Funny Song

A friend of mine just sent me a song. Here are the lyrics - I thought you'd all get a kick out of it ;)

The Yodeling Veterinarian of the Alps

Narrator Quartet
: There lived a man so long ago, his memory's but faint
Was not admired, did not inspire like president or saint
But people came from far and near with their afflicted pets
For a special cure they knew for sure wouldn't come from other vets!
Woooahhh ...

Larry the Vet
: This is a song for your poor, sick penguin
He's got a fever and his toes are blue
But if I sing to your poor, sick penguin
He will feel better in a day or two!
Yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hoo
Yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hee yodel-eee-ooo
Yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hoo
Yada-yada yada-yada yad-eee-ooo!

Pa the Vet's Nurse
: He's gone a little loopy,
In case you haven't heard.
Here's a couple' pennicilin
For your sicky arctic bird.

Narrator Quartet
: No skeptic could explain just how, nor could one oft rebut
The wonderous deeds that went on in that little Alpine hut.
Some would stand in silence while some just scratched their scalps
For the curious ways of the Yodeling Veterinarian of the Alps.
Woooahhh ...

Pa the Vet's Nurse
: Good news on the penguin, doc! He's up and kickin'!

: Meow!

Larry the Vet
: This is a song for your pregnant kitty
She's looking nauseous and a week past due
But if I sing for your pregnant kitty
She will feel better in a day or two!
Yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hoo
Yodel-leh-hee yodel-ye-dee yodel-eee-ooo
Yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hee yodel-aye-hoo
Yada-yada yada-yada ya-ga-doo!

Pa the Vet's Nurse
: Jump in your car, drive into the city,
Buy a jug of milk for your nauseated kitty.

Narrator Quartet
: The practice grew, their profits flew until one fateful day
When the nurse who did assist the doc asked for a raise in pay.
The doctor pondered this awhile, sat back and scratched his scalp, then said: 'No way, Jose!'
To the nurse of the Yodeling Veterinarian of the Alps.
Woooahhh ...

Pa the Vet's Nurse
: Good news on the kitty, doc! She's feelin' great. Six kittens. Named one after you.

: Growl!

Larry the Vet
: This is a song for your bear-trapped teddy
He looks uncomfy, think I'd be too.
But if I sing for your bear-trapped teddy
He will feel better in a day or two!
Yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hoo
Yodel-leh-hee O-layhee Oly-ooo
Yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hoo
Yodel-leh-hee yaba-daba yaba-doo!


Pa the Vet's Nurse
: Oh, yeah - that'll work. He's good.

Larry the Vet
: Yodel-leh-hee! Yodel-leh-hee yodel-leh-hoo!
No, wait! This should work!
Yodel-leh-hee! Yodel-leh-hoo yodel-leh-hoo!

Narrator Quartet
: Now the moral of the story, it's the point we hope we've made:
When you go a little loopy better keep your nurse well paid!

Larry the Vet
: Yodel-leh-hee! Yodel-leh-hoo!
Yodel odle odle aye de aye de ooo-ooo-ooo!

: Woah! Some would stand in silence while some just scratched their scalps
For the curious ways of the Yodeling Veterinarian of the Alps!

Larry the Vet
: Loo-loo!

Good A&P site?

Hi all, I'm new here.

I'm looking for a good A&P site for animals. Something like www.getbodysmart.com only for different species. Comparative anatamy is fine, too.

I have another question for you all. Have any of you ever seen a heartworm positive cat? I have never seen one, and back when I was studying, the only reported non-canine cases were in one man in Africa, and one horse (cant remember where). Of those who have seen a heartworm positive cat, what kind of climate did it live in?

I`m not really sure what I want to do with my life so I`m exploring a few different career options, one of which is to become a Vet Tech. My question is...from start to finish...what sort of programs/ schooling will help me get to that point?
I`m 21, from San diego, CA. I haven`t been in school since high school and have zero college experience.
I love animals, and it`s always been in the back of my mind to do something like this. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

Hi, I'm in the UK and looking to get work at a veterinary practice, but hardly any ads come up in my local paper or the job centre website. So, I was wondering if anyone knew any good places where I could hear about vacancies?

I've got a lot of experience and I've already contacted the practices I've been at to keep me informed, but avaliable work in animal care is so rare. I'd even be willing to work in reception, anything to get my foot in the door!

Early Desexing

What's everyone's view on early speying/neutering? By early I mean younger that 5 months. Have you ever noticed a pattern between early castration in cats and bladder blockages? Or early speying in dogs and incontinence? What I'm really trying to do is find evidence to support my dislike of early desexing ;)

Hi guys, I just joined and thought I'd say g'day. I'm a vet nurse from Sydney, Australia, in a small animal practice, and would have joined earlier if I'd known this comm was here :)

Hello everyone. My name's Jess, 21, loves animals to death, and interested in becoming a vet tech and/or veterinarian and a zoologist. I would really love to open up my own wildlife animal habitat/sanctuary one day and it is a dream that I want to do my damndest to make come true. Is there any information I can gather or sources I should go to when it comes to my dream of opening up my own wildlife habitat/sanctuary? Can being a zoologist help me with that? Thanks.

Invasion of the chick

I've got a two day old crested pigeon right now. It is SO hideous, yet so cute at the same time. Is that even possible?
I guess its just one of those things you cant explain... like pug dogs. Or something like that.

I'll post pics once my camera decides to want to start working again. :)
Its so tiny, its down feathers are still all yellow, and its eyes are still shut.

Im not going to name it until it is a week old. I don't particularly wish to become too attatched to the little bugger just yet. It became especially easy not to become too attatched once it pooed on my hand. So I think it will be easy sailing from here on.
Not much else to report just now. This is the first animal I've had in care for months! I think I'll be needing to get new food and such, since it would most probably be past its used by date since it has been open since the last birds I've had. Ew. Fear not though, peoples, I 'borrowed' fresh food from work! Huzzah, go me!

My brain is having a meltdown after getting up every two hours last night in order to feed the poor thing. It's definately eating a lot more, but I'm getting kind of worried as its chest seems to be inflating like a balloon, like its crop is fit to burst or something. I've been feeding it every two hours, and only enough to fill its stomach for the moment, not too much. So I really don't know what to make of it.
I dont have the best experience with newborn hatchlings. I really dont know what to expect here. Give me a mature bird that knows what its doing anyday over this constant worry.

If anybody has any hatchling experience I would love to know what your thoughts are on the matter.

X-Posted. Sorry!
