Riding Bikes

We’ve joined the rest of town and have become bike owners. I’m thrilled, like beyond thrilled, because there are all kinds of fun things to do that are just a tad bit too far to walk to, but perfect for a bike ride (hello frozen yogurt shop!).

Last sunday, we bought two bikes and a kid-trailer thing for the boys to ride in. I was nervous that the boys would hate the cart, but they beg, like literally on hands and knees, to go for rides. It’s the perfect solution for Josh’s commute from the Ferry in the city to his office and it’s nice for the boys and I to have alternate transportation if we’re wanting to make a quick run to the store or go down to the library. Plus, Judah’s school is within biking distance and if we ever have car troubles again, we won’t need to rent a vehicle and Judah won’t miss class.

The only downside, my legs and booty hurt from all that exercise. The upside? All that exercise. :)

P.S. The boys do have helmets and we’re working on keeping them on their heads. Until they master it, we’re sticking to the bike trails in our neighborhood; which actually lead to most of the places we want to go like the library, parks and grocery store}

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.
