I had the distinct honor, joy and pleasure of working for Dr. Jay Merriam a number of years ago. Each patient was treated like his only one, and each client treated like a best friend. This man is so far ahead of any other equine veterinarian-he is truly in a class of his own. He's forgotten more than most Veterinarians ever learn. To work for this man was a never ending experiance-he never spoke above your individual level of understanding and learning, and his caring and compassion knew no bounds. The privledge of being around him as he went around his day to day rounds was amazing. I will forever hold him as the standard, which other's will be measured against.
