This is the reason why we need more people going into veterinary research!
First of all, undergraduate institutions should really start letting students get more involved in research to cultivate interest. We need more pre-vet kids heading to programs like Cornell’s combined PhD/DVM. It’s definitely crossed my mind, but I’m only starting to get involved in scientific research now.
It scares me that we don’t know this much about something as common and as terrifying as laminitis. The horse that died when I was interning with Doc M had it so bad that it was heartbreaking to see him trying to stand. Ahhhh haha we need more people going into research!
almost done studying for the bio 24 final.
but nothing compares to orgo, so i honestly don’t mind.
This is an Anolis sagrei lizard and if things go as planned I might be working in my VertZoo prof’s lab next term, helping one of his graduate students with research! I’m super excited. The grad student (Grad Student M) is doing work on the effects of climate change on these lizards in Honduras!
There are SO many opportunities to get involved in research at Dartmouth as an undergrad and I can’t believe I haven’t taken advantage of that until now!
i broke a test tube
started over on two recrystallizations
spilled ice on the floor
annoyed the TA
and have no idea whether i identified the unknown compound correctly
it’s going to be a fun term
My first horse teeth!
Those of you wanting to be equine vets will have to be okay pulling teeth… Big teeth!
For those that are interested I took these out whilst doing a dental check on an older, 20+ horse (Hence the shorter roots). We will often be called out when an owner notices the horse excessively playing with the bit, tenderness when turning in a particular direction (on a certain rein) or salivatation whilst eating (amongst a host of other reasons!). Common issues include the grinding molar teeth becoming sharp, causing ulceration, soreness and reluctance to eat or drooling. Something we also often find is food becoming jammed in sockets from previously removed teeth that narrow towards the bottom, compacting and jamming food debris which has a tendency to rot and smell pretty gross.
The first time I watched a tooth extraction the vet asked if I wanted to keep the teeth!
omg mitosis *-*
why do donuts teach it better than my teacher does??
And that is how mitosis works, ladies and gentlemen.
