It’s funny how few things bring vet students more pleasure than poking a needle into an animal. Doesn’t matter what the procedure is for: IM injection, awesome! IV catheter, bring it on! Jug draw, do I get to use a vacutainer?- Even better.
Something is terribly pleasing, and instantly gratifying about sticking a needle in an animal. (Maybe its because we get instant results?)
Today I went out to help draw blood samples at a local goat dairy to test for CL (caseous lymphadenitis) and CAE (caprine arthritis encephalitis). Even though I didn’t get any studying done this evening, I feel accomplished because, all those goats I know are going to be successfully tested.
Now if only I can successfully pass my midterm on Friday…
