Note that there are medical and anatomical terms used in the text, to which I will refer you to either a medical dictionary or the Internet if necessary to understand . Dr. James Kennerly has been a vet for over thirty-seven years. He graduated from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. After graduation, he completed an internship at a centralized surgery and emergency hospital in Akron, Ohio. He was under the tutelage of nine experienced veterinarians, a board-certified ophthalmologist, a dermatologist, a radiologist, plus a host of support staff. He has practiced in San Diego County, California, for over thirty years. He is married to Janice, and they have a son, David- a daughter, Cara- a son-in-law, Brandon- and their first grandson, Langston. In the past, they have had a menagerie of animals such as horses, geese, dogs and cats, tortoises, and fish, plus his favorites, a cockatiel named Soni Ali Behr, who lived to be twenty-one, and Mr. Bo Jangles, a cat with a John Wayne swagger. For twenty five years I have tried to change the verbiage of the pet owners I met. They would say the vet, and I would say: you mean the veterinarian- They looked at me with a puzzled look, and then would either avoid the term, or continue to say: the vet. Over the years, I have come to realize that the vet is a term of endearment to the pet owner. Therefore you will find the veterinarian referred to in this book as the vet ninety nine percent of the time.
