About Vet's View

  • Born the oldest of five boys, I spent the majority of my time as a boy playing in the woods of Maine. It was during this time that I fell in love with nature, science and most of all animals. All through grade school I was determined to be a scientist but fell in love with medicine as soon as I started college at the University of Maine in Orono. I graduated from UMO with a B.S. in Biology in May of 2005 and by August I was living in the Eastern Caribbean nation of Grenada, where I attended St. George's University School of Veterinary Medicine, and met the love my life. After three years of classroom training and island living I left Grenada and moved to Knoxville, Tennessee to complete the clinical portion of my veterinary schooling. After a year of intense clinical work I moved to East Dorset, Vermont and began working at Riverside Veterinary Care on River Street in Rutland. In March, 2010 I married the love of my life, who is also a veterinarian at Green Mountain Veterinary Hospital in Manchester. We are still in East Dorset with our two cats and three dogs.

Fantastic post. I couldn't agree more. I've travelled in countries where children die for lack of, for example, a typhoid fever vaccine. And treatment is unaffordable if the child is affected. And as you know, that's just one of many illnesses that can be prevented by vaccine.

We in the so-called "developed" world seem to have forgotten the toll such horrific illnesses and diseases have taken, can take, and do take on the unvaccinated, particularly in poorer countries. I wish the naysayers could visit Cambodia and meet a peasant farmer who saved his first child from death by typhoid fever by selling his land to pay for antibiotics, only to have another child die from T.F. because there was nothing left to sell for further treatment (and forget vaccines! No one can afford those.) Meanwhile, my privileged husband and I travelled with protection of vaccines that are utterly affordable in Canada (or free, if they are consdireed medically necessary.)

I was born just after the big polio outbreaks here, but growing up, I met plenty of people who had suffered from polio, and I was extremely grateful to have been vaccinated myself. No vaccine is perfect but I'd much rather take my chances with a shot (with a very tiny chance of side effects) than risk an illness like polio, typhoid fever, or hey, how about rabies for my dog?!

I believe in science, studies, and facts. End of story. Thanks for a great article.
