A Day in the life of a Veterinarian

A day in a vets lifeWhen asking myself what a normal day is like, I began to realize that there is no normal. No day is quite the same as the next. They definitely all start out the same with an alarm clock, breakfast and a drive to work but no two days are identical.

Generally in the morning we are involved with admitting patients that will be undergoing procedures later that day and, if time allows, sneaking in a cup of coffee. Between the admissions I also need to see to the in-hospital patients, assessing how they have done

overnight and deciding on a plan of action for them for the forthcoming day. The rest of the morning is then taken up either in theatre operating on animals or in the consulting rooms seeing patients coming in for check-ups and treatment. Operations include the routine ones like spays and castrations but sometimes more intense procedures are needed.

Unfortunately with animals anything goes. From removing the socks that Fluffy ate to stitching up Bruno after his altercation with the other pit bull, the list of possibilities is endless.

In the consulting room is where most of my days are spent, be it vaccinating, treating or sadly sometimes saying good-bye to some of the dearly loved pets I call my patients. Although this is the hardest part of my day, there are also so many moments that bring joy to my day. Litters of puppies being brought in a massive box for their first ever visit and vaccination, notes of appreciation from clients and best of all the sense of accomplishment when the magical bond between a human and pet is restored.
As I lay on my bed at the end of a day filled with problem solving, from the long-term ills to the life threatening emergencies, my brain starts to shut down but not before wondering if it will be my alarm clock or a “call out” that will end my slumber.
