Hello, my human friends. I hope you are having a good day. A while ago, I told you about the first veterinarian who took care of this diabetic cat back when we lived in Maryland. That was when my human was first worried that I was a diabetic cat. But that turned out to be a false alarm, and when I moved to San Diego with my human in late 2010, everything was fine.
Things didn’t stay that way, though. I went for my first check with the veterinarian here in San Diego in the summer of 2012. My human took me to Market Street Vet Clinic, where they had taken a look at my furiend who crossed the rainbow bridge, Pepe. They helped Pepe make it over when it was time, and they were very nice and kind to my human. So when it came time for me to get checked, he was very happy to take me to them.
That is where I met Dr. Raffy Dorian, who is the veterinarian who had to break the news to my human that I am a diabetic cat. Dr. Dorian studied animal science at California Polytechnic San Luis Obispo before getting his doctorate in veterinary medicine at the University of California Davis. After earning this degree, he went on to earn another one in preventative veterinary medicine.
And Dr. Dorian has a great manner with us felines. I do not like going to the veterinarian. I don’t like the offices, and I let all the humans know this is the case.
When I went to see Dr. Dorian, I didn’t struggle or fight much — well, for me. I let him check my heart rate and look at a lot of things before I finally said I had enough and took a swat at him. For me, that’s good.
My human and I like the humans who work at Market Street Vet Clinic. My human even has one of the vet techs come over to give me my insulin shots when he travels.
If you live in San Diego or within driving distance and you are looking for a veterinarian, my human highly recommends this place. I of course do not recommend any veterinarian because I don’t like going there. But this diabetic cat can tolerate them and that’s as good of an endorsement as I will give any veterinarian.
