    S's EP called it PDSA which is the Peoples Dispensary for Sick Animals :shock:
  • Ooops!
    Good to know that the 'professionals' are totally clued up on what they are talking about.
    Gives me so much confidence.....(not)

  • Know what really annoys me though?
    THAT look and grin that you get from some (and I can't say who) 'professionals' that is a 'laugh at' not a 'laugh with' kinda look.
    They are generally the ones who then have to refer to their notes to remind themselves of the name of the condition we are talking about.....I KNOW they are busy people but it doesn't make me feel full of confidence.... :x
