As I’ve mentioned, not only does our internist make house calls, but also Charlotte’s veterinarian. But, I’ve never told you that physical therapists also come to the house.
Today was my first seance with my “out patient” therapist. I’ve known him for years and he has an extraordinary reputation in our corner of the world. Everyone at rehab raves about him. One of the main reasons I am one of his biggest fans, apart from the obvious, is that he is also an equine massage therapist.
He says that sometimes he wishes he lived in the United States or England where his horse metier would be appreciated and respected unlike in France where it is not universally considered worthwhile. Still, he has many clients because we live in horse country.

He’ll be back tomorrow. Charlotte loves him which gave me the opportunity to discuss her rheumatoid arthritis. He treats many two-legged patients with serious arthritis problems and he, like several of you, suggested taking her off her current food, which after reading the ingredients I discovered does have cereal in the mix, and giving her “food that logically makes sense for a dog.” He has five dogs including a 17-year-old Labrador mix. All eat cereal free food.
It’s a gorgeous day for a walk which is what he told me to do so I’m off. . .
