The Everyday: Friday

Friday! All week I’ve been a day behind, then a day ahead and finally, today I’m caught up. I’m so looking forward to this weekend. Family time, coffee date with my friend Malisa (I’m super excited!) and hopefully at least one evening by the fireplace with a cup of hot coco in hand. The weather is cooling off here!

We had a really great day today. It was just the kind of relaxing day we needed to end the week. We busted out the bow ties today and played dress up…but you know, in a manly-boyish kind of way. ha! Both boys secretly enjoyed it because neither one of them wanted to take them off.Jacob nonchalantly told us that when he grows up, he’s going to take care of Judah, then promptly looked at Judah and told him that he was supposed to stay little so he could take care of him. Their relationship matures each day and I love seeing them grow together. 

Also, may I just tell you, thanks for your comments! I love reading them and getting to know everyone. You guys are always to encouraging and sweet. Sometimes I’m not great about replying and I’m not sure if you actually check back to see if I have, but they really do make my day!I hope you have an amazing weekend! What do you have planned?

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.
