My Heroes In Veterinary Medicine 6

That’s it.

Five heroes in veterinary medicine.

One might think that, after three decades in practice, more doctors would qualify.

Let me interject here that I value many icons in the practice of veterinary medicine, doctors whom many of us look up to for providing guidance and standards, especially over a long period of time or with breakthroughs that changed practice forever.

To me, however, a hero is a much more personal relationship than recognition as an icon. Each of these men changed how I practice in fundamental ways that affect every aspect of my work. Each of them personally made me the veterinarian I am today.

Uncle Sam, Dr. Jones, Dr. Huddleston, Dr. Johnson and Dr. Henderson, I salute and thank each of you.
