NB: For twenty five years I took emergency calls every day, night and weekend, including all the holidays. I can no longer function during my normal work days when I have been in the clinic from 2 to 5 AM with an emergency. Nowadays my young vets are fortunate to have emergency clinics. I'm sure they will miss all those night and weekend calls. (When I was young I also had to walk 5 miles through the swamp with sawgrass and gators to get to school), We are certainly fortunate in the metropolitan areas of the US now to have full-time emergency clinics. We still stay on call for all medical and surgical cases with which we are currently involved. Those of you in this category were told in the clinic how to reach us.
