Isn't it funny sometimes how certain names become associated with specific people? I feel sorry for people with a similar or same name. Just today I saw a client named Pamela Andersen. Yes, slightly different than the actress/model Pamela Anderson. But the name made me look a few times to make sure I saw it correctly. I also went to school with a Steven King (as opposed to the author, Stephen King).
Now sometimes you do get real celebrities in private practice. I once had a local morning radio DJ for a client, as well as a woman who had a minor part in a new TV show. A friend of mine had the singer Bobby Brown as a client (yes, the real one!). I think this is an interesting part of veterinary practice, because you get to see a completely different side of people, and realize that they are just pet owners.
So what about my colleagues out there? Has anyone treated the pets of legitimate celebrities? Anyone else know people with names similar to public figures?
