Although disabled, I have always loved my work with pet animals. I finally got approved for the ticket to work program through Social Security and I am back to working part time in Pet Grooming and dermatology. This is a recent conversation with the Evangelical Veterinarian's right-hand, ninja warrior for god.
Set the scene: I have a psycho cat that is coming at me with claws, teeth, anal discharges. I finally get it calmed and secured to my grooming table and I am petting him and talking sweetly to him. I called the vet for assistance by providing an injectable sedative for said cat. Vet's right-hand, ninja warrior walks in:
NW: I think all nasty animals should be euthanized!
Me: Who died and made you champion of the universe?
NW: Oh, so you would choose this nasty, evil cat over your children?
Me: Where the hell did that come from? Did you bring the shot??????
NW: Dr. Wiggins(name changed to protect the ignorant) is coming right over.
Me: I do not think Acepromazine will help this kitty, I hope he is bringing something to knock him out. He is covered in fleas and flea bite dermatitis and I hope to give him some relief.
NW: Why do you care? It is an evil, nasty cat? Screw evil, nasty cats!
Me: Well, I care because this is my chosen profession, I am being paid to provide a service by folks that expect me to treat their pets as if they were mine.
NW: Well, acepromazine is used to declaw cats!!! They feel every single ounce of the pain but are unable to respond to it!!
Me: What kind of ass-monkey veterinarian with access to any number of sedatives and anesthesia would put a cat through that?? Do you think because you are human you are superior to animals, giving you the right to abuse and extinguish them as you find necessary??
NW: You are crazy......(Stompstompstomp, slamming door)
god created her that smart and kind.....
