Ebb and Flow

Yesterday possessed that particular ebb and flow that some Monday’s seem to carry. Moments like sitting outside the frozen yogurt shop with my little gingers and my mom, taking in the bustle of down town followed by moments of frustration, time-outs and ranch dressing smeared all over the kitchen floor. Then full circle to playing in the sprinklers and giggling through pre-bed time sillies.

In the midst of it all, whether frustrations or joys, I know there’s an ebb and flow that exists. And knowing that helps me focus less on the anxious times and more on the peaceful, happy chunks of the day. I love a good treasure hunt and finding the understated joys makes those moments louder, more exciting and noteworthy. 

Sitting on the rocks at the edge of the bay, looking out over the glassy water and lights of the city line, Josh and I chatted about life. The things we wish did not exist, the things we want to fill our life with and ending with the conclusion that what we have, is good. The challenges, the ebb and flow, that’s what makes life substantial. I wouldn’t change that proverbial ebb and flow for anything.

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.
