March 21, 2008: Holy Cow

Actually it's not Holy Cow, it's Holey Cow.
Well technically it's fistulated cows.
Cows that have had a fistula (porthole) surgically installed, so researchers, and lurkers, can see the digestion process in one of the cows 4 stomachs.
No, it doesn't hurt them and in reality, in exchange for this indignity, they lead long and pampered lives.

Having witnessed this several times during my misspent youth, I can personally attest, it smells much worse inside the cow than it does when it comes out the back end.

...cow tipping, then?



Griff  Friday Mar 21 06:33 AM

So how much better trained is a veterinary than a people doc?

Michigan State (among others maybe) had a cow with a glass bubble for a belly.



DucksNuts  Friday Mar 21 06:52 AM

Ohhh, pierced bloated cow is the worse smell ever. It stays in your nostril for days.

Whodathunk grass could smell that bad.



sweetwater  Friday Mar 21 08:42 AM

i would be easy for these cows to diet. it must be easier if they can, literally, watch what they eat.

for me, the smell would be sufficient.

Being a DVM is just as, if not more complicated then being an MD since you have to absolutely KNOW all aspects of total health. Unlike most human medical professions where you can specialize in one particular area.


wolf  Saturday Mar 22 12:56 PM

One of our docs thinks vets are much better trained that MDs, at least as diagnosticians ... for the most part, a vet's patient can't tell him where it hurts or described symptoms.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Mar 22 12:57 PM

Around here, a lot of DVMs limit their practice to certain types of critters, usually ones kept as household pets. If you have an exotic or large animal, they refer you to another vet, or a University animal hospital.

But you're right, val5150, in that the animals they do treat, they have to know everything about them. Everything about a dog is a lot different than everything about a turtle or parakeet. That's a lot of learning!



Kasszia  Sunday Mar 23 07:07 PM

Did anyone watch the video? The hole leaks. Yuck. What about flies getting in there? Does the 'porthole' have a lid?



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Mar 23 08:20 PM

Yes, they have lids, removed for pictures.

Oh, and welcome to the Cellar, Kasszia.



monster  Monday Mar 24 08:48 AM

Looks like a washing machine. Can't wait for the spin cycle....



Kasszia  Monday Mar 24 06:07 PM

Thanks!

Thank you Bruce. I've been lurking for better part of a month now.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Mar 25 01:45 AM

Only the first post feels perverted, smooth sailing from here on.

Doesn't hurt the cows? I don't think they can really say that... after all, the cow can't tell them one way or the other. It looks extremely cruel to me. Poor cows. And they don't look very pampered to me...


xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Apr 3 10:13 AM

Unpampered cow.



toranokaze  Thursday Apr 3 10:42 AM

Both look tasty

I've seen lots of animals express quite loudly and violently that they are in pain. This is why they have to confine them very tightly for other procedures, like artificial insemination.


BigV  Thursday Apr 3 06:07 PM

...if it hurts, you're not doing it right...

When I had my cows inseminated, I just held them by the halter and got drooled on, while the guy with a rubber glove up to his shoulder, did his thing.
Yeah, they made cow eyes at me too.
