Gratitude Project 2015 - Technology and our pets

Welcome to the Gratitude Project 2015

I am grateful for the money spent by the Pharmaceutical Companies into Research and Development into new drugs and therapies for the diseases that ail us and our pets.

Whilst many write and imply that the pharmaceutical companies are all moustache twirling evil men or women inflicting toxic drugs on the general community, the truth of the matter is far less exotic.
RIP Teddy

We should be grateful that we live in a time where we have vaccines which can prevent fatal diseases (in us and our pets), that we have antibiotics to treat severe infections, and anti-viral medications also.

We should be grateful to those scientists who work hard to find cures for cancers, or to create new drugs that are able to kill fleas and ticks.

(It is thanks to those who have done the research, that our Teddy was able to  live an extra 18 months after his diagnosis of Lymphoma.  )

I am Dr Liz, the mad vet from Bellambi.

We are here to help all of our special animals.
