Quick Tidbits :: Guest Post Tomorrow

Summer is officially over. 

Josh and I could not stop laughing about this poor chair (and how hilarious he looked). We used to have two lawn chairs, but earlier in the month, I busted the other the same exact way. Sadly, Jacob was the only one around to see me fall through and there’s no photo. At first I thought it was a sign that I needed to lay off the chocolate, but now I’m certain it’s just a sign that Summer is officially over. Whew! Because really, life without chocolate? 

This is what we Bucksons (my side of the family) call an Air Baby. My dad used to throw us in the air too and we all loved it, except my younger brother who would sort of tense into this ball of bottled emotion and then calmly straighten out when it was over, and go about his business. Judah is a huge fan of air baby. Jacob takes after his Uncle Joel and goes all tense. 

We had a pretty lazy weekend. Nothing adventurous planned, just a few bike rides and short trips to the store for odds and ends. Josh gave me a ton of free time off and on throughout the weekend; bless that sweet man! He’s really good at not waiting until I’m blowing steam out of my ears and alternating sobs and crazy laughter before taking over ginger duty and letting me be alone for a little while. He’s such a team player. 

I wanted to make sure to let you know that I have a really yummy guest post planned for tomorrow. It’s from one of my favorite blogs and I am sure you’ll love it!

Hope your weekend was great!

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.
