Most of my blog posts have been about working in the boarding area in my clinic, because, in all honesty, I’d much rather talk about the amazing animals I get to see rather than the multitudes of people I have to deal with. But, working at a vet hospital has one amazing benefit (well, two if you count seeing so many animals everyday). I get to be in close contact with eight very talented veterinarians every day. That is every pairing veterinarian’s dream!
I have been able to witness/hear some amazing things. I have seen two surgeries by our head vet ( my personal favorite vet), a pyo and a neuter, as well as hearing some amazing stories and facts that every pre vet student should know. Working here this summer has prepared me more to be a veterinarian than any of the classes I took this past year could have.
My love for animals and my passion to serve them has only continued to increase since working here. It’s as if I have two sets of eyes now. One set I wear when I am at home or just out and about. The other set I wear when I am at work with all of these animals or basically anywhere that has animals. I am always so aware of them now. Well, I guess I should say that I am even MORE aware of them now. Who knew that could happen? Everyone who knows me knows that I have had a fire in my heart for animals since I came home from the hospital my first day in this world and was greeted by two crazy, beautiful, black Labrador retrievers. My passion for animals hasn’t stopped since.
