More Than
An Honorable
Profession
From the Desk
of Carter Luke, President
A couple of weeks ago, I had
the pleasure of attending a
literary event of the Cape Cod
Writers’ Center. The event was
called “Breakfast with the
Authors.” There was a panel of
four writers who were there to
discuss their recent works: a
Washington political satirist, the

author of a charming children’s
adopted cat, Lunar.
book, someone who wrote
about touring America’s
churches and a veterinarian. That veterinarian happened to be
Dr. Nick Trout from Angell-Boston, talking about his book, “Tell Me
Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing and Hope in my Life as an
Animal Surgeon.”
All four authors were witty, funny, entertaining and knowledgeable
about their topics and themes. As you might imagine, I was more
than a little biased towards one particular author. I think Nick’s
book is a great portrait of a day-in-the-life. It is very heart-warming
and fun in the tradition of James Herriot. He made me smile and
extremely proud to be a part of the Angell family. In addition, he
has a real gift as a writer.
But besides the parts of this event that directly related to writing
and authors, I was struck by a couple of subtleties that came from
the audience. First, in spite of the presence of the other three very
noteworthy and well-known authors, the audience’s questions were
almost entirely directed to Nick. You can also guess whose writing
hand got the biggest workout from autographing books at the end
of the event. It was a reminder that people truly care about animals,
and that they like to read and talk about them.
The other significant subtle quality I could not help but notice
coming from the audience is the enormous respect and trust
people have in veterinarians. Veterinary medicine is much, much
more than an honorable profession. Veterinarians not only P11

One of the icons of my Angell
experience recently passed
away. Dr. T. C. Jones came to
Angell-Boston to head up the
Pathology department in 1957.
He had recently retired from
the Armed Forces Institute of
Pathology and was recruited by
then Chief of Staff, Dr. Gerry
Schnelle, who knew him from
the army.
At that time, Angell was
located at 180 Longwood
Avenue, and one room on the
second floor housed the
Pathology department, including
the clinical path lab. His office
was a partitioned space in one
corner. Necropsies were
performed on the first floor
near the Doctors’ room.
Within a few years, Dr. Jones
designed the construction of an
entire wing on the third floor,
which housed an extensive
clinical lab, a work area where
tissues were processed, a
necropsy area and several
offices. He received a large
research grant from the
National Institute of Health,
which paid for a great deal of
equipment, as well as salaries.
The grant studied the aging
process in dogs, but the interns
renamed it the “Why Old Dogs
Die” grant.

The Angell Internship
Experience P5
Richard Roberts, DVM ‘59
Our internship was 15 months
long; each of us spent six
weeks in Pathology — two
weeks in the clinical path lab
and four weeks performing
necropsies and reading slides
with Dr. Jones.
No casual necropsies were
permitted. Dr. Jones insisted on
a completed requisition that
included a pertinent history and
laboratory findings. A typical
necropsy took most of the day.
Each organ was measured,
described and weighed; sections
were taken and preserved for

Lisa Moses, DVM, DACVIM
Dear Fellow Alumni,
For those of you who passed through Angell in the past 15 years, it
may not surprise you to know I have moved on to directing the
new Pain Medicine Service here at Angell-Boston. My self-declared
crusade (aka “nagging”) to improve pain management practices at
Angell has earned me a regular place on the “walk of shame” for
incoming interns. So, I have mostly put my Emergency and Critical
Care days behind me and now spend most of my time practicing
pain medicine in the outpatient clinic, the surgery/anesthesia
department and assisting with high risk anesthesia.
Angell’s Pain Medicine Service operates both an inpatient and an
outpatient clinic that incorporates a medical acupuncture practice,
as well. I am happy to assist any of you with phone or email
consults, especially if you practice far from one of the few existing
pain services. The service consults on and treats any companion
animal species, including avian and exotics species.
For those of you wondering what a Pain Medicine Service can do
for your patients and owners, it’s relevant to note that the clinic
serves several distinct patient populations. The clinic works in
conjunction with primary clinicians, not as a substitute. Some of my
patients are difficult to diagnose and/or treat for pain because of the
complexity of their other medical conditions. For example, I see
many dogs with pre-existing liver or kidney disease that desperately
need pain relief from their chronic osteoarthritis pain. Since I
approach pain management from the perspective of an internist, I
integrate their other treatments and modify the pain management
plan to reflect this. Another subset of my patient population is

