A sled dog veterinarian explains what cold-weather breeds need to thrive in extreme conditions.
Category: Behind the Scenes
In my entire career as a vet, I’ve only been suckered into adopting two pets. The first was Meggie, a Scottie puppy with a neuromuscular disorder called Scottie cramps. The disorder caused her to randomly walk like a broken down robot. She was probably the easiest pet I’ve trained due to her general good nature and the fact that I got her when she was pretty young. The second was Jonesy, the Jack Russell Terrier, my current dog.
