Retrieve That Drill, Won’t You?

The Eau Claire dental practice using therapy dogs to keep patients calm gives me pause. Let’s put aside the fact that I’m a cat person: Friendly Golden Retrievers, always seeking approval and requiring constant petting, wouldn’t think twice about nudging the elbow of a drill-wielding dentist undertaking delicate drilling and surgical procedures. Don’t get me started on dog hair invading sterile areas or an enthusiastic tail capable of sending instruments flying to the floor. As a cat mom, I doubt any feline would stoop so low: put up with frantic, chair-clutching patients without pay? Hardly. Meow, dental dog diversions, Meow.
