Top tip hay bundles!
How many of you give hay to the smallies and they wreck the pile, throw it everywhere or toilet on it?
Create hay bundles using the cardboard tube of the finished vet wrap roll for your smallies hay.
It provides a good measure of how much hay to give at a time, becomes good enrichment, makes very little mess, stops it from becoming soiled and easy to judge whether they have eaten any.
The hay bundles are very good for inpatients, surgical or day patients.
Be confident with your exotics as always #youcandothis 💪

We’ve got news! ✨As of Jan 1, Ellie will be interfaced with most major practice management systems! Now its easier than ever to make the switch to Ellie.
We're locking in 2019 prices for clinics that start in December so it's the perfect time to cut the contract cord ✂️ and enjoy no long-term contracts or unexpected price increases, dedicated staff, and all the features of a national laboratory with Ellie!
What are you waiting for? DM us!🙂
Or contact email@example.com.
Are you striving for perfection?
Or are you striving for greatness?
What’s the difference?
Greatness is about YOU. It’s about learning and growing, it’s about making mistakes and getting back up. It’s about becoming a softer, more compassionate person and veterinarian. One who listens without bias, assumes best intention, works hard but establishes firm boundaries so she can play hard and live hard too.
Perfection is about THEM. What THEY think about you. Whether it’s your more seasoned colleague, your mentor, your client, the rando on social media. It’s about being ON, all. the. time. It means caring more about being impressive than authentic. It means striving for the unattainable and then feeling pretty crappy when you can’t get it, or feeling like a fraud and stressing about the day that someone figures out that you’re not perfect.
If you’re like me, the first description sounds WAY better, and if you’re like me, and most women in vetmed, you probably struggle with the second. You might not even know yet that you do.
First, it’s OKAY. And it’s COMMON. You’re not alone or somehow wrong or broken because of it.
Second, it doesn’t have to be that way. You CAN work through this. We can do it together.
Here’s what I do: Get curious! When the urge to be perfect creeps in, you don’t have to get frustrated with yourself, it’s a habit you’ve built for decades! Time to get curious and ask yourself a few questions:
1️⃣ Why do I feel the need to be impressive/perfect?”
2️⃣ Is this about me? Or is it about someone’s opinion of me? Do I care about their opinion?
3️⃣ Is there something I’m trying to control by being perfect that I need to let go of?
And for the love of all goodness, give yourself the grace to do the work it takes to shift from striving for perfect to striving for greatness. It doesn’t happen overnight, but girlfriend, you got this 🙏🏻

💠آشنایی با انواع نخ های جراحی
🔸در این مقاله قصد داریم انواع نخ های جراحی و مشخصات هریک را به شما عزیزان آموزش دهیم.
🔹نخ های بخیه جراحی ٬ نخ های تک و یا چند فیلامنتی استریل می باشد که نقش در کنار هم نگه داشتن بافت های مجروح را تا زمان بهبودی انها به عهده دارند .
🔹این نخ های معمولا به منم سوزن برلی بخیه زدن بریدگی و یا برش های جراحی مورد استفاده قرار می گیرند و یا اینکه به عنوان شزیان بند (لگاتور) بدون استفاده از سوزن برای گره زدن انتهای رگ ها و یا مجرا های دیگر جهت جلوگیری از خونریزی و یا نشت مایعات دیگر مورد استفاده قرار می گیرند .
🔹نخ های بخیه جراحی ممکن است دارای پوششی از چربی-فلوئورو کربنها و سیلیکن ها باشند . این پوش ها برای کاهش خاصیت مویینه و بهبود خواص دیگر انجام می شود .
🔹نخ های چند فیلامنتی ممکن است به صورت صاف یا بافته شده (قیطان)مورد استفاده قرار بگیرد .نوع قیطانی از نظر کارکرد راحت تر بوده و گره پایدارتی دارد
🔹نخ های بخیه صاف در مقابل از نظر عبور از بافت راحت تر عمل کرده و همچنین راحت از بافت بیرون کشیده می شوند . این نوع نخ ٬کشش بافت با خود را ندارد
🔹اندازه نخ ها از ضخیم ترین آنها یعنی 7 وجود دارد تا نازکترین آنها که 11/0 است.هر چه نخ از 1 به بعد بر شماره اش افزوده شود ضخیم تر میشود و هر چه صفر به آن اضافه شود نازکتر می شود.بنابر این شماره 7 بزرگترین و شماره 11/0 کوچکترین نخ از نظر قطر است.

