    Yeah, thinking about it, she talked about ECGs and pace makers in humans. I hadn't realised how much there was to listening to heart sounds until she explained some of the details eg when I asked whether it was the same as a heart murmur. Paramedics have often talked a bit about heart rhythm when doing ECGs on my parents (both have known atrial fibrillation) a paramedic once explained to me the difference between irregularly irregular and standard irregular. ... there's so much to learn. No wonder it takes to long to train to be a vet.

    I was really frazzled when we got back at half past midnight and he was just tucking into coriander like he didn't understand what all the fuss was about


    There was a one in four chance of it being our favourite vet on call and at least it happened when my parents were in my brother's care.. so at least all that worked out well!
