I love the month of February, possibly because the color red always has been and will continue to be my favorite color. As a chocolate and flower connoisseur, I love everything about Valentine’s Day. And, I think the innovator of National Wear Red Day to support the fight against heart disease is a genius who has brought light to an often over-looked and important health issue for women.
What does all this have to do with veterinary medicine? Unfortunately, in all types of medicine, there are times when the color red is not a welcome sight. From head to toes for pets, the appearance of redness can be quite concerning. So, when is red not a good color?
