Our veterinarian specializing in dermatology retired recently. Dr. Reinke was part of Team Cleo for many years. Cleo is a very allergic dog so I was conflicted when the vet's letter arrived announcing her decision. I was happy for her. She was kind enough to suggest a new practice for us to try, but still, I was bummed. It has a taken a long time to curate this team of trusted caregivers.
Given that so much of what we brought to Dr. Reinke was in the form of vague stories, her compassionate response was always appreciated. She never rolled her eyes or sighed with exasperation like someone a little more jaded or overwhelmed by their workload might.
So goodbye Dr. Reinke, and happy retirement! Thank you for your patience. You gave insightful responses to all of our questions about seasonal issues, homeopathic alternatives, and various drug therapy.
