Adventure in The Everyday: Muir Woods

I love my iPhone (thank you Steve Jobs).

This past weekend we decided to pack ourselves into the car and drive over to Muir Woods. Actually, I have no clue if we drove over, down or up to Muir Woods because I’m a direction-challenged female. Regardless, we were halfway into the hour drive and I looked back and realized we’d forgotten to pack our camera. Ham sandwiches and Salt and Vinegar chips, check. Camera, nope. So, we used our handy-dandy iPhones instead.

 

The boys had a blast bumping along the path in their strollers and even explored a little on their own. There were lots of groups walking along the paths, but the dim light streaming through the trees and heavy padding of quiet made it seem like we were the only ones there. I have to say, driving on the winding, twisting roads to get there made my palms itch with beads of sweat, but the view as we took the corners and peeked through the tree tops was gorgeous. I’m a beach girl through and through, but every now and then, it’s nice to take a field trip through the wooded mountains and gain perspective.

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.
