So one of the vet techs who is training me (and who happens to be my age) started going progressively deaf when she was 5. When she was going to college she needed a hearing assistant dog to alert her when she was being called or her alarm was going off, etc. She trained Misty, her sheltie, to do that. Since she went to school for vet tech-ing, Misty was poked and prodded a lot. So today I learned on her how to draw blood from a jugular vein, hind leg (i already learned front legs) and express anal glands! Now I just need to tackle cats and catheters and I’m set!!!
