My Doc And Me


As you can see in this picture, I recently paid a visit to my doctor, Michael Weisel, DVM. Since Parental Unit has known him for about 20 years, she gets to call him, "Dr Mike" (after Jane Seymour's character on that show, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman that Parental Unit just loved!). I'd been having some "stomach troubles" for over a month now, and Parental Unit had tried one thing after another. But Dr. Mike knew just how to handle it - first he gave me a thorough check up, and finding nothing out of the ordinary ( like a ball in my stomach), put me on a 10 day course of antibiotics/tummy soothers called Metronidazole.  And ya know, I started feeling better right away. And I can tell Parental Unit has started to relax a little bit because she's noticed that the stuff comin' out of me looks a lot better, which has eased her worries.

So now that I'm feeling better, let me tell you a little bit about Dr. Mike and his small clinic-he's a one-man show! He graduated from The Ohio State University Vet School way back in the dark ages (oops, I mean in 1980) and immediately set up this clinic just east of the campus. He realized that this area was underserved for vet services - the residents were mostly students and low income folks who needed good medical attention for their furry companions.

Wait... Parental Unit is insisting that I tell you this quick story: she was in his clinic a few years ago with her late dog, Carson, and Dr. Mike and all of his helpers were in the back tending to an emergency. She was the only one up front, and this guy and his dog walk in, hand her a one dollar bill, and ask her to give it to Dr. Mike-it turns out that he was paying off his bill for his beloved pooch's emergency surgery, one dollar at a time...thanks to my kind Doc.

Wow, that is a great vet! And Metronidazole is your best friend when you need it, no? :)

Bocci said...

Yes! I think you can call those white pills a "friend", but my Parental Unit just discovered that I ate the yummy pill pocket today and left the pill in my bowl - she was not happy...

Your buddy,
Bocci
