Most eye opening thing in interviews?
Someone asked what surprised me most about job interviews.
My answer: Clinical skills were generally not as important to them as I expected them to be👩🏻⚕️
Clinics were generally more interested in:
▫️ Rapport with the team
▫️ Rapport with clients
▫️ Communication skills
This is definitely not to say that the surgery and procedural skills aren’t important. I do have them! But for the clinics that I was looking it, they were not AS concerned about my clinical skills as I was.
Im sure there are other practices that care mainly about clinical skills, so it probably depends a lot where you apply.
When your school emphasizes your soft skills, and gives you opportunity to practice, embrace it! I took AVM (Art of Veterinary Medicine) seriously in vet school, and it has paid off in spades ♠️
Клещи вида Demodex canis обитают в основном на домашних собаках, но иногда поражают и людей. Хотя большинство инфестаций комменсальны и потому бессимптомны , они могут и привести к состоянию демодекоза.
Эти клещи обитают достаточно глубоко в дерме, и передача обычно возможна только при длительном прямом контакте, например, от суки к щенку при кормлении молоком. Соответственно, на начальной стадии наиболее обыкновенные места поражения демодекозом — морды, передние лапы, области глазных орбит.
The natural host of Demodex canis is the domestic dog. Although it can temporarily infect humans, D. canis mites cannot survive on the human skin and therefore will die shortly after exposure and are considered not to be zoonotic.
Demodicosis can manifest as lesions of two types: squamous, which causes dry alopecia and thickening of the skin, and pustular, which is the more severe form, causing secondary infection (usually by Staphylococcus), resulting in the characteristic numerous red pustules and wrinkling of the skin. Demodicosis can follow immunosuppressive conditions or treatments, or may be related to a genetic immune deficiency.
, we all have some to share! Why not put it to good use and make out of it?! Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSC's) produce roughly a hundred fold more stem cells than bone marrow- derived hematopoietic stem cells (HSC's) in any given volume.
Now, we do not know how many cells is the "magic number", but what we do know is generally 3-4x concentration into any injected area will yield the best results.
Both bone marrow and adipose- derived stem cell collection will adequately get your patients up to the cell concentration they need to appropriately treat any approved, research and founded. 📸 Credit: @veterinarytechnicians ➖➖➖➖➖➖
التهاب البريتون المعدي السنوري أو التهاب الصفاق المعدي السنوري (FIP) هو مرض عضال مميت يصيب القطط. وهو ناتج عن فيروس الصفاق المعدي السنوري (FIPV)، وهو تغير لفيروس كورونا المعوي السنوري. لم يتفق الخبراء على التفاصيل الدقيقة للتغيرات الوراثية التي تنتج في فيروس التهاب الصفاق المعدي السنوري. يستطيع الفيروس المتغير غزو بعض خلايا الدم البيضاء والنمو فيها، وتسمى الخلايا الأكولة الكبيرة. تؤدي استجابة النظام المناعي إلى تفاعل التهابي في الأنسجة التي تحتويه. يعد هذا المرض عادة من الأمراض القاتلة. حيث إن معدل الإصابة به تقريبًا 1 من 5000 من الأسر ومع واحد أو اثنين من القطط. ويتوفر لقاح لالتهاب الصفاق المعدي السنوري ولكن المثير للجدل هو أنه لم تُثبت فعاليته. يجري ساس وساس تصنيع تركيب منبه المناعة التجريبية واختبارها من قبل د. الليجاندر والذي ذكر أن ثلاث قطط مصابة بهذا الفيروس بقيت على قيد الحياة فوق السنة وتم علاجها بالأدوية. وفي دراسة حالة واحدة، قد نجت قطة مصابة بالتهاب الصفاق المعدي السنوري الجاف حيث بقيت على قيد الحياة لمدة 26 شهرًا من تاريخ التشخيص الأخير.
فيروس كورونا المعوي السنوري شائعاً جداً، لا سيما في الأماكن التي يتجمع فيها مجموعات كبيرة من القطط (مأوى الحيوانات إلخ.). حيث تصاب القطط بهذا الفيروس عن طريق الاستنشاق أو الأكل.و يعد البراز من مصادر انتقال هذا الفيروس الأكثر شيوعاً، على الرغم من أن تلوث الأسطح مثل أطباق الطعام والملابس يمكن ينقل هذا الفيروس أيضاً. وعلى الرغم من شيوع فيروس كورونا المعوي السنوري ، إلى أن القطط لا تصاب بالتهاب الصفاق المعدي السنوري (FIP). في كثير من الأحيان، إن الإصابة بفيروس كورونا المعوي السنوري (FECV) لا ينتج أي علامات سريرية، ولكن قد يسبب إسهال خفيف. ولذلك، فإن القط الذي لا تظهر فيه علامات سريرية قد يكون حامل لهذا الفيروس وينقله لقط آخر. وعند إصابة أي قط بفيروس كورونا المعوي السنوري، فإنه من الممكن أن تزداد فرصة تحول هذا الفيروس إلى إلتهاب الصفاق المعدي السنوري(FIP). وقد تزداد هذه الفرصة عند القطط التي تعاني من ضعف المناعة وتتضمن القطط الصغيرة جداً والكبيرة في السن. ويُعتقد أن هناك عامل وراثي للإصابة بعدوى فيروسية.

