After 8 years in day practice (with 5 years encouragement from Tiffany Lynn Bartlett and my awesome husband Ron Dev) I made the move to specialty. While I wouldn't trade my day practice experience for anything, I can say it feels like I found my home here.
There are infinite chances to grow, learn, explore, and have so much fun while saving lives, the best part being that you can be part of this team, too.

I was watching a vet show and as usual there was an animal with a broken leg that needed repairing. They end up with a to the paw cast. Now one of the issues that keeps being brought up is that if the leg is used a lot the cast breaks down and you have to put on a new one. What if there was an open sided plastic form (open for sizing and in various sizes) that you could put on either over or under the cast. I don’t know enough about casting to know what would work best or if it might even be a case to case decision. Oooooh here’s a thought. Come up with a pattern for various items one uses in practice and a way to size them up and down or even input measurements to get a custom fit. Then a veterinarian office could use a 3D printer, printer and material prices going down all the time, and print out the perfect dooflatchie to use when healing. No worries about having something in stock. As long as you have materials, you have stock. Kinda like a replicator in Star Trek but without the speed. I like to throw ideas like this into the universe. If I can see how an idea might help people or the planet then perhaps it will be the solution someone was looking for. #SirMerlinFuzzybutt#catsofinstagram#veternarian#veternarymedicine#3dprinting
What a day. Dr. Strain diagnosed Gypsy with heaves. He also floated her teeth. Her mouth looks good.
Here are the girls braiding her mane and forelock as she’s waking up.
Meds, no more round bales and soaked hay (for 30 days) hopefully will improve her respiratory distress.
My sweet Khaleeso, yesterday was the most toughest and difficult Tuesday because our pup was put into quarantine for 10 days, I have never been this mistreated and scrutinized in my life at any former establishment.. this “vet doctor” should not be able to practice canine medicine.. I wanted to share our story... because it is important to know that accidents like this happen but how you conduct yourself is the real question. Long story short my khaleeso was brought in for a routine neutering and updating of his vaccines.. well ... after giving him 4 vaccines and pre medicating him ... and about to give him the 5th shot poor thing had enough and snipped at the Nurse. He was scared , highly medicated and alone with strangers.. I get a call and the doctor was calling my dog dangerous and ironically he had me come by to hold him so they can give him the last shot to proceed with the neuter... the Nurse tells me once we are done you will come get him right away.. I said ok ... well I got a call from the doctor... that they called animal control and my dog is going into quarantine.. I was heartbroken... I went back to say bye and the doctor did not even come out.. did nothing... my dog just had surgery and he can’t even rest in his own home.. o but the surgery was done and the doctor got paid.. Our dog has never hurt anyone .. and he loves humans and loves to play.. he was highly medicated and was scared.. now we have a missing piece in our home for 10 days.. excuse my language but F*** that doctor, he took our money and screwed us.. the nurse was fine she returned to work... working in this profession I would assume you would take proper precautions.. but I guess they are not skilled enough to know that.. see you soon our furry boy ❤️❤️❤️🐕 #gsdofinstagram#ddrgermanshepherd#germanshepherd if you would like to know more of the story just DM me too much to type #mansfieldtx#lifetimefitness#dogsofmansfield#debbielaneclinic#animalclinic#veterinarian#germanshephard#texasveterinarymedicalassociation#misconduct#veternarymedicine
They say veterinarians have the healthiest pets - well what about extended family’s pets?? Dr. Bolotin’s sister adopted a feline friend about a year ago 🐱 Last week Murray (known as Monster by those closest to him) seemed very ill 🤒 His mom was very worried, and brought him to Just Cats so that Dr. B could take a look. After opening Monster up, and removing what looked to be a little toy mouse 🐭 from his stomach, we waited to see if our little friend would recover. If you swipe right, you will see our technician Cindy providing pets and post-op love to monster. You’ll also see a picture of Monster 4 days post-op, back home in Maryland joining his mom for coffee in the backyard 😋☕️ All is well. Monster, try to stick to real mice from now on 🐭🐭🐭
Seems like a good day to brush up on some very important and scientific cat terminology 📔 If your cat is doing a “cat roll” they are most likely in a deep sleep 💤 (possibly dreaming about scratching the furniture or jumping on the counter while you’re asleep). If you have a cat baguette on your hands- you might be dealing with an extremely relaxed cat who won’t be phased by anything. Do not mistake this for an invitation for a belly rub 🙅🏽♀️
****The Chattanooga Dining Adventures of a Girl and Her Dog****
Its Spring time folks! The perfect time to grab your pooch, sit outside to enjoy the warmer weather and visit your new favorite pet friendly restaurant and watering hole! And I’m your host, Whitney Turnbull ! I am an employee at the Animal Hospital of Signal Mountain who loves animals, a good outdoor patio and fine food & drink. Every week, my fur baby, Zealand and I will be heading out to Chattanooga area restaurants and bars on the hunt for the best pet friendly locations! We will keep you up to date with our weekly reviews and experiences; So head on over to the Animal Hospital of Signal Mountains website, Facebook and Twitter. THE PET FRIENDLY RATING SCALE:
1-5 PAWS (1 PAW= minimal tail wag - 5 PAWS= your owner just got home excited (extremely accommodating and friendly to pets)
Universal Joint: 5 PAWS This is a great place to visit on a nice day for those looking to sit outside with their pup and enjoy great food and drink. I have been here several times with my dog, Zealand, and each time an employee has offered to bring a bowl of water out to her! A big bonus is that there are always lots of people with their dogs so all the pups can socialize while their humans indulge in the various spirits and delicious food that UJ has on their extensive menu. I give UJ five stars for their friendliness and accommodation to our furry companions! Pro tip: try the Chatt Whisky Icee
