Happy Veterinary Technician week!!
The last 6 years of my life have been full of chaos, fun, stress, long hours, happy (and sad) endings, amazing coworkers, and did I mention stress?😝
This job is a crazy one and not for the faint of heart.... but man is it rewarding. So thankful to be able to do what I am passionate about and doing it with some pretty kick ass team mates. This week is for US!! ❤️
A lot of people were asking for updates on this little guy, so here he is. PEPPINO was hospitalized for nearly two weeks for unknown reasons. Pneumonia and distempter were both mentioned. His white blood cell count was off and there was fluid in the lungs. Once better, he was discharged to me a few days ago, and he is as energetic as he was when I first rescued him. The total bill was well over $2500; I would like to thank the many of you who contributed towards his medical costs.
PEPPINO is now with his foster mom @ebwash and he is ready for a forever home. He is young, not more than a year old. At this age I am okay with adopting him out as a single as long as the home has a lot of activity. Anyone home most of the day would also be good for him as he is very playful. When he is tired he will sleep in the bed with his human too. If you're interested in adopting PEPPINO please send me a message. Thanks guys.
LES rescues Amber and Leaf are in a small crate in a bathroom, literally on top of each other! An experienced #foster is needed so they can get out of the bathroom and interact with people more regularly. They are getting more relaxed every day. And are actually very sweet!! I pet them today. And they both lick their food first before they eat it...so cute! They’re only about a year old, and are not kittens. So they will need some work. Someone patient, loving and compassionate out there who can give them a chance??? #savinglives#rescuecat#cat#cats#catsagram#catsofinstagram#catlover#animallover#adoptdontshop#nyc#harlem#les
Safety first!! ⛑
We had fun saving these mannequins lives this morning at RESTART A HEART Day at the Manly Surf Club to raise awareness on Saving Lives across Australia. 💖
Pumping to the beat of the Bee Gees (something I never knew!) and chatting to some our amazing paramedics and public service officers (swipe to see these heros) made me think about how little I really knew about "What To Do!" when an emergency arises. 🙇♀️ Have you done a first aid / CPR course? Or have a defib kind of device in your home/office/club? Check out Heart Safe Australia for more info! #HeartSafeAustralia#RestartaHeartDay#SavingLives#manlybeach#myparadise

Looking for a beginning of the week pick me up? Is there anything sweeter than a girl and her new best friend?! Look at the sheer joy in her face. We are so very pleased to announce that Mamacita has found her furrever home!
Mamacita, a two year old tabby female came to us as a mama kitty who was nursing six baby kittens. Those sweet babies quickly found their furrever homes while Mamacita patiently waited for the right family to come along. During her stay in foster care, Mamacita would take a break from her kittens by sneaking out of the foster room. Eventually she would be found hanging out with the resident dog.
Enter a family with two dogs looking for a cat who liked dogs. The purrfect match was found! They fell in love with her sweet disposition and gorgeous green eyes. We are so happy that Mamacita has finally found her furrever home. Happy tails sweet lady! Come find your new best friend at All About Cats!
Med student or sunscreen police? Same thing🌞👮🏻♀️

⬅️Swipe to Port ⬅️❄️Cold water boating requires being prepared for an unexpected immersion, so testing our dry suits is a team priority.🧤You won’t likely have a dry suit, but if you’re a cold water boater, here’s some fashion tips that could save your life:
🧣Always wear layers, and have a spare set of clothes. The weather can change suddenly, even if the air feels warm.
🧣Avoid wearing cotton. Cotton’s nickname is “death cloth” because it traps water inside its fibres and and takes a long time to dry out. Wear wool, polyester, or polypropylene layers; these fabrics hold body heat better than cotton.
🧣Your inner, base layer wicks away moisture from the skin—think thermal underwear and wool socks.
🧣Your mid-layer is the buffer between warm skin and cold air. It insulates you from the cold. Think breathable fabrics like a compact fleece.
🧣Your outer layer is windproof and waterproof, and includes your hood, collar, and good quality gloves. 🧣Finally, your PFD (personal flotation device) is the ultimate fashion statement—wear it with pride and stay alive!
❄️As the saying goes, dress for the water, not the weather.🧤With Crew Rose Bartman, Coxswain Nic Futter, and Unit Leader/Coxswain Paula FitzZaland #rcmsar#savinglives#onthewater

END OF AN ERA FOR NICKO!
After 38 years as an Aircrew Officer on our region’s Westpac #RescueHelicopter , Graham Nickisson will fly his last mission this week. Nickisson joined the Service as a 17 year old in 1981 and has been flying emergency response missions ever since. He has amassed an incredible 7,100 flying hours, including over 400 hours in night vision goggles and has been in control of 2,639 winching operations. “We believe he is the longest serving Aircrew Officer on any civilian aeromedical helicopter in Australia. But more important than the facts and figures is the way he’s gone about his work. Nicko has always gone above and beyond and this has made him one of the most loved characters in our Service,” said CEO Richard Jones OAM.
After flying his last mission, Nickisson will transition to a new role that supports safety systems, communication and community engagement. #ThankYou#SavingLives#Aircrew#HereForYou
