Who am I? Some of you may know me, but for those who don't , let's take a walk through my closet. The best introduction I know is my T-shirt collection.
I'm a Dog Mom
who knows she isn't perfect.
I'm an OSU football fan.
I'm a birder
who loves sparrows
and the New River Birding Festival.
I'm a member of the Ohio Ornithological Society.
And, I am a small animal veterinarian.
My blog will mostly be about dogs, cats, and birds (domestic dogs and cats, wild birds) and the part of Ohio where I live, but will likely veer off in other directions as the mood strikes me. I welcome your comments and feedback, as long as we all obey the rules.
The rules for my blog are simple:
Rule #1: Be nice. Respect other people, play nicely with the other children, treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. However you choose to say it, just think before you type. Remember, in this virtual world of mine, no one can see your face or read your body language, so innocent comments can be misconstrued easily.
Rule #2: (an extension of Rule #1) This is not a debate board. While differing ideas are welcomed and will be respected, this is not the place to argue about hunting, declawing cats, owning exotic pets or banning dog breeds. I have my opinions, you have yours, and I don't care to fight about them here. Insulting comments or flame wars will not be tolerated.
Rule #3: I hope to talk a lot about pet care and veterinary medicine, and I will be happy to answer general questions. (Keep it to mammals, please. I don't do feathers or scales.) I cannot and will not make a diagnosis, recommend treatments, or give specific medical advice. Don't ask me. If you do, the answer will be "See your vet" or "Call your vet" or "Seek emergency attention." (Be nice to your pets, too.)
'Nuff said about the rules. Welcome to KatDoc's World. Next post, I plan to introduce you to some of the pets with whom I share my life.