It’s a tough decision but someone’s gotta do it 😂 •
This is Jinx, she is 5 months old. She suffers from conjunctivitis and ulcers caused by the herpes virus. She can barely see so her sister, Jet, is her seeing eye friend. She loves sitting on your shoulders! She is getting acupuncture to try and help with her eye issues. If you look closely you can see the needles around her face. Uhh they are the best cats 😻

What is a working interview?
It’s when you get to live a day in the life of your new potential job. Your potential employer sees where you’re at, and you get to see how the practice handles a new grad. More importantly, you get to decide if the clinic feels like a good fit.
You might do consults 🌡
You might do surgeries 💉
You might work with technicians 💊
You might be a fly on the wall 🤷🏻♀️
Working interviews allowed me to decide, with confidence, which jobs would be a better fit for me. I would definitely not consider a position without doing one. In fact, I would recommend you insist on one! 👩🏻⚕️
“But what if I make a mistake, or I’m nervous and don’t do well with an appointment. Then I won’t get the job!” 😖
Sure, working interviews are scarier. But, they’re either going to be reasonable and understand, or they’re going to get upset. Either way, you have gained valuable information about the practice that should factor into your decision! It’s all good experience 👍🏻
I was terrified for working interviews beforehand, but I genuinely can’t imagine how I’d have known what clinic to choose, had I not done them!
Embrace it ☺️

Our patients come in all shapes and sizes. They also live in many different kinds of environments. Our vet tech students and pre-vet students need to be prepared to help and treat all of their patients regardless of the conditions. Pictured here are some students doing work with an endangered sea turtle in Costa Rica. (Almost all species of sea turtles are classified as endangered) We love that our students have the passion and knowledge to do this kind of work.
Raise your hand 🤚🏻 if you sang along as you read this.
I keep getting one step closer to my goal everyday. It’s so exciting to have found something that I’m so passionate about and something that brings me much joy. Its a hard journey with many ups/downs (especially dealing with anxiety) but the people around me never gave up on me which made it way easier to keep going and its only going to get harder but so far it’s been worth all the struggles and hours/days of studying. I’ve wanted to work in the veterinary field since I was in elementary school and It’s still something I’m going to pursue. #vettechstudent 🐶🐱
So I'm super new at this but I thought it was pretty cool. *insert a you're crazy comment here for liking cells* haha. Anyways, pic 1 has a lot of neutrophils. (My favorite to look at) pic 2 is blood cells. Pic 3 has a sperm surprise!!! Ahh know where we got out sample now? Yes a testicle. 😂
Can't wait to get to my clinical pathology class!
Oh the fun we have at work. 🔬
I haven’t posted to IG since literally May but now it seems right.
In light of the destructive nature of the #Campfire tearing its way through Northern California, my amazing group of classmates from the #YCVTP decided our time would be better spent volunteering at the Yuba-Sutter fairgrounds instead of our regularly scheduled class.
It was an amazing opportunity to offer at least a little bit of solace to those who have been directly impacted by the wildfire. #donateyourtime#paradise#californiastrong#vettech#vettechstudent#volunteer
Got my Biology final mark today FINALLY!!! Overall mark of 91% 😁😁😁
I am so impressed with my mark! It wasn't that long ago that I felt that I would have to leave the program!I am sooo glad I didn't give up and give in. ♡
Only 2 left between me and Christmas vacation time! ♡
Can we talk about perfectionism for a minute?
Perfectionism has CRIPPLED me and silenced my gifts for years. It is a shackle, a weight that keeps me from taking action, sharing my story, and teaching others what I have learned during this huge growth phase in my life.
It is currently causing me extreme stress, worry, and anxiety leading up to my very first webinar tonight. I literally just got done crying over the keyboard I’m using to write this message.
It doesn’t have to be this way, though. Because of all the things I’ve learned over the past 2 years, I know that I have the power to let go of this gift killer, perfectionism.
The quality of my work does NOT determine my self-worth.
SO WHAT if no one shows up to the call? SO WHAT if people give me negative feedback? SO WHAT if I mess up or have a technology blunder? SO WHAT if no one resonates with my teaching?
SO FUCKING WHAT?
I’m a human. I am not perfect. I am going to mess up. I am going to experience negative emotions during my lifetime.
And you know what else? This work is important to me because it has RADICALLY changed my life. I am a better veterinarian, a better partner, a better coworker, a better caregiver, a better friend, and a better leader. So I will continue to show up, experience negative feelings, and take action anyway.
Veterinary professionals: Show up with me tonight at 7:30pm EST and I’ll teach you how to start your own personal revolution, for FREE. Link to more info in bio!

Love & Light
At this time of the year, veterinary students worldwide are preparing for and sitting exams. Vet students go through years of intense study, nights of no-sleep, compromising their social life, and garnering upwards of hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt while chasing their dreams of caring for animals.
You don’t pursue a career in veterinary medicine for the money; all of the diagnostic tests, surgeries, and medications your veterinarian suggests are for the health and well-being of your animal companion.
In fact, veterinary medicine has the highest debt to-income-ratio among the various health professions. In addition, many vets are leaving the profession as a result of the stress, abuse, and emotional strain of the job.
Next time you come across a vet student, our veterinarian, I implore you to please show compassion because all of this studying is not easy.
‘Tis the season to be grateful! 🍃👏🌻 This time of year has us thinking about the meaning of “community.” From your local hospital team to your larger networks, how do you foster and express gratitude for the people you surround yourself with each day? #BeWellAtBanfield
