“I grew up in Hazelton, BC, which is the northernmost point on what we now call the Highway of Tears. My father was a family physician there.  Almost all of the physicians and dentists and many of the nurses lived on the hospital grounds... There was no veterinarian for about 100 kilometres, so my dad would spay and neuter cats in our basement with upside down desk lamps hanging from the ceiling. My brother and I were his assistants.  That was my first introduction to the anesthetic ketamine.” #doctorsofinstagram #rural #medicine #health #firstnations
