    It honestly becomes just part of the job. You do so many that it does almost become routine. The hard ones are the animals that you get to know well over the years. You become very close to them...

    I won't argue about the 12 g, but with the doses of pentobarbital we use, they are unconscious before they arrest, therefore don't feel a thing. You can see it happen. As I inject, they drop their...

    You shouldn't have to pay twice for cytology on the same mass. As I mentioned earlier, a mass that hasn't grown appreciably in a couple of years is likely ok. I likely wouldn't bother re-aspirating...

    I can't give you a specific answer, but keep in mind that dogs aren't true carnivores. They are more ominiverous, meaning they need a varied diet. Cats are true carnivores that need a more meat...
