Dr. Kris Nelson is a committed advocate for animals... In our conversations she made it clear that the care of animals comes first. Join us as she shares with us stories from the clinic, about having a "cat scan" at home, and a cat who was born without eyes changed peoples lives just about every day. Who is Kris? Like I said a committed and caring person dedicated to our animal friends... from her website:

"At age four, Kris Nelson decided to be a veterinarian. A year later her father took her hunting. Once she realized what was happening, Kris made noise to warn the ducks. She established a hospital in the bow of the boat with blankets, food and water. When a duck was brought in, she dressed its wounds before wrapping a towel around the bird. Kris wanted to save them all. . . she still does. "

Funny how themes keep showing up. But first, we have a story of how an animal control officer rescued a not so happy Great Dane and what it takes to make a difference: Discovering the Great in a Forlorn Dane. Now on to our theme of the week, since we are running our interview with Dr. Kris Nelson, funny how medical themed articles showed up this week. Does your dog or cat show concern when you are not well? Check out: Clara Barkton: Nurse Dogs and see if you have a nurse in your family. Does your family have a history of heart problems? Well listen up: Why a Cat's Purr Can Lower Heart Attack Risk. Something to add to that daily dose of aspirin. And lastly, if you have a medical marijuana prescription (and if you live in a State that allows it), then we have good news for your dogs that may need a little help with their pain: “Pot Patch” for Pups. To be available later this year!
