Yep, I have. While working as a summer temp at a vet clinic, I did indeed violate the posterior of an animal in the name of determining what species (if applicable) of internal parasite it carried, if there were traces of occult blood and other assorted poo-checking goodness.
I’m not proud.
But I just earned another badge! Whoot!
Can we send this one to Mike “Dirty Jobs” Rowe?
Thanks to the A&P 2 fetal pig dissection, I qualify for yet another badge.
I’ve stuck a thermometer up the butt of a treefrog, so yeah.
How else am I supposed to take a mouse’s temperature?
