We all know that when Allāh created us, He did so giving us a specific mission in life:
“And I (Allāh) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone).” [Quran 51:56]
He then told us how we should fulfill this mission, through a range of activities that He said are either Obligatory, Recommended or Permissible. And having these rulings attached to tasks makes it easy for us to choose which activities to give priority to over others.
What can we do about all the other tasks that are permissible to us, but don’t have a specific religious ruling attached to them? We need another model for these and we can use man-made models that follow the same principles.

T-bacteriophages on E.coli. 
Coloured Transmission Electron Micrograph (TEM) of T-bacteriophage viruses attacking a bacterial cell of Escherichia coli. Seven virus particles are seen (blue), each with a head and a tail. Four of these are “sitting” on the brown bacterial cell and small blue “tails” of genetic material (DNA) are seen being injected into the bacterium. T-bacterio- phages are parasites of bacterial cells. The virus attaches itself to the cell’s wall and, using it’s tail as a syringe, injects it’s own DNA into the bacterium. The virus DNA then takes over the bacterial cell, forcing it to produce more viruses. Magnification: x63,000 at 5x7cm size.

Vets work on tarantulas? Some do! And not just tarantulas but many other invertebrate species. I did my grand rounds presentation on basic tarantula medicine and there is actually quite a bit you can do medically.
Tarantulas can be anesthetized just like any other animal using gas anesthesia. Usually they are placed in a container and the gas is pumped in and when they can no longer right themselves you know they are “under” enough. To maintain a tarantula under anesthesia you just place their opisthosoma inside a mask and do your procedure. Monitoring them can be difficult, sometimes you can get a heart rate using doppler but they often develop asystole making monitoring useless. 
Dehydrated animals can sometimes be placed in a shallow water dish and they will drink but those that are very dry can have 0.9% saline or a crystalloid fluid injected into their hearts or leg joints. All needle sticks have to be sealed with cyanoacrylate glue and will not actually be fixed until the next shed. The glue can also be used to close up injuries and leg fractures.
If you own a tarantula or other invert call your vet and ask if they would be willing to see it. Many will not be comfortable and might be able to send you to someone else. Hopefully as these animals become more popular as pets more vets will develop an interest in seeing them.

No idea what happened to this duck. Someone found him hanging out at a lake and decided to bring him in. The beak injury looked old and he was very underweight so probably had not been able to eat for quite some time. Poor guy was put to sleep because there was just nothing we could do for him. Interesting injury though, would be cool to find out what exactly happened.

Snakes That Can See Without Eyes

by Andrew Durso

Pit vipers have an amazing and little-known ability to see infrared light. They do this by means of their eponymous pits, which are essentially a second pair of eyes located in the loreal region of their face, between the normal (visible light or “lateral”) eye and the nostril. Some snakes, such as Emerald Tree Boas (Corallus caninus), have up to forty pits, meaning that in effect they have forty-two ‘eyes’: two lateral eyes and forty infrared eyes.

Pit vipers have just two, but these organs are among the most exquisitely sensitive sensory organs in the animal kingdom. Other animals can also see wavelengths outside of the spectrum of light visible to humans. For example, bees and many birds can see ultraviolet wavelengths, and the complex eyes of mantis shrimp possess at least 16 different photoreceptor types, allowing them to see visible and ultraviolet light with fine sensitivity, as well as polarized light, thought to allows them to see their transparent prey…
