Reindeer Pains

Dr. Oakley has a full slate of home clinic visits with an angry cat that may have diabetes and a dog with an uncomfortable anal gland problem. Then, a definite rarity in these parts is an exotic 38-year-old blue and gold parrot in need of a nail and beak trim. But first up is Skippy, a reindeer of concern to the Yukon Wildlife Preserve because after two surgeries, his umbilical hernia continues to reappear. Can Dr. Oakley relieve him of his discomfort?
