Megan Senatori, DeWitt Ross & Stevens, s.c.

Q: I went to veterinary school because I have always loved animals. I certainly do not specialize in people problems, but, I have a client that I am growing concerned about. She is a young woman with a very sweet dog. Her dog has been my patient for about three years. My client loves her dog dearly and is always concerned and attentive to him. When the young woman came to see me last week, I noticed that she had bruising around her neck. I did not think it was my business to inquire about it, but, this is not the first time I've noticed something like this. I have also noticed that her dog has become very shy and skittish around the men in my office. I do not know how the dog behaves around my client's boyfriend because I've never met him, but, I understand from my client that they've been together for years. Long story short, I am concerned that perhaps my client is a victim of domestic abuse, but I also think it is probably none of my business. Domestic abuse is a people problem that does not affect animals, right?
