Thrifted and Worn

I wore my pajamas almost the entire weekend. I know, where’s my dignity? I’m pretty sure it was boycotting the whole lets wake up at the crack of dawn thing my kids were so excited about. I was actually dressed (in real clothes) for a total of two hours. I spent those two hours thrifting and driving around Oakland. I probably didn’t need to actually put on real clothes for those activities, but at least I made the effort. Josh worked most of the weekend so it was pretty low key around here. I was glad I took those few hours to go thrifting though because I found these jeans (and the shirt and bag, but the jeans were my favorite find). I love dresses and skirts and I love vintage, but jeans, the modern-fit-my-curves kinda jeans, they have a special place in my heart. There are two things I’m not easy to please on: shoes and jeans. Both items have to look AND feel great and I rarely find those two qualities. These pants were much too big (two sizes), but I knew I could probably alter them to fit since they already had a great shape. I’ve mentioned the Cotton & Curls blog before, but I have to mention it again. This tutorial was magic. I’ve never altered pants before, but they turned out great. Side note: I can never pass up blue and white stripes (especially when on a no-wrinkle shirt) and I’m a sucker for leather backpacks. In my defense, the previous backpack I was carrying around was decorated elaborately with Toy Story figures and didn’t match anything I owned. You understand that it was the boys’ backpack and I only carried it around for diapers and snacks right? :)

Another side note: I never thrift for my unmentionables. That’s just gross and I have standards.

Veterinary medicine

Veterinary medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, disorder and injury in non-human animals. The scope of veterinary medicine is wide, covering all animal species, both domesticated and wild, with a wide range of conditions which can affect different species.

Veterinary medicine is widely practiced, both with and without professional supervision. Professional care is most often led by a veterinary physician (also known as a vet, veterinary surgeon or veterinarian), but also by paraveterinary workers such as veterinary nurses or technicians. This can be augmented by other paraprofessionals with specific specialisms such as animal physiotherapy or dentistry, and species relevant roles such as farriers.

Veterinary science

Veterinary science helps human health through the monitoring and control of zoonotic disease (infectious disease transmitted from non-human animals to humans), food safety, and indirectly through human applications from basic medical research. They also help to maintain food supply through livestock health monitoring and treatment, and mental health by keeping pets healthy and long living. Veterinary scientists often collaborate with epidemiologists, and other health or natural scientists depending on type of work. Ethically, veterinarians are usually obliged to look after animal welfare.