veterinary medical acupuncture (Angell intern class ’94)

cancer patients, for whom pain management is often the key to
extended survival times. The clinic also serves owners and
patients with neurological disease either as an adjunct to surgical
therapy or as a non-surgical alternative to treatment and
rehabilitation from common problems like IVDD or stroke. All
patients receive multi-modal pain management, including non-drug
therapy such as acupuncture.
Perhaps most important is the cost of care by our service is quite
reasonable for specialty medicine and can provide a realistic
alternative to clients who may not be able to afford expensive
diagnostics and surgery, but still want to do what they can to make
their pets comfortable. I hope that busy primary clinicians, referring
specialists and concerned pet owners see the Pain Medicine Service
as a place where the focus is on pain assessment and quality of life
management. Do not hesitate to contact me at 617 541-5140 or
[email protected] if you have a patient that you think would
benefit from pain management.

Dentistry
Update
William Rosenblad, DVM
February has come and gone, and with it, another National Pet
Dental Health Month. Unfortunately for our patients, dental disease
does not occur only in February. Pet owners are becoming more
aware of dental disease as pet food companies and producers of
chew treats are marketing their products as maintaining dental
health. The majority of veterinary schools have been slow to
improve the dentistry portion of our education, leaving significant
misinformation or lack of information available to pet owners.
The following will help you address some of this
misinformation.
Anesthesia risk can be avoided by hand-scaling cooperative
patients in the exam room. This is one of the most common
issues in veterinary dentistry. There are even “professional pet teeth
cleaners” available to perform these “cleanings” without veterinary
supervision. The plain truth is that this type of procedure is more
than just not helpful, it is actually harmful. While a great deal of
periodontal disease occurs on the outside of the teeth, not all
diseased areas can be reached from the outside surface of the
teeth. Any scaling (hand instruments or ultrasonic) will leave a
microscopically roughened surface and should be polished after the
procedure. Gum recession is permanent, so any damage to the
gingiva will lead to increased periodontal disease in the future (not
to mention causing immediate pain for your patient and potentially
anyone within biting range!). Most importantly, it is what is below
the gum line that will lead to tooth loss and systemic disease.
Subgingival cleaning and dental radiographs cannot be performed in
a conscious veterinary patient (I ask my clients if they think that
their dog or cat will hold a bite-wing dental film for a radiograph).
See the Web site of the American Veterinary Dental College
(www.avdc.org) under AVDC Position Statements for “Companion
Animal Dental Scaling Without Anesthesia.”
Chewing bones will help keep my dog’s teeth clean.
Bones are one of the most common causes of tooth fractures in
veterinary patients. They may occasionally cause some calculus to
crack off, but by the time bones get to the butcher shop, pet store,
etc., they are pretty much all mineral. No part of the tooth is that
hard, so when something has to give, it is the tooth. Given how
most dogs chew, with objects wedged into the back of their
mouths, it is no surprise that the maxillary fourth premolar is the
most commonly fractured tooth from chewing. In addition, when
they fracture the tooth on one side, they often switch sides and
fracture the other side. Any bone can be damaging, so I run down
the list with my clients: soup bone, shin bone, steak bone, sterilized
bone, marrow bone or knuckle. Also in the “too hard” category are

hooves and the harder Nylabone products. Chewing non-damaging
products can indeed help keep dogs’ teeth and gums healthier
due to the mechanical effect of chewing (food or treat particles
and saliva working between the inside of the maxillary teeth and
outside of the mandibular teeth) and the increased saliva flow
with mastication.
My pet’s teeth are brushed every time he/she goes to
the groomer. Brushing at least once daily is the recommendation
for veterinary patients. Plaque builds up daily and mineralizes into
calculus within 36 hours. Brushing can remove plaque, but not
calculus. There are several reasons dog and cat tooth brushing is
easier than most people think. Dogs get caries (cavities) very
infrequently and cats do not get them at all (FORL are not cavities).
Therefore, a large amount of time for the fluoride in the toothpaste
to be in the mouth is not necessary, thus greatly decreasing the
time needed to brush. The outside of the maxillary teeth (especially
the fourth premolar and first molar) is the most important area to
brush and also happens to be the easiest area to reach with the
pet’s mouth closed. Most dog and cat teeth can be efficiently
brushed in 10-20 seconds, using an appropriately-sized brush,
making a circular motion along the outside gum lines, working from
back to front, and then following with a reward. Since caries are not
a concern, the brushing can be done any time of day, although
brushing the same time every day is a good idea for routine.
Additional helpful material can be found at PetPlace.com, searching
for “What is a ‘dental’ and what does it mean for my pet?” and
“How to brush your dog’s [or cat’s] teeth.”

