jenny, knowing that you're a human medicine person makes me apologize for,
and revise, my statement regarding your statements sounding like an ad.....

would i have been in the first line of beta-testers for penicillin? probably
not. would i have used it when it only had provisional approval, was very
expensive, and the only research available was provided by the one company
had a financial investment in it? maybe, if there were ENOUGH research, over
enough time, and if i didn't know way too many vets who have the same
objections that sally's had.

thanks for explaining your decision-making process: actually, i'm quite

instead of charging people to be their research subjects....
