Oh the Life of a Vet Tech

Worked a split today. That's two 4-hour shifts. One from 8-12 and then I go back 4-8. During my break I took a nap to try and get rid of a headache and woke up in time to run to the barn and have a great cruise on the B-man.


He was great and we fit in a couple flying lead changes. 
I was stoked for the trail ride I had planned for tomorrow with Amanda and Kate with Maddy-horse and the Buxom Blonde...

You know when things just don't go as planned?


I've been bitten before... but not like this. Dog was out for blood and not even a basket muzzle was going to stop her. Let's just say, no trail ride for me tomorrow. Instead Kate is going to come and hopefully have a great ride to blog about. I may even try and set up a course for her... if I can pick up the poles...

I won't lie. I've dealt with some pretty intense caution pets but most have been scared or in pain and uncomfortable. I was confident in what I walked in the room to do and after the muzzle was put on I was completely sure we'd get in and out. It was only a simple injection. Yeah... no.

At least I've had some pretty awesome rides this week and already have the rest of the week off for Equine Affaire with the girls. The ER doc is definitely worried about infection so I have to be careful in my pony choices. Brantley has a few awesome Aunties that are willing to fill in though! 

I just hope they give me some stronger meds on Wednesday...