like brain tissue, that look relatively homogeneous in CT images.
Additional imaging planes are available and the study can be
customized to the patient’s particular disease. Most of our MRI
studies to date have been done on brains and backs of dogs and
cats exhibiting signs of CNS disease or occult lameness. Bony
structures typically do not image well in MRI studies, but tumors or
inflammatory disease in bone, brain or peripheral nervous tissue, as
well as the soft-tissue structures of joints, are much clearer than
they are in CT images.

Diagnostic Imaging department at Angell-Boston.
CT/MRI at
Angell-Boston
When routine or contrast radiographic studies (or even abdominal
ultrasound exams) are insufficient to diagnose pets that come to
Angell-Boston for care, we can offer more advanced cross-sectional
imaging modalities of CT and MRI. The Diagnostic Imaging
department can perform these studies on in-patients with their
in-house CT and MRI scanners, Monday through Saturday, from
8:30am to 5:00pm. Both modalities allow better visualization of
internal structures and contrast resolution found in radiographs
and require that the pet be under general anesthesia, but have
different strengths.
Computed Tomography (CT) uses X-rays to obtain images of
tissues in a plane that is perpendicular to the scan plane, typically
the axis of the spine of the animal being imaged or the length of
the long bones of the limbs. Images of varying thickness can be
obtained singly, with the table advancing a set distance between
scans, or in a series, as the table moves continuously through the
plane of the X-ray tube and detectors. Bone detail is excellent, with
visible mineralization in some tissues — intervertebral discs, for
example — which is undetectable in radiographs. CT studies of the
head have almost completely replaced the old radiographic skull
series at Angell and are especially useful in imaging the skulls,
including the teeth and ears, of our exotic patients. Other situations in
which CT is now routinely used in place of or in addition to
radiography include animals with chronic nasal discharge or otitis, and
suspected elbow dysplasia or intervertebral disc disease. It is also
invaluable to decisions on surgical approaches or radiation treatments.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) relies on tissue responses to
magnetic forces and radio waves to generate images without
radiation. Soft tissue delineation in MRI is much better for tissues,
P4
ALUMNI NEWS JUNE 2008
CT scans are less expensive than MRI studies and typically take less
time, which means that anesthesia charges are lower as well, a
circumstance that sometimes influences which modality is
employed. Diagnostic results can be obtained with both types of
axial imaging, however, the radiologists work with the other
specialists involved to provide the most appropriate imaging for
each patient.
Planning for the Future?
Did you know...
...that you can provide for your own retirement even as you
support the mission of the MSPCA-Angell? If you would like
supplemental retirement income, you may wish to explore the
benefits of a deferred payment charitable gift annuity. By making the
gift now, but reserving the right to receive income at a later time,
you can maximize your charitable deduction. By funding the annuity
with appreciate assets, such as stock, you can avoid the capital gains
tax that would have been due had you sold the stock — and enjoy
income based on the full market value!

