Adventures in Vet Techin'

6 notes

Dr. Bob and the farmers found some wild-growing oranges and convinced us to try them. But they were sour oranges! Very sour. Mean trick! Mean, mean trick! LOL I managed to choke mine down, but most of us spit them out instantly. We had a sneaking suspicion they were up to something beforehand, though. Just look at that grin! lol

They then told us that instead of eating them straight, they take the juice and mix it with a crap ton of sugar to make a tasty drink.

"It is with deep sadness and heartfelt sorrow that we announce the passing of Dr Sophia Yin. As a beloved colleague in the field of animal behavior and veterinary medicine, she enriched many lives and improved the relationship amongst pets and their owners/guardians. She was a visionary, an internationally renowned author and lecturer, and made the world around her a better place to live. She is, and will continue to be, sorely missed.
At this time the family and staff has requested privacy as they struggle to handle this sudden and unexpected loss.”

I am so shocked… I did not expect this. :(She is such a big loss for animals, their owners and people working in the veterinary and animal behaviour worlds.She will be missed, but all the work she has done to improve animal welfare will not be in vain. She is an inspiration for many and we will keep sharing her knowledge through her books, videos and recordings..I hope she rests in peace.

This is so sudden… This is just such a huge loss. She was always such an inspiration to me and the first person I’d go to and recommend people to for animal training and stress-free handling. Her work really was nothing short of revolutionary.
Rest in peace


I was supposed to see her at a conference in a few weeks… Jeez…The veterinary world has lost one of its brightest lights.

May the angel watch over her.. :( we lost a good teacher ..

1-2) The other mama was much more docile. In addition to the dewormer, we also gave everyone a vitamin injection.

3) Sarah, a vet student, holding the syringes as she prepares to give her first large animal injections.

4) Sarah giving the dewormer.

5) After the first injection, the cow started kicking and thrashing around in the chute and Sarah wasn’t sure how to best give the shot safely, so she tapped out and let Dr. Seanna give her some pointers.

We also had to deworm the mamas, and they did NOT appreciate it. Even in the headgate the one with the bad udder put up such a struggle that we couldn’t give her the injection safely, so we had to use the nose tongs to get her to stay still. She was so mad! Poor girl; I wish we could explain that it’s all for her own good!
