We are everyone’s house dogs


At the risk of ending up in the dog house, you shouldn’t let the tail wag the dog. Your work load sounds a bitch. Perhaps pack in some of the longer hours. Back in the day of course we would see 30 patients a surgery, two surgeries a day. 9-10 surgeries a week. Plus home visits, about 5 usually, but up to 10. Night calls to the house on a rota plus weekend surgeries and on call. Siriusly, every dog has his day.
