It’s tough to be a vet

By |March 19th, 2014|

Every body thinks my job is so glamorous. I talk to people and they always tell me how they always wanted to be a vet, but something happened and they never went to college or they didn’t apply. People call or stop me and ask if I need an assistant. It seems like every where I go people want to be me. I hear from people quite frequently about how it must be nice to be your own boss, set your own hours or answer to no one. Well, my answer is usually be glad you didn’t go to […]

House of cards

By |March 19th, 2014|

I was on a call this morning with one of my regular cattle clients, doing my usual multitasking balancing act.  The phone rang as I was climbing over the fence to get to the calf (my patient) while  trying to avoid an unhappy mom that was harassing the gate in an attempt to keep us away from her baby.  I ignored the first time it rang but when they called right back, I answered assuming that it must have been someone in dire need of me right that moment, but continued to work on the calf in question.  The […]

Feast or famine

By |March 19th, 2014|

When it rains…it pours.
Like most things in life, being a large animal vet typically runs all or nothing. There are times of the year that are naturally busier due to weather and life cycles. Spring time is always busy and we usually have our hands full with spring vaccinations, coggins tests, foalings, calvings, kiddings, lambings, colics and founders (due to the lush green grass growth) and then rebreeding all those females. People are out riding more and everyone is loving the great weather. Not to mention that when bad things happen, they always seem to happen in a rash […]

When my phone rings

By |March 19th, 2014|

My phone rings all the time. Sometimes it rings because there is an emergency, or because someone thinks it is an emergency but turns out not to be, or someone wants to schedule an appointment, or it is just the wrong number.

For anyone out there that does not know how our phone system at Bear Creek Mobile Vet works, during the day if you call the main line (704-986-0000) it rings in the office. However, at the end of the day, when the office person leaves, they transfer the phone to the doctor’s cell phone. At that point, any […]

Quiet time in the pool

By |March 19th, 2014|

As most of you know ,I am a very busy person at work and at home. It has always been a struggle to balance taking care of everyone else (and their animals) and myself. I’ve never really made time for myself. My physical health and mental well-being are always taking the proverbial back seat. The years have taken their toll on my body, especially my back. Pulling calves and kneeling under horses to sew up cut legs and wrestling with goats and other critters had me nearly crippled and living on ibuprophen, caffeine and B vitamins just to keep […]

Are you prepared for a disaster? Part I

By |March 12th, 2014|

WOULD YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO?

What if your barn caught fire? Or there was a hurricane or flood in our area?
What about a disease outbreak that affected your animals? (Foot and Mouth disease-cattle, pigs, goats, etc ; or Vesicular Stomatitis-horses, cattle, goats, pigs, etc.)
Most people try hard not to think about these things happening to them, but in the event that something like this did happen, would you be able to handle the effects on your farm? Would you be able to assist your neighbors or your community as well?
Being prepared isn’t something that just happens. It is an […]

How to Build a Go Bag

By |March 12th, 2014|

What goes in my Go-Bag?
First, there is no perfect answer to this question. What suits one person or family might not suit yours. What is appropriate for a person in Alaska, wouldn’t apply in the deserts of Arizona. We wil share some great ideas for items for your bag below, but you also need to keep individual factors in mind when planning.
Keep these thoughts in your mind when you plan your go-bag:

What is appropriate for the climate where I live?
What is appropdiate for the climate I’m going to? (If you’re planning to travel a significant distance.)
How many family members […]
