Hi, it has been a long wait but our appointment at UGA is coming soon. I have never been referred to a specialty veterinary medical school before and have no idea what to expect. Justus will have to fast for 12 hours, that alone will be hard to deal with. Due to covid-19 precautions I will have to hand him off in the parking lot and spend the day waiting for tests and results. I plan to pack my cooler with lunch, a book, my phone and of course, Flyer will keep me company. We were told to prepare to leave Justus overnight, so will try to do that. I imagine that the first thing that will happen is they will review why he is there and present me with a plan to diagnose his troubles, before they start scanning and scoping. I might want to pack some smelling salts for I'm sure I might faint dead away when they present the estimates. I expect to see a shaved leg for iv's while he's put under for the CT scan and nasal scope. I'm so full of 'what if's' I can hardly function! Do you have any experience with teaching veterinary hospitals and any advice for me?
