well at least my cats did anyway. But I did have a friend once who swore she had hip dysplasia.
I do not think you should throw away your crack pot theories...but nevertheless, I always advocate smoking crack.
The vein think really caught my attention....they have always had problems drawing my blood or putting in IV's as well....at the lab where I usually go, most of the phlebotomists run when they see me coming...there is only one lady, a master of blood, that will even attempt to draw my blood. And even she has problems sometimes...like when she has to draw enough to fill like four vials...she has to do eight, because my vein will only allow each vial to be filled to a certain point before it just plain stops pumping blood...they all fill to exactly the same level....she thinks it very odd. She said my veins roll and hide and she makes me sit with hot packs under a heat lamp doing hand squeeze things for 20 minutes before she will try.
So anyway...how many people here have the same or similar problems with getting their blood drawn?
Interesting...vedy vedy interesting....
Oh and Carl...I am glad you are back. I missed you.
Peace and love and rolly veins,