New Angell Study
Underway
Angell-Boston is conducting a study on healthy dogs with early
renal disease. The objective is to determine the effect of dietary
protein on quality of life and longevity in these dogs. Owners are
provided with dry dog food, a renal workup on their dogs,
monitoring, medications related to kidney disease and stabilization
of a uremic crisis. The study, conducted by Rebecca Remillard,
PhD, DVM, DACVN (Nutrition); Maureen Carroll, DVM,
DACVIM (Internal Medicine); and Greg Rapoport, DVM,
DACVIM (Cardiology), lasts for a total of 24 months.

examination. Upon completion, the findings of the procedure were
demonstrated to Dr. Jones, the Pathology resident and usually the
clinician involved in the case. It was an arduous task, but the
experience and discipline was a valuable part of the internship.
Dr. Jones had a profound impact on many careers. Most notably,
he trained Dr. James Carpenter who took over as head of
the department in 1973 until his retirement in l994. Two years
ago, I had the privilege of accompanying both Jim and Dr. Jones
on a tour of the new hospital and adoption center facilities, then
under construction.
The cost to provide state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for all
the disciplines at Angell is staggering. I know that some of you have
been turned off by the expanding list on our appeal envelope. I can
assure you that we have not lost sight of our mission, which is to
support the internship and training program here in any way that we
can. Our Emergency Loan Fund is intact, and our intern
endowments to help fund the internship are growing; however, I am
frequently approached to see if alumni might help with a project or
a needed piece of equipment — hence the expanding list. Your help
with any of these endeavors would be greatly appreciated.
Intern and Resident graduation this year is June 27th and you are
invited. Check with me or the hospital office for the time of day.
The Angell Internship:
A Perspective from
the Hole
April 1, 2008. 86 days until graduation. Our lives, thus far as
Angell interns, have been dominated by lists of all kinds. Problem
lists, plans, to-do lists and most invasively, The List. Rather than
wax philosophical about the trials and tribulations that we, and all
previous classes of Angell interns have endured, we’ve decided to
make a few lists of our own in tribute to this past year.
Subjective: We are 15 strong and down an average of 8.7#.
Objective: HR 60-180, NMA, occasional panic attacks and
runs of V-tach.
Abd: very soft, flabby, nonpainful. Hungry – always.
UG: likely UTI from urine retention. Sexually intact –
but what’s the point?
EENT: mm dry and tacky. Intermittently blind and deaf.
Or just not paying attention.
MSI: Severe generalized muscle wasting and weakness noted.
Neuro: Permanently altered mentation, periods of
unresponsiveness.
Assessment: Almost DONE! Exhausted but a heck of a lot
smarter and tougher.
Plan: Residencies, internships, employment and more!
Despite the whining and complaints that are so common
among interns, there are also a number of reasons that we’re
all glad to be here at Angell.

