More Skills Passed :)

Yesterday in Intro To Vet Tech, we tested on our feline and canine restraints.  I had practiced both before, but hadn't done any restraints on large dogs, because they practiced them last week when I was gone.  So here I am, going into take my test without ever having restrained a large dog.

Well, I walked in there like I owned the place, and aced every single restraint...feline and canine :)

This morning, I did my first shift of Animal Care Duty.  Each student has to do ACD 4 times during the semester.    The times are 7:30-8:30a or 4:30-5:30p. Well, I waited until the last minute to sign up, so I get the morning shift. It wasn't too bad.  I cleaned one dog kennel, and took three dogs out to walk them and then assisted in restraining for TPR (temperature, pulse, respiration).  I also helped restrain for two cats medications (an eye ointment and a liquid medication).  It was really neat to be able to help out, and even cooler to know that I will be the one administering medications later on :):)

I guess that's all the excitement for now.  I just have my Med Term class and then I'll be done for the weekend.
