Scatterscrolled my male progen to this:

Kinda blah but I played around and got this:

Not sure how I feel about, plus I’d have to get all the genes. They’re also not really my colors. I also kind of want to change him to a Snapper at some point as well. I wish I could just repick them. Go for it, re-scroll?

Urine Sediment Examination

Microscopic examination of urine sediment should be routine when examining urine for abnormalities. 

Equipment List:

  • Fresh Urine Sample
  • Standard Microscope
  • x2 Glass Slides
  • x2 Slide Covers
  • x2 Bullet Tubes
  • Centrifuge
  • Pipettes
  • Sedi-Stain

Step One: Suck 3-5ml of fresh Urine up into a syringe and place into a conical tube. Repeat this, so you have two tube of urine to test.

The sample needs to be as fresh as possible to ensure that there has been no deterioration of any cells present and that additional urinary crystals have not formed. 

Step Two: Place the tubes in the centrifuge, opposite each other to ensure the centrifuge is balanced. The sample should be spun at 1200rpm for 3mins.

Do not spin the urine for any longer that 3 mins, as excessive spinning will damage any cells present in the urine.

Step Three: Once spun down, using a pipette remove and discard most of the supernatant leaving the sediment and a small amount of urine in the bottom of each tube.

Step Four: Secure the lid and flick the bottom of the tube to re-suspends the sediment in the small amount of remaining urine. 

By re-suspending the sediment in the urine, a smoother smear will be created when placed on the slide.

Step Five: In ONE of the tubes add 1 drop of sedi-stain and flick the tube a couple of times.

In your practical exams they will ask you to make one plain slide and one stained slide, however in actually practice it is vets preference.

Step Six: Grab your slides and place one drop of plain sediment on one slide and one drop of stained sediment on the other. Carefully cover each drop with a slide cover. 

Slide covers are extremely important as they protect the microscope lens from coming into actually contact with the lens and damages them.

Step Seven: Place under the microscope and examine with the x10 and x40 objective lens.

The whole title debate of the veterinary world infuriates me. I just don’t understand the arguments that you should be called a veterinary technician if you don’t have a license. Yes you may and are most likely educated and are probably awesome and know a lot of stuff. HOWEVER. You did not attend an approved program and did not pass a national exam. There is no one accrediting you and checking that you actually know what you are doing. There are great assistants (there is nothing wrong with this title) at my place and there are less great ones who don’t keep up with how things should be done and the educating gaps are like, mind blowing. Or better yet, “New job, never worked at a clinic, starting as a vet tech!”.

I mean, if this was human medicine there would be an outrage. Nurse is protected title because hey, you worked hard for that and you proved you know your stuff. Not everyone can go around and all themselves a nurse. I mean, wouldn’t you be upset if some random person came in to treat you, give you drugs, etc. and you had no idea of their educational background?

So yeah, it pisses me off a bit when I see, during Vet Tech week assistants talking about being a technician.

The joys of a cup of tea.

This is why I drink about 5 cups of tea a day.

Must. Drink. Moar. Tea.

are we forgetting that it tastes like a warm cup of home and liquid love

I am drinking tea right now. :p

Okay I can get behind most of this but “kills over 80% of viruses within 10 minutes”, really…?
The tea isn’t even absorbed into the bloodstream within 10minutes. Good luck “killing 80% of viruses” without even being anywhere near viruses or immunity cells…
Tea is good, sure. But it sure isn’t magical and pretending it is isn’t going to help anyone.

Cure that ebola!