children; Jack and Izzi and two dogs; Dixie and Dan.
Tristan Weinkle reports “After leaving Angell and touring the world
in search of the deadly Ebola virus, I stumbled through a residency
in small animal internal medicine at Cornell. Ella and I are now living
a life of Southern Charm in Columbia, South Carolina with our
two-year-old daughter, Naja (pronounced Naiya). After having
made it through vet school without adopting any of the one-eyed,
one-legged, rabid farm cats taken in by my classmates, we
experienced a moment of great weakness and adopted Miles, a
miniature schnauzer with a porto-systemic shunt, parenchymal liver
disease, IBD, atopy and various neuroses (all limbs and eyes
accounted for, however). I am co-owner of a growing referral
practice and we are on schedule to open our new facility this
summer…which reminds me, we are always looking for new
specialists of every kind, if anyone is interested! Best to all!”
Akiko Westerhout moved to Seattle after her Angell internship
where she works part time in Emergency/Critical Care at an ER
specialty hospital called ACCES, commuting by ferry from
Bainbridge Island. She also works in general practice locally.
Dr. Westerhout reports, “I was married with one child during my
internship and that child is going on 11 years old. I don't think he
was too scarred having not seen his mother for that year. I also had
another boy in 2003 and he just had his fifth birthday. Besides the
kids and the husband, the entourage includes a new Newfoundland,
a Lab mix and my old cat Manx. With the kids a bit older, we have
gotten back to a few hobbies such as snowboarding, kayaking,
biking and running, but mostly just trying to keep up with the kids.”
Scott Teague currently resides in Providence, Rhode Island. He and
his wife live with their dog Zoe and cat Vegas. Scott married
Rachel Russo (Tufts ‘06) in Newport, Rhode Island in September
2007. Instead of favors, they gave a donation to the MSPCA-Angell.
Scott has been at the VCA Northborough Animal Hospital in
Northborough, Massachusetts for the last five years in general
practice. Scott says, “My time there has been great and I have had
the opportunity to practice great medicine with good people. I
have developed a particular interest and niche in dentistry. My long
term goals are to move to the North Shore of Massachusetts with
my wife and settle into a community to practice permanently.”
Ray Cahill-Morasco We have lost track of Ray. Does anyone know
where he is?
Class of 1999
In last year’s Alumni newsletter we reported on the Class of 1999.
We mistakenly omitted Dr. Brooks and we managed to catch up
with Dr. Went with whom we had lost contact.
Dawn (Tandus) Brooks left Angell and began working at Countryside
Veterinary Hospital in Chelmsford, Massachusetts and has been
there ever since. She says, “It is a great hospital with everything we
need in-house, and we are constantly busy. I never did a residency
because I didn't find my passion until a few years ago. I have come
to enjoy treating the avian and exotic patients at my practice and
would love to pursue ABVP certification when it becomes available
for exotics. I live in Westford, Massachusetts with my husband,
Robert and my daughters, Syndey and Jordyn. My dog, KC, is almost
13 (yikes!) and doing well. We have one cat, Arlene, who is seven.
Right now my life revolves around the girls and their activities, but
when I do have time to myself, I enjoy my crafts, reading,
photography; anything I can do after they have gone to bed!”
Catherine Went reports, “After 12 years of living in Massachusetts,
I moved back to Canada in the fall of 2006, dragging along my
American husband and two cats. Actually, Darren had been offered
a great opportunity at a young biomedical company in Toronto,
developing surgical navigation devices for non-invasive procedures.
We were both looking forward to giving up our one hour car
commutes in Boston and improving our quality of life. I found a
great job at a smaller clinic and am really enjoying the cases, clients
and staff. We bought a house in the city this fall and had a busy
couple of months of renovating before we moved in January. We
managed to find the perfect neighborhood where you can walk to
the subway, Starbucks and restaurants, yet still have a backyard and
deck. I even get to walk to work!”

In Memoriam
Thomas Carlyle Jones
Dr. Thomas Carlyle (“T.C.” or “Carl”) Jones passed away on
December 9, 2007, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, at the age of 95.
The veterinary profession credits Dr. Jones with the inception of
veterinary pathology as an organized specialty in North America,
and he was the founder of veterinary pathology at what was then
Angell Memorial Animal Hospital.
Dr. Jones received his DVM from Washington State University,
and upon graduation, joined the US Army, serving in its
Veterinary Corps for 25 years. For several of those years, he was
the officer in charge of the US Army Veterinary Research
Laboratory, conducting research on the diseases of Army horses.
During these years, he made numerous visits to the Army Medical
Museum (now the Armed Forces Institute of
Pathology) in Washington, D.C., to consult
with its medical pathologists. His research
work during the years 1939-1946 was given
a Legion of Merit award.
After returning to civilian life in 1957, Dr. Jones began his second
career as director of Pathology of (formerly known as) Angell
Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston. Angell did not have a
Pathology department before his arrival. He also initiated an Angell
program of residency training in veterinary pathology, under the
auspices of Harvard University.
Dr. Jones retired from Angell in 1967, only to begin a third career
as professor of comparative pathology at the New England
Regional Primate Center of the Harvard Medical School. He was
professor emeritus from 1982 until 1995 but his activity in the field
of veterinary pathology continued unabated.
In each of his activities, Dr. Jones conducted formal and informal
teaching designed to provide a source of veterinary pathologists for
the Armed Forces and for civilian employment. Much of his
teaching was one-on-one or in small groups — settings in which his
quest for perfection could be communicated
readily to the students. In the wider circle of
the ACVP, he also became an exemplar of
high quality in continuing education, in this
case by organizing annual seminars on
various topics. His influence on these was
incalculably high because he could invariably
obtain the services of the leading teachers in
veterinary and medical school as moderators.
He achieved success by perseverance,
imagination and hard work, coupled with an
engaging manner that excited and inspired
others to work for a better ACVP.
In 1946, he was appointed Chief of the
Veterinary Division of the Armed Forces
Institute of Pathology (AFIP) as well as
Registrar of the Registry of Veterinary
Pathology. He formed many contacts with
medical pathologists at the AFIP, some of
them the leading figures in human pathology
in the country. Observing that the various
branches of human pathology were

