dc.description.abstractEntering Cornell in 1930 and graduating at the height of the Depression, Dr. Joseph Merenda anticipated a career in large animal medicine. However, he unexpectedly secured a job with the renowned New York City veterinarian, C.P. Zepp, whose midtown Manhattan practice was one of the most advanced at that time. Despite the paucity of information available to small animal practitioners, Merenda and his city colleagues developed innovative and imaginative treatments and procedures to supplement the modest instruction in dog and cat medicine they had received at Cornell. With the exception of his service in World War II, Merenda spend his entire professional life in the Zepp practice, retiring to his current residence in Brooklyn in the mid 1970s.en_US
