It sure has been a very hectic week and I am so glad I have a day off tomorrow. While I would just like to chill out and do absolutely nothing, I have a few lingering work issues that I need to tidy up before I can fully RELAX.
I have so many amazing stories to share with you all but I am running on very little fuel.
I am sleep deprived and was giggling like a 5-year-old for most of the afternoon today.
Tomorrow the aim is to clear my mind and maybe even meditate.
I just would like to share one thing with you first. Vets often get gifts for putting animals down. Pet owners appreciate the kindness and support given to them and their late pets in those last moments. While I appreciate getting a thank you card or chocolates for my compassion, I just don’t feel so much joy from such gifts. They usually make me sad and transport me back to that last moment where they lost their very beloved animal.
The best thing a client can do for me is to give me a gift for curing or treating their pet. It just makes my hard work feel recognised and I feel victorious and so happy to have saved or treated my patient successfully.
Today I received a wonderful gift for all my efforts in managing Katie’s(a dog) medical condition.
It is full of kitty cat pictures with very funny captions. These are the type of clients I really treasure.
Thank you to all our lovely clients that thank us for all our hard work even if we could not save their much-loved pet. It really makes us feel so supported and invigorates us to work passionately to save as much patients as possible…
