This is me

I’m a veterinarian. That was where this page started. I want everyone’s pet to live a long and happy life. Anything I can do to help in this regard is time well spent and sharing knowledge empowers pet owners.

I’m also a father, a husband and an adult child. This lends itself to some pretty interesting material. Here you’ll get stories from just about anywhere in my life as well as some of my thoughts. Recently, I have started working on daily meditations and look forward to sharing them with you as well.

My wife and I met while we were both in veterinary school at St. George’s University in Grenada West Indies. We’ve had an adventure of a life thus far and adding three daughters to it has only made it more fun.

I hope you enjoy what you find here. Let me know what you think.

All of my posts are open source. If you see anything on here you like or think would work for your website or publication please feel free to use it. All I ask is that you give me credit as the author and list the website’s url:

  2. I went to, what you, described as a, Shot Vet! If people thought about the potential cost, when adopting a animal, few would be adopted. I had 4-5 dogs at one time. I would described my dogs ailment to my Shot Vet, sometime he would give me meds without the dog being present, for the cost of the meds, or suggest an over the counter remedy. My Shot vet, could look an my dog and know by just looking at the dog and know what was wrong with it, based on the symptoms. He had many followers and I doubt her was hurting for money. He knew if he couldn’t help just a little bit, that animal would land up in the pound and dead!


    • Thank you for your comment and feedback. I think you might have inferred some meaning in my post about finances that was unintended on my part. This comment was posted under my introduction but I think you are referring to this article: I am not disparaging a type of veterinarian.
      Shotvet is not my definition of a type of veterinarian, it is an actual company with a specific practice model.
      While I agree that practice model is necessary and provides an important service, it’s not how I want to practice medicine. I prefer to build relationships, become part of the community I practice in and recommend the best medicine I know how to practice while at the same time being practical and keeping the relationship I have built intact by listening to and working with my clients.

  3. Hi Heath..

    My mom loves you. I don’t live in your area but expect I would as well. I take my girls to a clinic for rabies shots. I do my own distemper etc. all shots for the first year or two are done at my vet.

    I L
    OVE my vet. I have two. My dog vet and my avian vet. I will take my girlls to see the avian vet but not vice versa. Unfortunately, getting the specialty of being a certified avian vet must be tough. Or I guess really fortunately. I would not want someone who is not vested in taking care of parrots treating my 3 thousand dollar macaw. Not putting a price on anything, except my cell phone that again I can not find…I went to bed with it plus two IPads, plus three dogs…..


  4. Heath, you have the honour of being the very first vet to follow my blog. Welcome! And thank you 🙂 Any one who loves and cares for animals is my kind of people 🙂
