It’s the third Friday of the month, which means I only have a few days of my veterinary rotation. You may wonder how the world of pharmacy and veterinary even mix?
A lot of pets (yep, we’re talking about any animal that is considered a pet) take human medications or have their own specific drugs. As a pharmacist, I have animal patients all the time and it’s important for me to know their medications. That way I can counsel their owners on how to get their animal to take their medication. -
This rotation is pretty dope so let me share with you some facts that I’ve learned since starting my rotation: ✨ Your fur babies have similar diseases as humans. I just listened to a puppy today that had a Grade II year murmur, which is scary!
✨If your animal has a behavioral issues (like dog aggression, fearfulness of people, etc), please get referred to a behavior specialist! It’s not just how they are. It’s like a human with mental disease, and they need specialized training to get better. ✨Surgeries for animals are just as unique and specialized as the human side. I’ve seen a ton of surgeries on this rotation! They are also super expensive.
