Berkeley Veterinary Center’s Top 5 Blogs of 2019

The older we get, the faster time seems to fly right by us. This cross-cultural phenomenon can be explained by “ratio theory,” a 140-year-old concept that suggests we constantly compare intervals of passing time with how long we’ve lived so far. In other words, a single year to a small child comprises a large percentage of their life, whereas a mere 12 months to a person of middle age is a scant percentage. Experts say that the reason for this is because as we age, fewer meaningful events happen to us. 

This really couldn’t be further from the truth at  Berkeley Veterinary Center, a place that values even the smallest victories. Whether or not we’re consciously focused on our perception of time, we can tell you that this past year gave us many reasons to be grateful.

Our monthly pet care blogs are inspired by our ever-growing community of pet owners, and published online so that you may better care for your best friend.
