I realized a blessing that my animals and I are thankful for at about 4:30 a.m. on Sunday morning: good veterinary care. Long story short, our veterinarian came out to fix a cow with a prolapsed uterus, not an everyday occurrence but something that happens occasionally to a cow that has recently had a calf. If you’ve never seen this done, I don’t recommend it as a fun time. If you don’t even know what a prolapsed uterus is, you’re even better off.
The truth is, animal agriculture depends on veterinarians for all sorts of issues related to animal health. Timely diagnosis and remedy can easily mean the difference between life and death for a down-and-out bovine. So today especially, I am thankful for the profession that helps my animals get back on their feet.
