So, fun story. For every major operation/milestone, I bring my vet clinic treats. When I had my Mexican street dog spayed, I brought them chips and salsa, and a large piñata filled to the brim with candy.
Later that evening, I was sent a video of the entire staff beating the piñata and laughing maniacally.
Moral of the story: Give your vet clinic fun presents. They will appreciate it, and you will be forever loved by the staff.
I did something today… I went to a vet clinic to present myself to the vet and ask them if I can spend some time in the clinic to refresh my knowledge. I was beyond stressed but they were very nice and completely okay with me hanging around! I’m super proud of myself!
I only have 5 exams this week so less stressful compared to last week’s mountain of 12 exams. 🙃😴 I also have a few clinical cases to present but it’s alright. I’m slowly getting by. Thanks for asking and happy Valentine’s mate! :)
I’ve started with anatomy, so it’s more than appropriate to continue with something closely related, such as histology and embryology. Somewhere they are taught and examined together with anatomy, somewhere they are separate. I’ve been fortunate enough to have the separate course and undergo sheer histology and embryology exam.
I hope for you that you find an incredible partner. Find a mentor, a veteran on there last leg, “retired on duty”, and spark thier creativity to teach again. So much more credit should be given to experience. Find a veteran and pic thier brain. Challenge them in a respectful way. Watch them. Learn from them.
Understand this field is fluid and constantly changing but some things never change. Understand that patient presentation is largely first hand experience. Those text book presentations are few and far between. You will rarely have the exact answers….and that’s ok. Base your treatment decisions on clinical presentation and a solid foundation in physiological understanding and you will be just fine.

This dog jumped onto the counter and ate a pile of chicken wings. The top radiographs are a few hours after ingestion, the bones can be seen in the stomach and intestine. The concern was that the bones could become stuck or puncture the stomach requiring surgery.
The next images are one day later and all the bones are gone, no surgery needed. Making the choice to wait on surgery involves clinical presentation, radiographic appearance, and experience. If your dog eats anything unusual you should never wait, go see your vet.
Emergency medicine has been a very good rotation thus far. There has been a good variety of clinical presentations and many more learning opportunities.
Having said that, I have not felt this tired in a while. Part of it is the mental and physical demands of the shift. I am constantly thinking, constantly on my feet. The shifts have been so busy these past few days I have hardly eaten while working. Never a good thing.
In addition, my shifts have been scheduled in an unusual fashion, that it is hard to be fully rested in between them. Suffice it to say, my caffeine intake has started to climb.
It has made me more conscientious of myself. I am definitely not suited for shift work. I like the deliberate and orderly pace of a set schedule. It helps bring order to my life.
At the end of the day, this is just another chapter in my residency, and a transient blip in my sleep schedule. My next rotation will be better. For now, I just need to focus on studying and learning everything that I can.
Heartworm negative, she’s about 10 years old, has sarcoptic mange, and a couple of mammary tumors. The vet advised me to take her to one of the no-kill shelters in town that’s also a low cost vet clinic, present her case, and hopefully they’ll take her in. We’ll probably give a donation as well.
She needs at-home treatment I can’t provide with how contagious she is (I have 3 dogs at home). I’m really hoping they take her because I literally will have no place to bring her if they don’t.
I want her to make it so bad but with her age I’m not sure how much fight she has left. I’ll keep yall updated.
He said it’s pretty much up to her to decide if she wants to live or not.
