This day was so cool and SO MUCH FUN!!! When I started my first position at the reception area, I really enjoyed interacting with the people who were bringing in their pets. I thought that I was going to be sort of shy and nervous but I ended up being really friendly and relaxed…I even used my minimal Spanish-speaking skills a bit to talk to some children. It became a bit more hectic when I moved to the check-up station, but in a fun way. I really liked figuring out the correct dosage for the vitamins and dewormer based on the dogs’ sizes and weights. I really felt the responsibility of it and I enjoyed knowing that I really needed to be cautious and thoughtful about my decisions. I also enjoyed injecting the dogs because most of them were way more relaxed than I had expected. When it was my turn to suture, I was honestly nervous but ended up moving quickly and smoothly. I was worried because the dog that I did surgery on(her name was Sofia!) had visible parametria – when Dr. T removed her fallopian tubes, parts of it were black and solidified to the point where it was breaking apart. I just really hope that we helped her by spaying her. She also was taking a very long time to wake up after surgery and her gums were extremely pale with no capillary refill. She, unfortunately, had to be carried home by her owner and I am just really worried that she did not wake up. This experience with Sofia the dog and the clinic overall really humbled me and showed me how much we, as veterinarians and aspiring veterinarians, can help both animals and people if we try our best to be as thoughtful and accurate as possible with our choices.
