Halloween 2011

Last year, Judah’s preschool had an awesome Halloween/Fall party. The kids who wanted to, dressed up and then all the classes paraded around the facility trick or treating. The staff handed out treats in each room and the kids had a blast. Judah tolerated suspenders, so we dressed him as a “geek” and Jacob went as a little gentleman. This year if we were dressing up, I’d go as left overs because there are literally two spoonfuls of lasagna smashed into my sweatpants along with yogurt and a few bits of chocolate. Judah was off his game today, Josh is working late and Jacob decidedly protested dressing up. So, we made our own festivities at home. The afternoons are my favorite with these guys, even on non-holiday days. Since our mornings are pretty structured and we spend most of our energy getting dressed and out the door, our afternoons are spent goofing off in our pajamas…and the goofing off is exasperated on sugar induced days like today.And what one brother does, the other has to top. One second everything is quiet and calm and the next, someone has busted into the chocolate covered cherries and is shoving them into their mouth like it’s their last dying wish.
We’re a bunch of messy leftovers today, but there was candy and where there is candy, all is well. At least on this particular day, right?

We aren’t huge Halloween fans, mainly because neither of our kids are really into it and usually outings like trick or treating set Judah off, but I’m curious what you normally do on Halloween?

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.
