Celebrating Memorial Day with your pets.
Memorial Day weekend is a great opportunity to spend time with family, outdoors, enjoying the unofficial start of summer. But it is important to keep your pets safety in mind at all times. Below are a few tips to help you and your family get through the weekend safely while having fun!
• Play it safe with food – don’t feed table scraps as some may be toxic to your pets. And keep alcoholic beverages away!
•Swimming can be a fun past time, but not all pets are good swimmers. Keep an eye on them and no gulping chemically cleaned pool water.
•Only use sunscreen and insect repellent designed for animals. Some we use could be dangerous to our pets.
•Make sure there is plenty of shade for your pet if celebrating outdoors. And always have a full water bowl available.
•Make sure gates and doors are kept closed at all times. Many pets go missing during holiday weekends because they are either anxious from all the activity or they are given an opportunity to wander during the chaos.
•Fireworks can be scary (and dangerous) for some … keep your pet indoors and safe if fireworks are being used.
Have a Happy and Safe Memorial Holiday! Steel City will be open should you need emergency vet care!
This weekend we celebrate the Front Desk Rockstars, the Chaos Coordinators, the Lobby Guardians, the Multitasking Magicians, the Unsung Healthcare Heroes we know and love as Veterinary Receptionists. We, here at Steel City, could not make it without ours! 📞🖤🐾

Warning, this post is packed with emotion but is heavily edited and excludes person specific details beyond myself:
I have worked strictly in emergency related veterinary medicine for awhile now. It is my passion and there is not a day that goes by that there aren’t both fun and difficult moments and cases. There are a million opportunities to leave good and bad rants on private and social media about the experiences in a days work, as I’m sure there are in many fields. As some of you may know, National Veterinary Technician Week just ended Saturday. That week was just capped by the constant reminder that there are many people out there who don’t really understand veterinary medicine and don’t have to, yet it seems they frequently forget that the true veterinary professionals have 2-12+ yr degrees but insist that Dr. Google or their friend who was a breeder once knows best! Also, NO ONE IN VETERINARY MEDICINE IS JUST HANGING OUT TRYING TO TAKE YOUR MONEY! It turns out medicine and supplies cost money! Employing a vet costs money! Why? Because they are actually doctors!!! Employing a technician cost money! Why? Because they are actually schooled/trained to take care of the situations given to them. We aren’t government funded. Stop asking for everything to be free. So many things to be said right now but my deepest sympathy and acknowledgment goes out to my Techs. I am a veterinary technician and the hospital admin of my emergency clinic. I just want to say thank you to my techs and all vet techs out there in honor of last week for being strong enough to swallow the pill of the constant stress, misunderstanding of clients, difficult cases, long nights, passion fatigue, all the gross things, the nights you were cussed out simply because you were the first person that reached out to help out a distraught human being before they could find reason when they were dealing with a difficult situation, thank you for being skilled enough to get an IV CATHETER in that seizing neonate, thank you for decompressing the GDV, thank you for making all the best well-being calls for the mommas and babies involved in a dystocia or C-sec, thank you for transfusing the deathly anemic patient, thank you for intubating providing oxygen to the airway obstructed Patient, thank you for a million things, Thank you,... for knowing what the heck you are doing. But also... to those fur baby owners who are patient even when they don’t understand and to those that do and have established a verbal pat on the back to my staff.. much appreciated. Some days, it’s you who boost our moral for the day. My hatred for media is strongest when it comes to reviews.
The truth, good or bad is just fine in my book, but it’s insane that 99% of the time, the bad reviews (In many fields and other companies as well), all come from a lack of explaining or elaborating the truth. Lies for attention should be a crime. Thank you
I am so blessed to have such a devoted group of hard working, talented, dedicated, charismatic, and compassionate techs/nurses care for patients here at SCEV. You are family and are truly appreciated by myself and thousands of others you have impacted.
Every clinic has its own style. It’s no news that ours is unique. But what the world should understand about this team of techs is that they don’t just show up for just another at day their job. They show up and invest another minute, another hour, another day, with their skills and knowledge around the clock in efforts to make a difference in their patients’ lives, quite literally. Its a whole new level of literally contributingt their blood, sweat and glory to this business that is a family to us all. A standing ovation to you because of that moment you: threw out your back rushing an animal half your weight to the table for CPR because that was it’s last chance; that moment you had thick, pungent fluid draining down your arms while helping that 2 minute old pup breathe for the first time; the moment you were on the longest shift ever and could hardly remember your first name, but you pushed and helped with one more surgery because that bloat wouldn’t have made it ‘til morning. No words will ever amount to the emotions you may feel when you are at your hardest trials, but to the technicians that make Steel City Emergency Vets… Thank you. You truly are Number 1.
Happy National Veterinary Tech Week! 2020 has been crazy and our team has been amazing! Thank you to each and every one of you for all that you do! This week is for you!
