bloody mess

Yes, I'm speaking of myself. I'm at the vet clinic today, and the second room we had was two chihuahuas for "the works." The first one went like clockwork. The second one, after we get it to the back starts acting all a fool. We put on the party hat (aka: muzzle), got the nails trimmed, got the fecal sample, and then tried to get blood. HAHAHAHAHA!!! Little thing wouldn't quit squirming. We had to have the vet come out and take the sample. I felt like a worthless vet tech, I can tell you that. Anyway, during all the squirming and general hyperactivity, she split one of her toenails and got streaks of blood all over my nice pretty white shirt. Ergo, I'm a bloody mess. Thank goodness for H2O2--I was able to clean most of it up. Needless to say, she was very happy to be free from us and back with mom and dad.

Well, at least it wasn't a boring day! You always have such interesting jobs. And my job is so tedious. Probably because I could never do the cool things you do.

So, for work, non-biology/chemistry oriented folks...what is H202?? Crazy chihuahuas!!! Crazy vet for wanting his employees to wear white shirts..honestly! That makes about as much sense as nurses having to wear white scrubs( which @ Baylor Irving, they do!!)

H2O2=hydrogen peroxide
works well at removing blood stains (or at least making them not look so bloody)

See, I should have known that was hydrogen peroxide you'd been referring to. I've always found that my tide stick to go works well. If I'm at home and able to clean the stain, I've found that pine sol and a q-tip are quite wonderful at removing stains! Plus they don't have that obnoxious billy mays as the spokesperson.
