Bringing home a patient…

We visited my niece last weekend. My girls are jealous.

Their cousin, L, got a pony for Xmas! A little girl’s dream and the whining started.

Can we have a pony?

Can we have a pet, etc, etc,

I tried to explain that L lives on a property with space. Even more importantly, her father is a horse vet, and he very likely had this pony or this pony’s relative as a patient, so it was easy for him to bring the patient home.

I then offered to bring home a patient with arthritis for them to meet and talk to.

The girls were not enthused.
