How to tell which nest belongs to which insect. Yellow jackets (which are wasps) often build nests covered with a paper-like β€œenvelope” with just one opening (shown with @thevegasvet above). Paper wasps build nests of papery chewed wood pulp. Honeybees make nests out of wax; If you want this nest off your property, the University of California’s Integrated Pest Management Program insists on you calling a beekeeper to see if the bees can be relocated! 🌳🐝🐝🐝 β€’

Today we celebrate Gorgeous Grandma Day! This is @thevegasvet with his Great Grandma. She was born somewhere between 1876 and 1878. When she passed, she was around 110 to 112 years of age. Apparently I would let her hug me for a very brief moment before squirming out of her arms. Hug a Grandma today (your own ideally or someone else's if they approve) !!! πŸ‘΅πŸ»πŸ’žπŸ‘¦πŸ»

Interesting facts regarding Harbor Seals according to Sea World: They live 25 to 30 years! Unlike Sea Lions, which tend to hang out in tight groups, Harbor Seals will prefer to be solitary. Harbor seals can remain submerged for up to 28 minutes and dive to depths of 90 meters (295 feet)! Mother's milk contains as much as 45% milk fat, enabling the pup (baby seal) to more than double its weight by the time it's weaned (at 4 to 6 weeks of age). 😲🌊

Interesting facts regarding Sea Lions according to the San Diego Zoo: Gestation (the period of time in which they are pregnant until they give birth) can range from 8 to 18 months. Females can weigh as much as 600 pounds whereas males can weigh as much as 2,200 pounds! A group of sea lions in the water is called a β€œraft”. 🌊🐚🐟

This is a Red Ruffed Lemur (Varecia rubra). Did you know that monkeys can be classified as either New Wold or Old World monkeys? New World monkeys are characterized by flatter noses, side-facing nostrils, nostrils that sit farther apart, three premolar teeth, non-opposable thumbs, and most have prehensile tails. The Old World monkeys are characterized by down facing noses, noses that open downward or forward and have nostrils that are closer together, two premolar teeth, opposable thumbs, and have shorter, non-grasping tails. The New World monkeys are said to inhabit the Americas whereas the Old World monkeys inhabit Africa and Asia. πŸŒ΄πŸ΅πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™ŠπŸ’

This is a Golden Lion Tamarin (Leontopithecus rosalia). Today we review some differences between monkeys and apes! Monkeys usually have tails whereas no apes do. Apes tend to be larger, tend to have larger brains (relative to their body size), and tend to have more advanced cognitive and language skills than monkeys. Apes have a more upright body posture and are often able to walk on their two hind legs whereas monkeys walk on all fours. Monkeys tend to run atop branches while apes tend to swing from trees. Apes rely more on vision than smell. Monkeys tend to have longer noses than monkeys because of this last fact. πŸ΅πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™ŠπŸ’πŸ’›

Tonight we take a break from vet med and celebrate Moon Day! The moon is roughly 4.5 billion years old, thought to have formed shortly after the earth after earth collided with another astronomical body. Interesting facts: The moons distance from the earth is slowly increasing and The Moon makes a complete orbit around Earth with respect to the fixed stars about once every 27.3 to 29.5 days! πŸŒœπŸŒ’πŸŒ•πŸŒšβœ¨

This is a 1 year old Mix breed dog that went missing and then returned to the owner with a right comminuted, open, mid-diaphyseal radius-ulna fracture. Challenges faced with radius/ulna fractures in small or toy breed dogs are related to their decreased vascular density and morphologic differences Surgical fixation is indicated in virtually every radius-ulna fracture case. In fact, 85% of patients treated with external coaptation (bandage placement) alone result in maligned bone segments and fracture nonunion. πŸ•πŸ©πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βš•οΈπŸ’Š

Nothing is better than making new friends at the dog park on a beautiful day! Be sure to keep your pets on a short leash, as not every dog out there is a dog-lover! Also, for medical and legal reasons, stay up-to-date on vaccinations, especially the rabies vaccine. These under-rated precautions can keep you safe and worry-free while you mingle with fellow canines. πŸΎπŸ•πŸ©πŸŽΎ photo courtesy of @kdl17 β€’

This is a 3 year old Mix breed dog who we applied hobbles to. Hobbles are bandages that are anchored to the tarsi, setting the space between the pelvic limbs to a desired length. We use them to prevent pelvic limb splaying and coxofemoral joint (hip) abduction. The most common indication is after treatment for a caudoventral coxofemoral joint luxation, a luxation direction that only occurs in 5% of all canine hip luxations. πŸ•πŸ©πŸ‘©πŸ»β€βš•οΈ

This patient is a 7 year old Rottweiler who spontaneously fractured his right femur while chasing a cat. Compare the bone quality of the right femur to the left. The radiographs shown of the right femur are highly suspicious for bone cancer, the most common of which is osteosarcoma (OSA). OSA is the most common reported canine primary appendicular (bones that make up the appendages) bone tumor, making up 80 to 85% of all primary dog skeletal tumors and 5% of all dog neoplasms. πŸ˜•πŸ‘©πŸ»β€βš•οΈπŸ©πŸΎπŸ’»
