Canine Pneumonia?

What’s with the ‘P’ in P-neumonia? Like, what’s with the ‘h’ in diphtheria? As we name diseases, we need extra, confusing letters that add nothing to the phonetic pronunciation? While we are at it, then, why don’t we ‘pronunce’ as opposed to ‘pronounce?’

I thought for sure that Dr. Tom Davis, Cherry’s father, was a Vet! Maybe he just does large animal as opposed to house-pets… But isn’t Andy a large breed dog? Doesn’t that count for something?

I might help, Doctor, if you ran an IV or something…