At a very young age, Dr. Leslie had aspirations to become a veterinarian. She actualized her dreams by receiving her bachelor’s degree in animal sciences, as well as her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine, from University of Illinois. She has always been an advocate for animal welfare, volunteering and working at a number of local animal shelters, emergency centers, and has practiced as a technician, kennel assistant, emergency radiology technician and a surgery technician before working at Carlson Animal Hospital.
Dr. Leslie even had the opportunity to travel to Africa to work for Vets-in-the-Wild (one of her most memorable and educational experiences) as well as assisting in spay/neuter and wellness clinics in Washington's Native American reservations through Rural Area Veterinary Services.
Pictured with Dr. Leslie is her dog Parker, a gentle soul who is afraid of lightning bugs, sprinklers, and fireworks.

“There’s light at the end of the tunnel”.⠀
I remember hearing those words during my training and thinking, this must be the longest tunnel ever, because I don’t see nothing! ⠀
Sometimes I wished time would speed up, so that med school and residency would go by faster, but guess what...it didn’t.⠀
Now that I’m practicing on my own, I’m grateful for that long tunnel- even though sometimes I felt like I was building it. #hardwork#grindmode

Rat Bait, Round-up and Anti-depressants.
Canine ingestion of theses substances has been the cause of three of my emergency appointments this week! I don't know whats got into the dogs, but they've all been getting into things that can be pretty toxic.
There are so many potential toxins in the home environment, it can be tricky to remember them all- especially when you travel and come across new location-dependant toxins reguarly.
The best way to deal with them is to find out what the active ingredient is ASAP, and have some resources at hand to work out how to handle the case- my favourite is the online Merck Vet Manual, the forums of VIN, and of course, your local poisons hotline.
This week, I learned that the herbicide 'round-up' is not toxic to mammals because it isn't metabolised. But Anti-depressants can cause CNS effects including serotonin sydrome at high doses, so cases require careful management.
As a vet, you'll never know what you'll see each day!
Have you had any interesting toxicity cases recently?
Because my life is in flux (always with the f*ing flux), an update and an introduction.
I'm a Canadian wildlife vet living in Malawi. This account is meant to take you on a transparent and evidence-based journey in conservation medicine. I'm passionate about science, health, social and environmental justice, biodiversity, mental health, conservation, and animal welfare. .
For the last two years, I was managing and developing a #onehealth field project for a wildlife trust in Malawi. Recently, I left that position and want to pursue a PhD in wildlife epidemiology. Epi is the study of how pathogens (disease-causing organisms) behave in populations, and across population-interfaces.
To do this I will need to win funding. So the next few months will be me reviewing literature, consulting with colleagues, writing a concept note, approaching a potential supervisor, and writing grants. Exciting right? I'll also be catching up with good friends 🖤 in some interesting and beautiful places and the #vetting never really stops; somehow there's always a case around the corner 🤦🏼♀️. ALSO, I was involved this year in an action-packed project with India's @wildlifesos , which I'll be able to share with you soon. I'm pretty excited for that.
So, there's my professional life in a nutshell.
Hey, my favourite nuts are macadamia and pine nuts. I'm a girl of expensive tastes 🤷🏼♀️. .