a very tough 15-year-old mixed-breed

long and complex medical history that
includes chronic liver enzyme elevations
and multiple surgeries at Angell-Boston for both thoracolumbar

cruciate ligaments. As a result
of his IVDD and ruptured

chronic pain and immobility of

assessment of pain. After this was
accomplished during his initial evaluation appointment, we settled
on a multi-modal approach to his problems. He was started on
several medications for chronic pain, including a reduced-dose of an
NSAID, along with beginning a home exercise program to help
improve his balance and proprioception and electro-acupuncture to
provide a side-effect-free method of controlling pain and improving
vestibular deficits.
Follow Up Within three weeks of beginning treatment, Kyro
resumed many of the behaviors that he had not been able to
perform in the past year.

but these doctors are also entrusted to interpret our dog’s
and cat’s physical, psychological and emotional well-being.
A lot of us non-veterinarians “speak” and “understand” the
language of dog and cat (and horse and bird, etc.), but we need
help from time to time. Truth be told, although we often think we
know what is going on with Fluffy and Bonkers, deep down, we are
never really sure. But we do know this: veterinarians almost always
know the real answers! We trust you… a lot!
I could just feel the trust in the room that day at the Writer’s
Center event. But every time I am in an Angell exam room as a
client with my doctor and technician team, I feel that on a very
personal level. As a loving parent of dogs and cats, I trust Angell.
Just about everyone reading this newsletter could tell stories that
are like those Nick Trout has written about. But although maybe
not all of you could write such a great book, you are all people we
animal-folks believe, respect and deeply appreciate. Yes, an
honorable profession and a whole lot more.

FYI
Dr. James L. Carpenter, Dr. James L.
Carpenter is probably one of the
most influential and prominent
veterinarians to have been
associated with Angell. Jim (or more
commonly, “Carp”) was an intern at
Angell in 1960-61 and was
subsequently asked to stay on the
staff. In 1965, Dr. Gus Thornton,
Chief of Staff, appointed Jim
Director of Clinics, a role he
continued for the next nine years.
During this time, Jim began his
training in Pathology under Drs. T.
C. Jones, Charley Gilmore and Irwin
Leav, and in 1974 he became the
Director of the Department of
Pathology. Jim ran the Pathology
department for the next 20 years,
until he left Boston to return to his
native Wisconsin. During his time at
Angell, Jim trained many future
pathologists and was actively
involved in many clinical cases.
Initially being trained as a clinician,
Jim was always a valuable resource
for the clinicians upstairs. When
there was a tough diagnostic
challenge we could always go down
to the “garden level” and talk to
Jim. He would take the time to
listen, think and give you a fresh
perspective and excellent incite on
the case. This was a tradition that
has thankfully continued through
our current pathologist.
believe, but he has published almost
100 scientific articles, including some
of the earliest work on feline
hyperthyroidism, canine lead
poisoning and canine neosporosis.
He also wrote the largest reports
on feline toxoplasmosis and feline
and canine thymomas. Of his many
awards and honors at Angell, Jim
was most proud of receiving the
Mary Mitchell Humane Award five
times. More recently, Jim was
honored with the Harold W. Casey
teaching award presented to him in
Boston in 2005. This special award
is a lifetime achievement award for
sustained excellence in teaching
Veterinary Pathology.
On a personal level, Jim has six
children and eight grandchildren.
Grace, his wife, retired from nursing
in 1994, and the couple will
celebrate their 50th wedding
anniversary on December 27, 2008.
I asked Jim what he thought was
special about his time at Angell and
he replied, “It was the veterinary
staff, including interns, residents and
Harvard NIH trainees in Pathology.
The people were special.”
Jim had already worked at a very
high level at Angell for 34 years
when he left to go to Wisconsin,
and some might think he would
slow down; but it was not in his
nature. He started working as a
diagnostic pathologist at the wellrespected Marshfield Labs in 1994.
He worked full-time until a few
years ago, and in 2005 he finally cut
back to part-time.
Dr. Jim Carpenter has been a
fixture in veterinary medicine for
the past 48 years. It seems hard to
