Dr. Lennox recently returned from a visit to Poland, to teach at the VetForum conference in the city of Lodz. It's always fun to meet colleagues from around the world, and see how exotic animal medicine is different, and in many ways just the same. In Poland exotic pets are increasing in popularity, and more people are bringing them to the veterinarian for care. My host Dr. Agnieszka Drohobycka had time to show me some interesting sites in Krakow. Perhaps the most interesting was the wonderful "log cabin" she and her husband are restoring. It was great to stay with them, and walk to the local bakery for bread and the neighbor's cow for fresh milk!
