apparently, you can name a bird if you adopt it. [x]
What happened to it?! Or is it a dissection, because if it is im gunna feel pretty stupid…
No it’s a live dog. She had a large mass on her maxilla (upper jaw), so we removed a section of it. She did wonderfully during the surgery, and she woke up well :)
Can I just take the time to tell y’all a tale? Of the most useless, awful student in my class.
There are a few people I’m not fond of in my class because they’re not very competent. But there’s one who just takes the cake because incompetence doesn’t even begin to cover it. This person is lazy, selfish, and walks around like they’re God’s gift to veterinary medicine.
I already didn’t like this person before this rotation because I know they are homophobic, and I knew that they were lazy and whatnot. But these past two weeks have been very hard because I am in a very time-intensive and patient-intensive rotation right now. This person took the fewest number of cases, picked cases that were the easiest/patients would stay for the shortest period of time. They signed up to be on call less than every other person on the rotation, and they didn’t sign up for any Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays. They haven’t offered to help any of us on the nights or weekends with our own patients. And I just found out yesterday that this person doesn’t come to do night time treatments at 8 PM as assigned, and does those treatments whenever they leave which is usually around 4-5 PM. That means the dog gets medications at the wrong time, and doesn’t get to come out of its cage to even go to the bathroom between 4 PM and 7 AM.
Today was our last week day for the rotation. This person slept through the 4 hour surgery I was in when it was displayed on the TV in the rounds room. They didn’t offer to take the emergency surgery that popped up while I was with mine even though they were the only person without a patient in the hospital. And they left without asking if any of us needed help with our patients yet again.
I’ve been extremely vocal about my dislike for this person to all rotation mates and one of the doctors because I can’t take it. It is too late in the year for people to be getting away with shit like this, and every single person agrees with me. Luckily this person didn’t pass their national boards. I rarely wish ill of anyone, but, for the sake of other animals, I hope they never pass until they get an attitude adjustment.
I’m about to help take a quarter of a dog’s face off.
Hope this goes well.
Laika’s white blood cell count is so low that she’d be lucky not to die if she got an infection.
At least she is happy and clinically normal.
Her disease is so complex. I am not ready to be her vet in 3 weeks.
Omgggg there’s a baby gibbon here I’m gonna die.
