When I saw this article, I was reminded of something that happened my senior year in vet school when I was on the large animal rotation. Isn't it weird how you never forget some things? Anyway, the large animal clinician took several of us out to a farm in Alabama on a call to castrate a pig. When we arrived and informed the farmer why we were there, his reply was, "You'll have to come back some other time; it's a full moon." Really?
VPI analyzed their claims records and came up with the 10 most dangerous days for a pet in 2010. Surprisingly, days of a full moon and Friday the 13th were below average for claims.
