By Khrysta Imperial Rara
There are three areas that have to be constantly checked for regular and basic grooming at home, according to our guest last Nov. 17, Dr. Rey Oronan, who is currently Faculty-in-Charge at the UP Veterinary Hospital. You’ll have to check the EARS, the EYES and the NAILS of your dog or cat.
He was right. Amon-Ra passed away in the early hours of the morning. But because of Doc Rey’s foresight and compassion (he allowed my cat to go home with me when other vets would probably have not allowed it), I was able to be with my Amon-Ra and comfort him in his last hours.
