Bonus Tech Tips (January 2009)

    At the end of a pet's annual exam, we send home a prepaid fecal container for the owner to collect a fecal sample from the pet and send it back. This reminds the owner to return the sample and makes it easier and less messy for us to submit the sample to a laboratory.

    After many unsuccessful attempts to keep the permanent marker lines on our white board from erasing, I came up with a solution. I purchased black pin-stripe tape usually used for cars and available at most automotive stores and used it to create lines. The tape is easily removable and solves the problem of erasing the black permanent marker by writing over it with a dry-erase marker. Now our white board is neat and orderly!

    We use old administration/drip set tubing to tie endotracheal tubes in place. It is very convenient because, depending on the size of the animal, you can cut the tubing to different lengths.
