She dun growed up. *sniff*
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?
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.
