Dr Paul Pion, DVM, DACVIM

Dr Pion was asked to be the keynote speaker at the ACVIM 2010 conference. This is the vet who was instrumental in discovering the importance of taurine to cat heart health and he talks about how the discovery was made. But he also touches on how our environment, our support groups, our decisions, and our attitudes help to shape our lives. He is also one of the founders of the VIN (Veterinary Information Network) and he talks about that as well.

Well worth the watch if you have the time. It's in a slide show format so there is a slight pause between slide changes (at least when viewing by DSL).
"We are--each of us--dying; it's how we live in the meantime that makes the difference."

"It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived!"

"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
