Today... Tuesday the twenty-second of june I, Jessi, followed a vetrinarian for a day.
The day started out with me driving 45-50min to a vet. I could probably have asked a closer vet but since this was a country vet I got to see both the small animals (cats, dogs) and the big (cows) So I figure that's the best way to start off.
After all those surgeries I watched it was lunch time, so everybody sat in the break room and made jokes about vet things I don't understand, talked about houses, building houses, falling apart houses, houses with basements, houses in tornados, Mcdonalds, the shooting in fargo, upcoming vacations... ect.

The vet hospital that I went to has a connecting humane society where I got to feed the dogs. After I fed the dogs I played with a LOT of kittens and cats. I played with two, three legged cats one of which was blind, and then with three kittens who were very young. I played with a ton of perfectly healthy cats also.
After that it was time to go home. I hope to go back on a day when it is strictly appointments, and might ask to go on a day when they are working with the larger animals more because I am interested to see how they go about examining an animal that can seriously injure them just by stepping the wrong way.
Overall I think it was a great experience and I have not checked Vetrinarian off my possible list of careers (which is short because I hate a lot of things.)
P.S. Charlie's nose was like attached to my leg when I got home. I might have to shower before I come home next time because I could not get away from my dog.
