    I miss Syllabus week!

    I started my third year of vet school last Monday. Our class is already worked in the small animal clinic, palpated a fake cow and intubated and placed catheters on fake dogs. 

    The second week of September will be real animals.

    Sept 9th is my first canine castration!

    Sept 10th is my first rectal palpation of a cow.

    This all came out of one itty bitty puppy.  

    Truly loving shelter medicine.  Getting to work with every breed from chihuahuas to Irish Wolfhound (Seriously the biggest dog!!) I am beginning to think cats come in every color under the sun. We have the post-easter bunnies start to be surrendered.

    Spending my summer interning at the county animal shelter’s veterinary clinic.

    The little piglet up there was a hog that the vet needed to do a health check before animal control office released it to a better location. The guinea pig was waking up from her spay surgery. The stone was a bladder stone collected from a pomeranian. The cutie in the bottom is about the the size of a frenchie. She is also being fostered out at the moment.

    We spend the morning spaying and neutering shelter animals, TNR cats and a few animals from a public assistance program. The afternoon is spent making rounds of the shelter animals. I am seeing such a wide variety of animals in all sorts of conditions.

    I’ll try an update more!

    Decided to go red, thought the name was appropriate.