🛑🛑ESOPHAGEAL FOREIGN BODY🛑🛑
Just checking herself out #humble 🐶📱
💥This cutie was presented for regurgitation and weight loss. She ate a cooked bone which got stuck in her esophagus 🦴
💥Esophageal foreign bodies are more common in dogs than cats. Bones are the most common foreign body we find 🦴. However, other foreign bodies we come across include needles, fishhooks, wood, corn cobs, rawhide, and chew treats. .
💥Objects usually lodge in areas of the esophagus that are narrow and confined including; the thoracic inlet (where the esophagus enters the chest), over the heart base, or the lower (caudal) esophagus. Although, an object may also lodge in other locations. The tissue around the object then becomes swollen (edema) and muscle spasms make movement of the foreign body down the esophagus more difficult. Once lodged, the foreign object stimulates further muscle movement (to try and push the foreign body into the stomach, also known as peristalsis) and pressure damage/death (necrosis) of the esophageal wall occurs. If obstruction persists, erosion, ulceration, laceration or perforation of the esophagus can develop. The longer an esophageal foreign body is lodged, the greater the chance of severe esophageal damage. Severe damage can lead to complications that can be devastating and life threatening. .
💥Clinical signs: salivation, gagging, difficulty swallowing, regurgitation, and repeated attempts to swallow are signs of an esophageal foreign body. The signs depend on the location of the foreign body and how long the obstruction has been present. Patients can have a partial obstruction which may allow fluid but not food to pass. If the obstruction has been present for some time (chronically), clinical signs include inappetance, weight loss, and lethargy.
💥How do you think we diagnose esophageal foreign bodies? 🤔🤓
Always wanted to see one of these in the wild. This is a female saddle-billed stork in Zambia. I can tell she's a girl because she's got yellow eyes (males' eyes are brown). Other #funfacts about saddle-bills? They don't have a syrinx, which is the avian equivalent of a larynx ie 'vocal cords.' Chicks in the nest hiss, and the adults are mute. .
Dixon wanted to help with his clinical examination the other day 🐶❤️ Dixon, the Dalmatian had his final C5 vaccination (KC intranasal + C3) which protects against Parvovirus, Distemper, Hepatitis and Kennel Cough 😊
4 years later, still the same socially awkward kid. But at least I’ve made some friends along the way, and some of them decided to stay. Honestly so thankful to my family and friends, they’ve somehow managed to put up with me and kept me sane... And I guess having a different prefix to my name is sort of exciting as well? It’s been a hell of a ride and I’m looking forward to this next chapter in life. .
بیماری تب دره ریفت Rift Valley Fever (RVF) بیماری تب دره ریفت یا بیماری آنزئوتیک، یک بیماری تب دار حاد ویروسی مشترک بین انسان و دام می باشد که یکی از علل مهم سقط جنین گوسفند، بز و گاو است. ویروس عامل بیماری عضو خانواده بونیاویریده و جنس فلبوویروس ها است که اغلب به وسیله ی پشه ها منتقل شده و مخزن ویروس در مهره داران شناخته نشده است، اما به نظر می رسد نشخوارکنندگان اهلی و وحشی مخزن آن باشند. علاوه بر این، انتقال ویروس از طریق پشه های آئدس در آب های راکد نیز صورت می گیرد. الگوی این بیماری به صورت وقوع همه گیری همراه علائم بالینی است و یک دوره ی خاموشی بین وقوع همه گیری ها رخ می دهد. دام های بومی معمولاً علائم بالینی را نشان نمی دهند. در این بیماری در حیوانات آبستن، سقط و در غیر آبستن ها علائم خفیف بالینی مشاهده می شود. شدت جراحت ها بستگی به سن آبستنی در زمان آلوده شدن دارد. خسارات ناشی از این بیماری شامل مرگ گوساله های جوان، سقط جنین و در برخی موارد مرگ گاوهای بالغ می باشد.

