This past weekend I finished my very first two-week-long clinical rotation as a 4th year vet student: equine primary care! It was a great learning experience filled with lots of dental floats, vaccinations, blood draws, physical exams, seeing newborn foals, & even some emergency calls. I learned SO much & I felt like my extremely difficult didactic years in the classroom were worth it to get to see & help with real, hands-on medicine finally. I felt more confident that I am meant to be here than I have the entire past three years in vet school, so for all the younger vet students out there who struggle with grades in classes, just know clinics are a WHOLE different ball game. If I can do it, you can do it too, I promise.
Special thanks to Brooke for letting me have some pics of me floating teeth on her beautiful Haflinger mare! Can’t say Fancy was quite as thrilled as I was for her appointment. 😁
