Been a while...

Kinda forgot about this thing for a bit. Rotations definitely get in the way sometimes!

Speaking of them, they've been pretty good. SA surgery was great and went really quickly. Farm animal rotation has been great, minus the fact that I've had gastritis for the past week which has made functioning/eating/everything difficult. But I made it!

Next stop: Scotland. Mixed animal practice. Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Good times.


  1. Hi!! I love your blog!!! I am a high-schooler in the US and want to apply to the RVC after high school...Do you have any advice??? Thanks :)

  2. My advice is to make sure it's what you really really want. As in, you cannot imagine yourself doing anything else. Not to discourage you, but the profession is in a little bit of turmoil right now; lots of graduates flooding the market where there isn't a whole lot of jobs. You should join Student Doctor Network and go to the Pre-Vet forum to get an idea of what RVC is looking for. Unfortunately I don't know much about applying from high school (but I would imagine it's pretty rigorous what they want you to do).

    But to level with you: don't do it. I'm not saying don't go for your dream of being a vet, but don't go straight from high school. My 4 years at college were fabulous and I learned so much about myself as a student and as a person. I met a lot of my best friends there.


    If it's what you really really REALLY REALLY (and I mean really) want, then do it. Don't let anyone try to dissuade you (especially me; you have to remember I'm coming to the end of my degree and I can be a little bit tired/grumpy/disgruntled).
