It’s been the quietest month of what until now has been a busy year. I suppose Christmas is a factor in that, although I’ve noticed that it seems to come round about this time every year! I think that this year people are really having to watch the pennies.
However the recession hasn’t prevented our generous customers giving us the usual collection of delicious chocolates and biscuits. So, if we are standing around with not enough to do at least we can usefully expand our waistlines!
We’ve still had some interesting cases to deal with: the dog who arrived convulsing, the result, we think, of raiding a bin containing mouldy food; the dog with alarming bruising due to blood clotting problems likely to have been caused by a tick borne parasite picked up in France; the little puppy whose broken tibia needed a metal pin.
We wait to see what the new year will bring. Let us hope it’s a good one!
