The struggle in Vet Medicine

Veterinary medicine has its own set of struggles just like any other profession.  I think the thing that makes our profession so different is the aspect of life or death.  Yes, they are just pets, but these pets are peoples’ family members.  My ability to diagnose and make proper decisions about a diagnosis may be the […]

Skiing + dental health for pets

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is ready to start the work week off right! I’m not gonna lie, I failed to get my long run in this weekend.  We were slammed at work and I barely made it home by 8pm.  I didn’t sleep well because I worry too much about all the things that could […]

Getting back to basics, training plans, and cuddles

Sunday Funday! Not really, I’m at work today but it started off pretty slow so me and the dogs had some quality cuddle time together. We had an interesting case in the clinic today that will remind you to always think about the basics.  It was a routine exam and vaccines.  The dog is a […]

Canvas and cocktails, injuries, and rest

Happy Saturday!! The husband has some buddies in town this weekend, so I decided to join some work friends for canvas and cocktails! Before: Finished product: I am by no means an artist,  but it’s fun and that’s all that really matters. Afterwards I stopped for a little sweet tooth craving I love frozen yogurt. […]

Snowy trails, salomon shoes, and bad dogs

Yesterday, I woke up to this- not a true snow fall, but enough to cover the ground and trees. You know your house is cold when your dog naps on the heater vents. Jett and I constantly bicker about the temperature our house should be. I win because I set the programmer on the thermostat, […]

Bloating dogs, barre class, and wine!

Hope everyone is having a great week! It was my turn for the ER shift Sunday, and we started the day with a phone call that frightens any ER vet.  It was a German Shepard that was acting like she needed to vomit, but nothing would come up. Of course we had them come straight in, […]

Puppies, triathlons, and Christmas outfits!

ER shift was a peaceful one.  My best ER buds joined me for this one.    I’m looking for a festive 10k or half marathon to run in the next month or so.  The only downfall of living somewhere with a “real” winter, is that the races are slim pickings.  I’m thinking of doing a […]

Foreign bodies, make shift workouts, and being back home

I flew home Tuesday night and of course had a busy day waiting on me at work, so I’m blending Wednesday and Thursdays posts together.  My apologies, but sometimes you just have to make due with what you can. I have to say it was pretty hard leaving this little pumpkin, but it’s always nice […]

Monday=Run day

Monday=run day! After spending most of the weekend soaking up the cuteness of my nephew, I was ready to hit the pavement this morning. I have to say, this is my favorite time of the year for running.  The sun is still shinning but the air is cool and crisp.  I’ve been avoiding the pavement as […]

Porcupine vs Dog

Happy half way through the week day! Some days working at an emergency practice is hectic and endless.  Hospitalized patients, walk-ins, boarders, emergencies, and regular patient appointments are all in an 8 (hopefully) hour work day. This was not one of those days.  Yes the morning is always busy, but everything just seemed to fall […]
