This article originally appeared on Dr. Mahaney’s The Daily Vet column on PetMD as Moving On, But Not Too Far… Dr. Mahaney Bids Adieu to Daily Vet.
It’s inevitable that all good things must come to an end, so this is going to be my last Daily Vet blog post for petMD
Since starting way back in 2011, I’ve greatly enjoyed the opportunity to contribute my veterinary perspective. I appreciate the ongoing audience participation in the form of comments (especially from TheOldBroad), even when readers may have a point of view different from mine.
I’ll still be doing special projects for petMD, and I’ll continue my weekly column, Pet-Lebrity News, on Pet360, where I put a health and safety spin on current events involving celebrities and pets. (Check it out and sign up for convenient e-mail delivery!)
So, with this being my last Daily Vet piece, I wanted to share some of my contributions that I feel have been most influential, controversial, and relevant to canine and feline owners and public health.
