Over the years I have tweaked my way of practicing medicine a little.
TWO main themes have emerged.
1. There is no place for fear or anxiety.
Imagine those long medical lines in prisons or the military where patients are treated like cattle and shoved through en masse.
There is no need for that. That is why we invented the pet HEALTH SPA concept. Where pets are treated like royalty and pampered and spoiled whenever they come in. In fact after a few SPA visits, most pets come running out of the car with their tails wagging to face the next day at Safari Animal Clinic. They do not even have any idea that we have administered medication and performed several medical procedures and diagnostic tests while they were here. SHHH, don't tell them, we would rather they did not know!
2. Prevention saves lives
Every year or two, the president, many athletes and celebrities and some business executives check into the Mayo Clinic, The Cleveland Clinic or The Scripps Center for executive health for a few days to have Executive Level or Presidential level diagnostics and preventative procedures done. Do our pets not deserve the same? OK so maybe we wait on the CT scans and the MRI's till needed, but that is why we have become known for developing some cutting edge custom made preventative plans for our pets.
Over the years I have also developed a liking of a more natural and holistic preventative program with limited use of drugs, if possible.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, don't you agree?
