I wanted to post this video for all the people out there who think our job is easy, who think we are overpaid, who think we don't deserve what we get.
This was a neglect case that I saw a while back. This dog died. It broke my heart into a zillion pieces. This dog was entirely covered in ants and maggots when he presented, and what you are seeing is a huge hole in his back, filled with maggots. He had wounds over most of his body that were infected, and he was septic. But dammit he died without pain, in a world pumped full of morphine. Thank god we were there for him.
I wish I could pump the owner full of morphine. Too much morphine. Oh, and she was a PA. Yep, a physicians assistant.
What was even more sad, was that I TRIED to get this owner into trouble, to no avail.
You can judge the quality of a society by how well it's animals are treated. I think our society is in trouble.
