Heel bulb lacerations......seem to be recipe of the month. One of my least favourite spots to suture as they often break down (albeit with healing beneath the flap; skin is a great natural bandage) despite thick immobilising bandages or casts. Here is one after a week; no lameness or infection, sutures holding thus far but we will see if they last the distance! Always seem to be a more exudative wound, and hard to keep clean and dry even with a massive bandage and box rest #equinevet#horsevet#vetmed#vet#laceration#horsewound#wound#suture#woundcare
ATENÇAO! IMAGENS FORTES!
Na primeira foto temos a parte distal da "pata" traseira de um felino que caiu (com uma pequena ajuda) devido à uma severa lesão causada por miíase ("bicheira"), o animal também apresentava sinais clínicos de calicivirose, não era castrado e era EXTREMAMENTE agressivo.
Na segunda observamos o estado em que estava a pata dele quando o encontrei, alem disso também apresentava miíase anal, severa desidratação e desnutrição.
Foi feita tricotomia da região da lesão, lavagem com soro, secagem com algodão, administração de capstar, antiflamatorio, antibiótico, analgésico e alimentação com AD na seringa. Infelizmente depois de 6horas arduas o animal nao resistiu, provavelmente por sepse, hipovolemia ou ambas.
COMO PODEMOS EVITAR?
*Não dar acesso à rua para os seus animais
*Castrar seus animais
*Apoiar e conscientizar as pessoas sobre a castração
*Adotar e estimular a cultura da adoção
*Não abandonar os animais
*Valorizar a profissão do Médico veterinário para que ele possa cada vez mais cuidar melhor dos animais, humanos e natureza
*Avisar um órgão competente quando avistar um animal debilitado
*Usar de forma racional inceticidas para nao matar os predadores das moscas que fazem posturas das larvas.

It was pretty rough on my overnight shift last night. I had so much to do with hardly any time. At one point while my feet were throbbing because I'm the only tech on and haven't sat down yet; my back is aching from the X-rays, and odd lifting, twisting and turning; head pounding from lack of sleep and coffee; irritable from the constant pumps beeping, phones ringing, the off-balance washing machine, the smells, and the dogs barking. So I took a deep breath and reminded myself why I put up with it all. This patient needed her temperature taken every hour. It felt like a minute had passed by the time her next temperature check was due, so I stopped what I was doing and collected my things and went to her kennel for the umpteenth time. I was irritated because all I could think about was what I had to do next and what still needed to be done (the place was a disaster!). This patient has been pretty depressed since we diagnosed her with pancreatitis, but still wagged her tail when you'd approach her. This time, she lifted her head when I opened the door, and wagged her tail with triumph. She didn't know what was happening to her, or who I was. Her body ached worse than mine, the sounds and smells unfamiliar, and hasn't eaten in a day. I felt so selfish for feeling down when she was at her lowest. In that moment, she released me from the stresses around me. Seeing her progressing, showing signs of improvement, and being strong when you're at your weakest point. Animals can teach you so much. Sometimes it takes me a minute to see what it is, but it's there. Just when I feel completely burnt out, my day becomes rejuvenated. I'm honored to work with animals, they're the best
Brand new momma cat cleaning her third and final kitten. It was a breach delivery and I had to extract the little one once the tail and feet were exposed. All kittens and momma are doing well today.
