Is this turning into your little BLOG. I don't apologize that much when I upset my wife.
I have been to a 3rd world country and there are very few Vets. Most countries find that spending good money on a Vets to fix fluffy means we have too much wealth. The only care is limited to farm animals. Anything smaller than a cow that can no longer pull its weight is fixed with carrots, a couple onions, salt and pepper. Last time I sent $400 was to pay for a young girls arm to be set and have a young mans abscessed tooth removed before it killed him.
Did you even smile when you saw this strip? It is funny, twitching eyes and "smell a squirrel" is exactly what my lab does. Get a room you two.
I've read through my comment and yours several times, and I still don't see the problem. I agree that I could have worded the first line you quoted a little bit better, but I don't see what you're talking about. Would you please tell me exactly what I was implying that insulted the profession? Perhaps that will clear this up.
Anyway, if this is going to go on much longer, I say we take this elsewhere, because this is very off-topic, and I probably shouldn't have even posted the first comment on this site.
Thanks for the apology, but please re-read your initial post-you might not have said those things verbatim, but you surely implied them and your statement was very insulting to the veterinary profession. Your recent statement is much appreciated.
I never said that vets were unqualified, that they don't work as hard as MDs, or that vet school isn't every bit as hard med school. I apologize if my word choice or my tone implied any differently. If you want to know, I think vets are highly capable professionals who have had to put a lot of work into getting where they are. I couldn't really say I have a right to say that Med school is any harder than Vet school, either, since I haven't gone to both.
It appears that you feel very strongly about this, but please leave the aggression out. It really isn't necessary. I apologize if my comment insulted you, but I meant no slight against the profession.
