Long days... and loving it.

After nearly three weeks at my new full-time position, I continue to look forward to going in to work, to working long days, to a fantastic, talented, and industrious group of employees, to a friendly and down-to-earth clientele, to a plethora of challenging cases, to learning, to sharing my knowledge, and to invest in this position.

Though my hours are long, my schedule allows for plenty of days off during the week, allowing me to enjoy all of my personal activities.

Malassezia (yeast) infections: something extremely common in cats and dogs, especially during allergy season. These little buggers can cause nasty ear infections, and if you look for them properly, can be found anywhere on the skin.
Incidentally, our microscope in the clinic is suberb, but not an electron microscope (as what has taken this image).

Oh, that's great, Doc!

Oh, question, is it true laser technology is being used to de-claw cats?
My work-neighbour had it done to her psycho tabby female. It was either that, or put her down, I gather.

Yes, it's true, and it's fantastic for this specific surgery. Anyone who says it's an atrocious surgery need look no further than a post-op laser declaw cat. With good analgesia, these kitties are walking and purring within hours.

Oh, that's great news!

I had it done to my Simon, years ago, swore I would never do it to any animal ever again.

Good to hear that!

That's a HUGE difference to the hell they went through before.
Of course, it depended on the skill of the surgeon, but post-op was always awful..

I have a "laser-engraving" machine at my shop.

The technology is amazing!
