Is it disturbing? Heard the animal knows what you are doing to it...
No. Its very peaceful. Once the stuff goes into the vein, the animal falls asleep and death comes shortly afterwards.

The problem is sometimes at the point of death the animal lose control of the bowel and poo and pee which can be traumatizing for owner

The other problem is in very sick patients, cant get the vein then have to do intracardiac. Most of the time I will gas the animal with anesthetic then do intracardiac so as to not traumatize the owner and patient

if a vet can attend to all animals.. why can't he treat human ??
A long time ago, human and animal medicine were seen by the same doctor until the age of Renaissance they branch into 2 different discipline. Even with human medicine, it is further split into discipline like dentistry, podiatry, physiotherapy, etc....

EVERYONE starts off as apprentice.

Besides, whether you're a doctor,vet or engineer...you will still get sued if you mess up

Fyi, Do you know how millions of dollars are involved in just 1 race alone(9~12 race per raceday). The WHOLE turfclub is like a GIANT gold mine. I'd have apply for a job there if I were you, it always better than doing a day to day job in a chemical plant where I'm stuck in now

My Toy Poodle has yellowish discharge from her left ears. Other than cleaning it with pet ear lotion & plucking away the inner hairs. What else can I do

Thanks
Go see a vet?

Your dog may have otitis externa and may require antibiotic ointment. Also given SG so hot and humid and poodles tend to have hairy ear canals you dont want to wait till you get a full blown infection

Can u cure yourself like normal doc when u sick?
Well, if i am injured i can suture my wounds and i do know about antibiotics, pain relief, bla bla bla

However in peace time I will still defer to human doctors since the medicine we have is tailored made for dogs/cats so the dosage is very different

Take meloxicam for example, it often 5mg per tablet but for humans its about 15mg per tablet. Also the one for dogs has a strong beef taste so i am not eating that sh.t
