Veterinary stepping stones #9

Today was much busier than usual so it was all hands on deck throughout the day. There were many ops and consultations and as time went on and I was given many more responsibilities. A few things that happened today were:

  • A very restless Spaniel needed two lumps removing, they weren't anything serious luckily but he wasn't too keen on us nevertheless.
  • The beautiful Newfoundland puppy came back in, his leg is gradually getting better and he ran straight towards me, even with a slight limp.
  • A big bubbly Labrador came in for a shoulder x-ray, I was kneeling on the floor with him when all of a sudden the anesthetic kicked in and he flopped onto the floor face first, he was unharmed but it gave me quite a shock!
  • I found a new found love for the dog name pebbles, I mean, how cute!
  • A blind dog came in, I found it ever so sad that he was bumping into table legs etc. He was referred to a specialist.
Overall, a successful day!
