A veterinarian’s work is never done.
We can guarantee that even our veterinarians dinner conversations and phone calls almost always revolve around their patients and clients. Their passion and love for animals is revealed through their dedication to solve a difficult case and their desire to be an advocate for those who cannot speak. That is why we admire our veterinarians and that is why they are everyday superheroes (minus the cape).
Speaking of veterinary medicine and how unpredictable the job is - wait until you hear about this phone call! It was an uneventful afternoon at the clinic, that is until we received a bizarre phone call. Trouble with phone reception left us feeling like the “Can you hear me now” commercial. The only information our receptionist could determine was that the owner would arrive at the clinic with a mule that needed stitches. The truck and trailer rounded the corner and the mule quietly unloaded. Our team stepped in and quickly analyzed her condition. As Dr. Settles states, “At first, I didn’t think it was that bad, I noticed cuts and scrapes on her legs – nothing major. But, when I moved her tail to the side I saw a large, gaping hole.”
