Notes to every equine vet tech…..
Not all barn cats will like you, even if they ‘seem’ interested.
Always check the truck for barn cats, Jack Russell terrorists and goat kids before leaving a farm.
Day shift means that you’ll never see a normal foaling.
If you work day shift all you want to see is a normal foaling.
Mares are incapable of respecting a sterile field if you’re working on their foal.
If the field companion is a donkey it’ll either want to sit in your lap or ruin your day – there’s no in between.
Never underestimate the black belt ninja skills of a sick foal.
Every single foal, weanling and yearling is capable of removing their own catheter in 0.001 seconds.
If your vet says “we’re all done here” wait for a second…..there is almost always an afterthought.
Apparently IV fluid lines taste great….is there a no-chew option like puppy vet-wrap??
