YOU HAVE VANQUISHED ME, MIGHTY BEAST
Cub: DAD STOP
Cub: DAD OH MY GOD
Lion: REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE…
So Tumblr, I have officially started vet school! Week one includes knowing these bad boys inside out. Anatomical directions. Very useful for explaining quickly and accurately where a wound is over the phone to other vets, or describing where an inscision should be made. I hope my notes are clear enough!
Head wise rostal is towards the nose with caudal towards the ears. Body wise, cranial is towards the head with caudal towards the tail. Dorsal means to the top of the body with ventral meaning the bottom of the body trunk. Proximal means towards the body trunk and distal means away from the body trunk. Medial is towards the mid-line of the body with lateral being away from the mid-line. Paw-wise, dorsal means away from the palm and palmar means towards the palm. With the hind feet plantar means towards the sole.
There are also ‘planes’ in which scans an be taken. In my drawing the blue planes are called transverse planes. They divide cranial from caudal, and limb wise proximal from distal. The green plane is the dorsal plane dividing dorsal from ventral. The yellow plane is the sagital plane and divides the animal in to left and right.
I have a practical session on these terms tomorrow so will come back with even more information then! x
Yep, this was a nightmare! I remember it all too well, BUT it does make charting SOOOOO much easier
A graduate student has created the first man-made biological leaf. It absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant. He did this by suspending chloroplasts in a mixture made out of silk protein. He believed it can be used for many things but the most striking one is the thought that it could be used for long distance space travel. Plants do not grow in space, but this synthetic material can be used to produce oxygen in a hostile environment. (Video)
the final episode of Breaking Bad aired one year ago today, on September 29th 2013."I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it, and I was really I was alive"

May you have enough money to pay your bills this month with a little extra left over for a bit of fun.
This is one of the nicest things to wish for someone.
