Sorry for the wait!

WOW, has it ever been a busy summer, and I do not have Internet in the place I am staying in for the summer and although I told myself I could use the Internet at work over my lunch hour, I never seem to get a lunch hour!
I am back in Alberta now and living out by fernvalleys place while working at the local mixed animal veterinary practice. The practice I work at handles everything from horses and cattle (beef and dairy) to pot belly pigs, cats, dogs, ferrets, budgies, goats, llamas, alpacas and so on... It has been a fabulous experience so far, I even got to do my first surgery last week, a cat neuter, but I can't complain! I am currently pulling the graveyard shift on monitoring a group of critical care patients in the clinic that include a scouring calf, a dog with liver disease, a dog that came in at midnight with a huge bite wound, as well as another dog fight wound victim. Liver dog enjoys pulling his IV out every half hour or so and needs constant monitoring. I swear that's one of the hardest things about vet med, your patients don't always realize that what you are trying to do is actually helping!
I have been really enjoying getting to see my horses every day after work, though some days I don't get off work till late and then am too tired to do anything more than pet noses. I have tons of photos but Don't have them here at the clinic unfortunately.
I will try to update again soon!

Yay for cat neutering!

Sounds like you're in the perfect practice for practice.
I mean...

Well, you know what I mean.

What a challenging job, and how great you are to be doing it.

Animals need people like you.

I'd reccommend sleeping, over blogging, just because you need to be well-rested for next years work:)

But don't stop blogging! How else will I get my virtual vet reading?

Now that's a mixed message;)

all the best, and kudos to you, and that amazing auntie FV.
and that amazing mom, grey mare.
