Holy sick animals Batman!

Last night was nuts. It was a Tuesday night, and we were slammed again. We had 7 patients in the hospital this morning. For a small ER practice with 1 overnight technician and 1 overnight doctor, that's quite a bit of patients. We had 2 extremely emergent patients at once - a Labrador in terrible respiratory distress bordering on ventilatory exhaustion and a mystery case - a young (3 year old) Border collie with severe muscle tremoring. I was running between 2 sets of distraught owners and 2 critical animals. It kept me on my toes.

More to come on the mystery case.
