Copernicus

I didn't really need a little white rat named Copernicus, but i guess that's just the way it's going to work out.
He's sick, so i've got a week or two of antibiotics to deal with, but it shouldn't be a big deal.

I wasn't about to let his trailer-trash owner put him to sleep just because he sneezed a few times. It seemed to be a more of a "i didn't really want this rat and now i don't want to deal with him" situation.

Anyone want a little white rat?




Other than that, the theme of the night was "seizures". There was also a surgery wherein the dog's intestines had to be untangled from his heart. He did really well for having been in such a condition.

We'd take it if we had room.

Sorry but I am sure that "rat + four cats (two of them "hunters") = uncomfortable stressful life for lil white rat"

a dog whose instestines that had to be untangled from his heart? :O I didn't even know that could happen! **crosses fingers he does good**

Re: rat?
Wait till Tuesday. I normally just have Kim till eight, but Kim decided to cover Danielle's 6-4 shift that day. Basically, I'm alone my entire ten hours. I can call Ofelia upstairs if I need her, and Jaime might be willing to come over after her shift at IM is done...but it's going to suck.

I briefly considered taking it and renaming it Algernon, but I don't that'd work.

I had a cat sieze on me tonight :( We're not 24 hours, but pop in on Sundays to medicate and feed and such, and a few minutes after force feeding our one hospitalised kitty, she had a siezure on me :( We're most likely putting her down tomorrow (severe severe end stage kidney disease) since the owner knows there's not much of a chance of her recovering.

kitty seizures always mean something bad. that sucks.

Situations like that are why i take issue with hospitals leaving pets unattended, though. The kitty could seizure all night, and who would know?

Yeah, it was severe end stage kidney disease where pretty much nothing could be done, her bloodwork numbers were just off the charts. We euthanised her this morning after her owners came and said goodbye. It would be great if we could have some sort of 24hour care, but it's just not realistic at my clinic. We have 1 doctor, and 3 of us assistants, and that's it. Not even a tech.
