The best way I know to make connections with strangers is to tell them I'm a veterinarian. I get "ohs" and "ahs" and stories about pets - present and past. It makes me feel special.
But I know that in veterinary medicine the hidden angels are our staff members - especially the veterinary technicians - that work in every veterinary clinic largely behind the scenes. And this week is their week - Oct 14th to the 20th.
