but one of the vets there – now our new vet – is friends with Dr. Barr since having worked with her elsewhere a few years ago. Dr. Moskowitz is wonderful, too! And two of the techs there used to work with Dr. Simpson at our former vet hospital so they both knew Ducky (and one even knew Bogie).

So, we now have two wonderful local veterinarians as well as our beloved friend, Dr. Simpson….

So, on Thankful Thursday we have a great deal to be thankful for. We have two new vets who are working together and with us to help Ducky feel better and keep Bogie healthy as well.

    Though we didn’t know Bogie, we are so sorry to hear about his passing. Some people are cruel and thoughtless, and we hope they get what is coming to them. We share in your grief and send purrs and prayers for your healing as you remember your special Bogie.

    Excellent on securing the services of not one but two vets. I have been with my current vet like forever, and he has been really good. When Benji was attacked at Easter during the holidays, I called him and he opened up the clinic to treat Benji.. He has been here for a long time, although we have two other vets in town, one I am not keen on (been there- done that) and the other I do not know too well but I hear she is very good. Not sure what I would do if Dr. Mustafa ( it’s Turkish) left but I would probably try to see the lady vet. Anyway, so very glad you are settled and I do hope the dogs will be too. Sorry, I have missed quite a few posts recently..

      Not a problem…you’ve had a great many things on your “plate” too. I hope Annabell is feeling better. I’ve left a comment on a couple of your posts that were “blown away” when I hit enter. Don’t know why – other people’s comments worked fine – maybe WP is just weird. πŸ™„

    that is so great…and we wish you all the luck and super good results… it is not common that regular vets work together with alternative docs, our vet clinic would give me only “the” look… merry christmas to you…

      It’s amazing, isn’t it, how many regular vets are so close-minded when it comes to alternative medicine? You would think that they would welcome the opportunity to help their patients in any way they can. After all, their version of the Hippocratic oath practically demands it. πŸ™„

    WOW, that worked out wonderfully and it’s amazing how it all came together. That’s a wonderful thankful indeed! I may want to get the TCVM Dr. Barr info from you, I didn’t know we had any in the area. Merry Christmas from all of us.

    Somehow I missed your November posts about changes at the vet office, but I’m glad you have new vets who are working well for you. A vet you trust is absolutely essential for us pet parents!
