To my dismay none of our clients were put off by the snow, depositing their various pets at the surgery door for routine operations and worse still, dental work.
As usual we have been supplied with a never ending stream of shortbread and chocolates to numb the pain.
I am on call the eve of my birthday and am praying no-one expects me to brave the non gritted UK roads and ice in the early hours of the start of my 34th year.
Sparing a thought for the vet on call on Christmas day and the poor nurses who will be working the Christmas shifts, spending it on the surgery premises rather than at home with their families. Let's hope there aren't too many Christmas pudding/chocolate intoxicated pets.
