This blog is based on the memories of Dr. D. E. Larsen. These are mostly about his experiences in veterinary medicine, working with both patients and clients. A few memories of Army stories might creep into the blog. Childhood memories that played a role in the making of a veterinarian also are included once in awhile. I have added a few Guest Authors, friends and clients who have meaningful insight to add. We love what we do, and we do it with passion. We hope you enjoy the stories.
