i’m really hoping the same thing… ugh.
Worked with a tech yesterday because we didn’t have enough kennel staff. My coworkers (some of them) love alpha stare downs and scruffing dogs and talk a lot about…
Well that’s horrifying. At my school we covered behaviors for the major species we deal with, large and small. This was mainly about natural behaviors but that’s obviously an important part of working with the (i.e. moving cattle as a herd). As for feline/canine behavior the focus was on low stress restraint and Sophia Yin’s book was on the recommended reading list (not required because $$$). That said, our teacher is working on getting boarded in behavior and works as a behaviorist. So….
ETA: That said there are some people (instructors) in the program who handle animals in a way I don’t agree with (i.e. scruffing cats).
Mercury embolism to the lung.
A 21 year old dental assistant attempted suicide by injecting elemental mercury intravenously. She presented to the emergency room with trouble breathing & bloody sputum. CXR showed that the mercury was distributed in the lungs in a vascular pattern.
The patient was discharged after one week, and at follow-up at 10 months, she was healthy, with none of the effects of mercury poisoning.
