Nothing can take their place – no layman or lawmaker – no clinic or council.
For those who can, with gentle hands and soothing words calm the fears of a stricken animal, has a gift reserved for few.
Those who can diagnose the sickness of a creature that cannot speak – one that cannot by neither sign nor gesture give any indication of the seat of fatal illness – is endowed with knowledge, sympathy, and understanding far beyond that reached by ordinary people.
Those who can, with the aid of medical science, brighten the eyes, stay the fever, energize the pulse, build resistance against diseases in an animal, has reached the goal only a favored few attain.
And what are their rewards? The knowledge that they have lived a life of true usefulness in helping creatures that cannot help themselves"
I will be forever grateful to the vets and vet students who saved my horse's life, who never told me "But it's just a horse," but worked endless stressful hours to keep him alive instead.
I can't wait to do the same!
