life journey, thought, animals and big smile :)

working with anything on you

Reblog from my facebook note

I used to work at a primate facility which located near a tourist resort. That day, we got call from the resort official informing that some of their deer died suddenly without any sign of illness. So we (the vets) go there to to an autopsy exam to find out what was the cause of the death.

Since we work with small animals, we didn’t have any large tools to do the necropsy… I only use surgery scissors, anatomy forceps and scalpel… and somehow, we did it just okay.

Anyway, the cause of the death was bloat, because, previously those deers didn’t have enough grass for their meal.

Bloat is an overdistention of the rumenoreticulum with the gases of fermentation, either in the form of a persistent foam mixed with the ruminal contents—called primary or frothy bloat, or in the form of free gas separated from the ingesta—called secondary or free-gas bloat. It is predominantly a disorder of cattle but may also be seen in sheep. The susceptibility of individual cattle to bloat varies and is genetically determined.

Siang tadi ada telpon ke vet yang mengatakan bahwa ada 2 ekor rusa resort yang mati (or ditemukan mati) dan mereka mau tahu penyebab kematiannya.
So, karena kerjaan kami udah beres (btw, itu udah menjelang makan siang… dan hari begitu panasnyaa) kami trio dari vet office meluncur ke reservoar untuk melakukan identifikasi kematiannya, or nekropsi
Karena peralatan nekropsi yang kami bawa tidak cukup memadai untuk kapasitas hewan besar, jadi ya nekropsi dilakukan seadanya dengan bantuan pinset, skalpel dan gunting bedah.
Diagnosa kami adalah (ciee… diagnosa…) Rusa ini kena bloat karena hari Sebelumnya hanya diberi pakan konsentrat dan sama sekali tidak ada hijauan.
Dari postmortem-nya ditemukan: lambung membesar berisi gas dan pakan, didndingrumen terjadi perdarahan terutama daerah “atas” (dari posisi rebahnya), intestinum juga terjadi perdarahan.
Sayangnya Rusa ini sedang bunting sekitar 3 bulan-an, kalau saja bisa lebih cepat ditangani…

well, after all we are vets

vets in action :D
