Aggie, call me crazy and weird (my coworkers do), but I donít know why or where the connection comes from or if there is a connection to something else? - but I really, really struggle when I have to put a sick patient down when they come in wearing a cute sweater or a collar with a bell on it. Iím tearing up right now thinking about it. I lose it every time. Iíve gotten better emotionally at euthanizing sick patients, but when thereís cute accessories attached to them, I still have a hard time with that. I have NO idea why that is.
I mostly work day shifts now but will work two to three overnights a month as I get paid really well since it seems no one wants to do them (hmm I wonder why&#128521. I had an elderly man in last night with his schnauzer named Princess Grace-OMG she was the cutest schnauzer -her head was so tiny. She was in for euthanasia as she had a neurological condition and heart disease -euthanizing companions of older people makes me extremely sad as I know they likely wonít get any more pets. Seeing older men crying makes me so sad.

lol
I worked four 10-hour nights, but I had 3 days off together, which I liked. And it worked so well with my kids schedule. Plus, it saved on daycare which was really expensive. My husband hated it because we didnít see each other as much and ďthe bed was too bigĒ without me in it with him lol. So it was a very short lived experience. Now, Iím just a M-F mornings, normal schedule.

I couldnít. That would make me very sad as well. Itís already hard enough seeing anyone cry in those situations, let alone an older couple where their pet has been a family member for a very long time. I had a younger man where he just would not let his cat go. Her gums were completely white and I had to explain to him that it was time. She had lymphoma.

Working 10 hours a day at Amazon and only having 2 30 minutes break. 4 days of work is a good thing but there should be an hour-long break to make it easier.

Oh no! I posted about an HBC I had when I was working in Michigan. They just left him inside the door and told us to help him, then they just left. We tried to save him, but we ended up losing him. I hope your patient makes it. Please keep me posted, Aggie.

Iím really sorry, Aggie. You had such a tough weekend.

Yeah, my HBC patient was about 10 years ago, but at the time, I had a feeling we wouldnít be able to save him.

Maybe I need to play the lottery too. If I won, Iíd only be retiring to get away from the people who come in with their pets lol.

I spent a lot of time at a very busy animal hospital toward the end of my last pup's life and learned way more than I ever wanted to know. They had a lot of emergencies coming in and you just hear stuff. So I learned HBC.