전이도 적출술 및 외측 고실 절골술은 대표적으로 외이염을 동반하는 중이(middle ear) 질환에서 실시되는 수술법으로 정확한 접근법 및 조직 절제법이 요구되며 이 과정이 정확하게 수행되지 않을 경우 안면신경 마비, 전정기계 이상, 그리고 만성적인 누공 및 농양과 같은 부작용을 유발할 수 있습니다. "이 수술의 목표는 가능한한 염증이 있는 외의 상당부분을 제거하고, 수직이도와 수평이도 전부제거, 고실과 수직이도가 연결된 상피 전부 제거, 마지막으로 고실의 일부를 제거하는 것 입니다." - 강의 내용 중
Infección retrobulbar en Trachemys scripta elegans.
Así es como tratamos una infección retrobulbar recurrente en una tortuga. Una herida perforada en la ramphoteca resultó en una infección retrobulbar (¡raro!). Anteriormente otro colega mantuvo a la tortuga bajo antibióticos durante varias semanas sin mejoras.
Lo que hice fue:
- Anestesiar a nuestro amigo
- Desbridar el área necrótica
- Encuentre la herida perforada en la ramphoteca y coloque un catéter 25G en ella
- Se uso ese catéter como guía para un catéter más grande, 22G, que se colocó desde afuera hacia la cavidad oral
- Suturar el catéter.
El catéter se mantuvo en su lugar durante 4 días. De esta manera, evitamos que el área se cerrara sin control, y una semana después de la cirugía inicial ya tuvimos una buena curación.
🛑IMMUNE-MEDIATED THROMBOCYTOPENIA (IMTP) TREATMENT🛑
Put your sunglasses on for this photo, my pasty skin is as bright as the sun's reflection 😎
💥Any concurrent disease must be identified and treated appropriately, if possible. Treatment for IMTP includes but is not limitied to:
💥Fluid therapy: patients who are clinically dehydrated or who are not eating/drinking may require fluid therapy. .
💥Immunosuppressive Therapy: immunosuppressive therapy is the most important aspect in IMT therapy, with corticosteroids being the most common initial therapy (e.g. prednisone). Vincristine is another immunosuppressive which may be used in combination with corticosteroids. There are several other immunosuppressive drugs that may be used. .
💥Transfusions: anemic patients may require a blood transfusion. Anemia can arise from hemorrhage secondary to severe thrombocytopenia (low platelets) or from concurrent diseases (e.g. IMHA). .
💥Gastro-protectants are used in some patients, especially those with GI bleeding or other abnormalities, such as reduced GI blood flow (ischemia) or ulceration. .
💥Patients with severe reduction in platelets are at increased risk of hemorrhage. Strict cage rest may help to avoid traumatic hemorrhage. .
💥Platelet counts are monitored daily until platelets are greater then 50,000/µL. Weekly monitoring is then done until the platelet count normalizes. Once the platelet count normalizes, immunosuppressive therapy can be gradually tapered over 4-6 months.
💥Prognosis is generally good if IMTP is treated quickly and appropriately. Death from IMTP is usually due to hemorrhage, most often from the GI tract or into the nervous system. This disease can reoccur and some patients may need long term maintenance therapy.
11 79010 December, 2019
I was born in Philadelphia and wasn’t exposed to animals aside from my childhood cat. We didn’t have much in the way of money to afford veterinary care but we did provide the best home we could. My father instilled an unspoken love of animals in me. He taught me to treat every living creature with kindness. I knew early on that I wanted to care of animals for the rest of my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I started riding horses at a young age and instantly fell in love. I was determined to create a career in the equine industry and began my college career as an equine science major. Within the first year, my mind had been changed after being treated poorly while working as a stablehand. I changed my major to biology. I struggled with grades and gave up on veterinary school because I felt I wasn’t good enough. Third and fourth year kindled a love for science and I excelled in my advanced courses, but my dream of being a veterinarian fell to the wayside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To make extra cash I worked as a receptionist at a local vet hospital. There the veterinarians also had negative views of the profession and further pushed me away from the dream. I graduated without a plan. I applied to various science programs, yet I wasn’t happy with any of those choices. I continued to be uncertain and confused about what the future held for me. Yet, all the while, I continued to work in veterinary hospitals where I felt the most at home. I finally decided to apply to vet school two years after graduating from college. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I didn’t have the best grades. I didn’t have a research background. I wasn’t the smartest student. But, I had a diverse background, drive, and excellent communication skills. I applied to five schools, was denied interviews at three of them, and got accepted into two of them. Choosing between veterinary schools was an anxiety ridden decision but ultimately I picked a school that was closer to family, treated me well, and was more affordable. That’s how I ended up in Canada 🇨🇦 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀****continued in comments***
Via @jungle_doctor -
This case completely blew me away today! A Monarch butterfly was found badly injured with the most part of two of its wings missing, most likely from a bird attack. Amazingly, someone collected the insect and took it into the @twrcwildlifecenter where a dedicated member of staff took it home to attempt a wound repair. With a bit of creativity and innovation, the wings were reconstructed by cementing on some advertising card and some extra monarch wings (is it just me, or is this an amazing thing to just have lying around!?) and after assessing that the animal could fly, it was placed outside in a sunny spot to warm up. These insects can’t fly in temperatures below 13 degrees Celsius (55F), but it must have already been warm enough because before she could get her camera, it fluttered away before her eyes!
What an amazing job, and it just goes to show that from elephants to butterflies, no patient is too big or small in the veterinary world! It also has to take the cake for the most unusual animal I’ve seen operated (“operated”?) on! What about you!?
Sorry for the delay! I've had a HECTIC night at work, luckily I had this prepared 😁 Diagnosis of anaphylaxis is mainly based off history, especially if there is exposure to a trigger as well as the patients physical examination. Diagnositics performed may include:
🐝 Blood pressure monitoring to asses for changes e.g. hypotension (reduced blood pressure)
🐝 ECG to assessment for arrythmias or heart rate changes (e.g. tachycardia) .
🐝 Blood work is recommended especially in patients with severe anaphylaxis. Potential changes include elevations in liver enzymes, elevated kidney enzymes and bleeding disorders (coagulopathy). .
🐝 Thoracic radiographs are non-specific. In animals with respiratory difficulty, there may be changes to their lung tissue. .
🐝 Ultrasound of the abdomen can be used to evaluate the gallbladder in dogs. We look for a phenomenon called a "Halo effect" within the gallbladder. One article suggests that gallbladder wall edema ("Halo" effect) may be over 90% specific for anaphylaxis secondary to hepatic (liver) venous congestion (Quantz et al, 2009).
🐝 How do you think we treat anaphylaxsis?? .
