Veterinary Technician Stories - Sharing what we do
some days i come in and see a cage being cleaned out, one that, the day before, housed a parvo puppy who wasn't doing well, and i know what happened, and am sad.|
a week or two ago we had two parvo puppies, as those of you at BAC know, and the one who had been there longest dies. s/he was so cute and sad, and it made me very sad. but the other one, the white one, just a few days later, was sitting up and no longer had an IV. s/he was doing much better! s/he's such a sweet puppy and is going to make someone a wonderful companion. i'd take her home myself if i could.
recently we also had a 3 week old kitten found 0 umbilical still attached, eyes closed, ears closed... now his eyes and ears are open, we've kept him fed and he's getting nice and kitten-y plump. he's been named pipsqueak. he could have died alone under a bush if he hadn't been found by accident. now pipsqueak has a whole clinic in love with him and will also make someone a wonderful companion.
it's those white puppy and pipsqueak times that make those sad times more bearable and give me the warm fuzzies...
