At a recent meeting with the powers-that-be at Dogster and Catster it was suggested that I join Twitter. I had heard of the site, but I didn’t really know what it was all about.

Veterinarians generally reject new developments and trends. This can have disastrous consequences for the practice of medicine: it is the cause of the “if rubbing turpentine on a dog’s scrotum to cure a cough was good enough in 1947, it’s good enough today” mentality that is disturbingly prevalent among older veterinary practitioners.

I therefore try to fight the change-averse veterinary frame of mind. And, in that vein, I set up a Twitter account. You can find it at:

I often come across links and stories that are interesting but not truly bloggable. I’ll use the Twitter account to share those links as well keep followers up-to-date on happenings here at the Vet Blog.

And you never know. If you follow me, I might follow you back.
