Tech Tips

    Keeping Supplies Organized

    To keep our supply drawers neat, we apply adhesive Velcro to the bottoms of plastic containers and to their places in the drawers. This keeps the containers from shifting when the drawers are opened and closed. Velcro also works well for hanging thyroid shields and gloves in our radiography room.

    Reusing Bubble Wrap

    When receiving orders from suppliers, we save all bubble wrap for packaging outgoing laboratory samples.

    Keeping Boarded Dogs Occupied

    To help keep boarded dogs occupied, we put a small amount of wet dog food in a toy that holds treats and then freeze it. This frozen toy treat requires a lot of licking, helping to keep these dogs occupied a couple of times a day.
