Twelve Degrees North

Ask me anything   Veterinary student at Saint George's University in Grenada.

    Everyone loves midterms!

    Stress induced candy eating. (Yes, all the candy in the grocery store was bought. It was a weak moment.) I now understand the hatred of horses that develops in your third year. I am beginning to believe horses would be near extinction without human intervention. So many ways to injure those Itty bitty twigs they call legs and so few ways we can successfully put them back together.

    third year is suppose to be fun

    rectal palpations, our first solo surgeries, rotations with actual patients in the animal hospital and getting to choose our clinical year. 

    unfortunately all these things plus anvery ugly large animal surgery exam fell in one week for me. I am also trying to plan a rabies vaccination clinic for this Saturday for the local community and helping with a Rabies Gala for Sunday night. 

    Did I forget to mention midterms start next friday?

    I need a time turner. 

    I am truly enjoying third year so far i just wish I had more time to appreciate it. 

    Also World Rabies Day is Sept 28th!!!

    At the moment the ranking is

    1. Ohio state
    2. North Carolina state
    3. University of Florida??

    I have family I can live with at OSU who would help me take care my pets. I like their program (limited exotics? SIGN ME UP! ) I love the city of Columbus. It would be nice to return to my alma mater. First round selections occur tomorrow!

    I really should be studying for horse surgery test tomorrow.

    I really considered TAMU but they said they were only taking January terms since the clinic start date did not coincide with when I finish here at SGU.

    I miss Syllabus week!

    I started my third year of vet school last Monday. Our class is already worked in the small animal clinic, palpated a fake cow and intubated and placed catheters on fake dogs. 

    The second week of September will be real animals.

    Sept 9th is my first canine castration!

    Sept 10th is my first rectal palpation of a cow.

    This all came out of one itty bitty puppy.  

    Truly loving shelter medicine.  Getting to work with every breed from chihuahuas to Irish Wolfhound (Seriously the biggest dog!!) I am beginning to think cats come in every color under the sun. We have the post-easter bunnies start to be surrendered.
