Vet Ranch is a YouTube Channel created by Dr. Matt Carriker in 2014. They help homeless animals in need of medical attention. Many are pulled from a euthanasia list by a rescue and then brought to Vet Ranch.
They record the animal and their injuries prior to surgery, during the surgery, (a HUGE learning experience) when they're in recovery afterwards, and later when they're all healed up.
This IS the basis and the point of the channel. They get donations from their viewers. It's very interesting, and is incredible for little veterinarians in the making. My 10 year old girl LOVES the show, and has learned a lot about animal health, and the different surgeries. She's not offended by the graphic nature of the surgeries. She wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up.
YouTube is saying that they now need to censor the videos so that most can't even be seen. They stand to lose a lot with this.
I say, if you are sickened by something graphic, don't watch it. Google photos of animals in recovery after surgery. Seeing it is a choice.
Please don't make Vet Ranch censor their videos. Recommend to viewers that they not watch the videos if they're squeamish. Warn them that it's surgery, and it's going to be graphic.
Here is an example of how it is now: https://youtu.be/vyZ8G9XMbqw
