So this one time we admitted a piggy called Bangers. We put the IV catheter in an ear vein :)

Hi there, I am planning on taking a vet nursing course next year and I was wondering if there's any advice you have to give :) Also, where abouts in Aus did you undertake a course? cause I'm currently in Melbourne and they're all shutting down at the end of the year. Just my luck right haha. Anyway, great blog and good luck in your career :)

Hi there! I wasn’t aware they were shutting down? O: I studied at Box Hill TAFE as I’m in Melbourne, too :) I’m not sure what advice to give, except to make use of your classmates (study groups and helping each other with assignments) and teachers and ask as many questions as possible so you fully understand the content. 
Good luck with it! 

I attempted to practice some bandaging on a soft toy I have. It kind of worked and kind of didn’t. I didn’t have any soft cotton bandage so I couldn’t do that part, and the vet wrap I had at home was too big, haha.

Would it be okay to ask you about vet related questions? I have a cat showing an odd symptom and wanted an opinion before taking her in...

Hi there! Thanks for asking first :)
I always recommend taking a pet to your regular vet if you are worried about them.
I am a qualified vet nurse, but only veterinarians can make diagnoses. Even if I was a vet it would be rather unprofessional of me to tell you what I think it may be without being able to physically examine the cat.
I hope you understand, I just can’t give out advice over the internet.

Gorgeous.

Kitty Loves to Brush His Teeth!

So cute, although it seems he just tolerates it for the taste :P
I wish more people brushed their pets teeth!
