If you've been reading this blog for any amount of time you know that I'm a proponent of Wellness for pets. Usually concepts and treatments go from animals to people but in the case of Wellness it happened the other way around. Wellness for people was adopted by the veterinary medical community. One of the first places to embrace the concept an implement Wellness plans for Cats and Dog was Boston's venerated Angell Memorial Animal Hospital. I literally wrote the book on it, The Angell Memorial Animal Hospital Book of Wellness and Preventive Care for Dogs. Why just dogs? Ask the publisher. It was originally supposed to be two books but they decided not to go ahead with the Cat book. Why? There was a general concept then that cat people don't buy books.  I beg to differ but it's a moot point now.
