Christmas Message


The Alternative Vet and Christopher D wish all visitors to and readers of this site a very enjoyable Christmastime and a fulfilling, healthy and happy New Year.

As the days begin to lengthen, new hope is born.

For existing clients, the fax machine will be running 24 hours per day and will be checked twice daily over the holiday period.

A Poem:

Count your garden by the flowers,

Never by the leaves that fall.

Count your joys by golden hours,

Never when life’s worries call.

Count your nights by stars not shadows,

Count your days by smiles not tears,

And on every Christmas morning,

Count your age by friends not years.

N.B.: Christmas and the holiday period can be a time of risk for our animal companions (see Article: ‘Christmas Caution' WS038-07)
