First Thank You!
Related to the previous post on parvo virus, I have received my first official "thank you" as a veterinarian! The owners of one of the puppies I treated for parvo my first week out in practice sent me a surprise gift and card last week, thanking me for saving their dog. I was both shocked and humbled to receive such a gift." While it is certainly nice to get such a nice bouquet, the old "I'm just doing my job" line comes into my head. Yes, it may sound a bit silly, but it is true! I'm pretty certain I didn't do much more or less than any other vet would do. Still, the flowers are beautiful and the card sits within easy reach on my desk so that I can see it and realize that every time I look at it, it gives me a nice "warm fuzzy feeling" that only the grateful thanks of a client can give. What a great profession!
