Outfit: Of Boots

{Sweater: Thrifted, Scarf and Leg Warmers and Boots: Ross, Belt: Target}The title of this post makes it sound like I made an outfit out of boots. I did not. I’m also wearing a sweater and jeans.

When I first moved to Kansas City, I bought a pair of really cute boots with a pointy little heel, thinking I’d be all set. Silly Florida girl. Do you know, I wore those boots twice and then the snow and ice came and the practical-lets-not-kill-ourselves-by-falling-on-ice Jodi bought ugly yet practical fur lined snow boots. And that was that. This year, we aren’t in Kansas anymore (yes, that was a Wizard of Oz reference…which I’ve never seen).

But still, I’m hedging my bets by buying semi-practical boots. No pointy heels, but no fur lining either. But let’s be honest, even if Winter here proves that I can prance around in pointy heeled boots without slipping on ice, I probably won’t. I have this attachment to my ankles and I’d like to keep them from breaking. This lady cannot wear heels…successfully.

Now I’m off to Judah’s IEP meeting. Maybe they’ll swoon over my new boots and give us extra therapies and everything we’re asking for.

What’s your favorite Fall outfit? And tell me, am I the only one who can’t wear heels?

p.s. I also cannot figure out how to tie a fashion scarf to my liking and it just hangs there looking like a lazy afterthought. Never mind, the boys figure out how to make it into a noose, effectively choking my neck, so I give up. :)

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.
