Talk about something you love. It can be anything

Oh gosh… What do I want to talk about? Ah… how about vet med?


I have a feeling you all know that I love animals. Like a lot. I grew up with dogs and a cat and have had them my entire life. They all hold special places in my heart and I have fond memories with every single one of them. I always was outside at my grandparents’ house chasing down frogs and toads and watching deer walk through their yard. I went horse riding a few times and marveled at how large and gentle they were. I remember back to when I was three or four years old and standing on my toes to look over the exam room table at our family veterinarian to watch him look our dogs over. And that’s when I realized I wanted to be a vet.

I love all of the innovations that have come to vet med thanks to human medicine, as well as things we’ve found and started ourselves. I love the passion involved in research and clinical treatment, and how much the field has changed in the last 50 years. We know more about our domestic animals than we ever did, and there is still so much to learn.

Okay so one of the things I absolutely love about veterinary medicine are the people. So many people that go into the profession have 1) a love for animals, 2) ridiculously brilliant minds, and 3) innovative thoughts and ideas, all of which center around the budget of a pet’s owner. The thing I love about the last point is the fact that I’ve seen so many clinicians bend over backwards and come up with something that’s never been done or thought of before and have it work perfectly when a client comes in with $200 dollars in their pocket. I love the compassion in this field and how, even though it hurts their wallets and they make nothing, clinicians will sweep charges under the rug or severely discount it and give a patient a treatment their owner can’t otherwise afford. I love the passion and the compassion. 

I feel like I’m rambling, but you asked me to talk about something I loved and this is definitely something! Lol. I just love the people and the pets I can interact with. I love being able to fix an innocent soul with my hands and do things that will make the human-animal bond stronger. I don’t know I’m not making sense but I just love it! I could go on forever but I can already tell that there is no direction to this and that I’m talking in circles, so I’m going to cut it there! 

we were all late nights, long talks,
our hearts so full of everything we
thought it would kill us someday
but we never broke, only grew.

we were missed curfews, tired eyes
drinking in sunrises, coasting
80 miles an hour down the back roads
going anywhere but home.

we were lipstick stains on
each other’s collarbones. no matter
how much it hurt, we were
always coming back for more.

we were endless summer, baby,
all heat and ache and want. we were
stars so bright they hurt your eyes,
so bright you couldn’t look away.

we were beautiful. we were young.
we loved each other breathlessly, deathlessly.
we had the whole damn world clenched
in our fists. we never let anything go.
