I love pet blogging for a lot of reasons, including that it’s a great democratizer. I would never have felt comfortable asking my own vet to write about the benefits of pumpkin for dogs but when Dr. Laci Schaible commented on one of my blog posts, I checked out her VetLive site, discovered it was new and interesting — and immediately felt comfortable pumping her for information about pumpkins. She came through, in spades, as you can see here.
Dr. Schaible in turn asked me to write a guest post — fair is fair! — from the perspective of a veterinary client dealing with tough economic times. And so I did. It appears today on the VetLive site.
One thing: Those who read this blog will be aware that Frankie is not the dog pictured in the post. He occasionally gets picky about public appearances and refuses to pose. Consider the cute black dog you see there his shadow side, his doppleganger, his body double, a potential love interest… whatever your imagination desires.
