It was a month before Christmas and at the North Pole Dr. Tom Meyer was about to play his most critical role. For without healthy reindeer to pull Santa’s sleigh there’d be no presents waiting on Christmas Day. So snapping his boots and donning his cap he traveled north to a spot not found on the map. Where elves tend to reindeer in fields at play brushing their fur and delivering hey. But as Christmas approaches and travel draws near. Someone must come to examine the deer. And ensure that they’re healthy enough for the flight. Pulling non-stop with all of their might. And as president of the AVMA Dr. Meyer has been given final medical say. He examines their fur looking for mites or other critters that can cause painful bites. With stethoscope he listens for their hearts beating strong, or signs of arrhythmia or anything wrong. Hooves should be clean and free of debris that may cause the deer to fly tenderly. While we want to help Santa spread presents and cheer we don’t want disease hitching a ride on the deer. Tests will confirm there’s no brucellosis or chronic wasting disease or tuberculosis. Countries across the world need proof that the deer won’t leave deadly bugs on their roof. Do Dr. Meyer fills out all the paperwork needed to ensure the deer can cross borders unimpeded. With certificate signed Dr. Meyer tell st. Nick that none of his deer are injured or sick. After thorough examination i can tell you that Santa’s reindeer are perfectly healthy in great shape and ready for their upcoming flight.

  1. I love this, Dr. Meyer! I am so glad you have checked Santa's reindeer to assure they are ready for their Christmas Eve flight. We don't want them getting sick along the way or afterwards, or carrying any signs of infection to other places around the world.

  2. I had a wonderful pet reindeer from 1976 till she died of cancer from old age in June of 1990.Elsie looked just like this one.
