Learning about the behavior aspects of an animal intrigues me like no other - the way they move, why they do things that they do, their emotions, all of it. I want to gain knowledge on the medical aspects of being a Veterinarian so I can do my part in this world and help and this program will definitely help as a start with achieving my goal to work with wildlife. I’m fully aware this program needs people who are ready to put all their time and effort into learning and I am capable of doing so. As stated in my recommendations: I am eager to learn and not afraid to ask questions, ready for any challenge that comes my way, and I don’t let stressors get in my way! I hope to bring my knowledge, ambition, and passion as beneficial to the veterinary and animal community down the road and I thank you for this
As a student of the veterinary science program at CSU will undergo specialist training in veterinary science and its associated disciplines, I can
The work environment in Vet Tech is stressful. In a Vet clinic, illnesses and injuries are more common in Vet Tech. One has to be able to handle being kicked, bitten, scratched, etc when holding, cleaning, or restraining an animal. Try to avoid getting injuries while working in a Vet. Watch for body language in an animal and have proper restraint techniques. To avoid illnesses, the Vet Tech should follow safety procedures. Illnesses can be caused by these things since they would be around them most of the time; Needles, bodily fluids, radiation and other potentially hazardous substances. (“How to Become a Vet Tech”).
Since this is something I enjoy to do I would like to learn more about animals than I may not learn from the career center. Over the summer I worked at a dog kennel and it was ok something I wasn’t crazy about because I liked the little dogs mostly rather than the big dogs. I’m more comfortable at the career center because i’ve been there so many times and with the dog place I wasn’t there but only once. So pretty much I knew the teachers there in the animal care class. But yes I did love spending time with the animals because dogs are cute and at the career center I love petting the animals because some of them are really friendly. I really get along with the animals there at the career center because I basically know what to do there. All they had at the dog kennel was dog’s and they have so many pets at the career center from dogs to medium to small animals. They also even have reptiles which are pretty cool animals. They had a grooming station at the dog kennel a small one wasn’t very big but at the career center had bigger grooming stations. They also had laundry at the dog kennel which the animal care class has there
This year I got a chance to be on a team of four undergraduate students to represent UBC at Intercollegiate Animal Welfare Competition at Ohio State University. The competition is in November and we are raising funds to help us get there.
I will make sure that the animals and the clients get the kind of care
This is my first year showing an animal at the fair ,but I am excited to continue growing with the many experiences to come in the following years. I have gained knowledge from how to properly fit and groom in addition to learning about responsibility, time management, public speaking, and keeping records of my expenses , hours and income. On top of that, I also learned volumes about how the FFA works and what its real purpose is. The FFA isn’t
The American Board of Veterinary Practitioners, American College of Poultry Veterinarians, the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine, and the American College of Zoological Medicine are all able to certify veterinarians. However, certification is not required, unlike licensing. Licensing, including the D.V.M., can be obtained from the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE), which is organized by the National Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners. Every state varies in their ruling towards a person applying to take the NAVLE. Many states have additional requirements for veterinarian licensing whether it is for an exotic or companion veterinarian.
Although this statement is completely true, the treatment of dogs is not all that vets do. Cats, cows, parrots, and horses are just a few of the many other animals that veterinarians help. As you could probably guess, the profession of being a vet requires many years of education, being that the job requires you to have a good background knowledge of issues that animals may have. In this essay, I’m going to walk you through my educational path to accomplish my goal of becoming a Veterinarian.
During summer 2016 Dominique was chosen to attend Tuskegee University’s highly selective Vet Step II program; the one week residential program for high school students serves as an introduction to veterinary medicine. Students were required to attend classes from 8:00a to 8:00p Monday through Thursday, they participated in hands-on activities and laboratory exercises, and were placed in groups of 4 to prepare power point presentations which were presented to their parents/families during an award ceremony at the end of the weeklong event. Prior to the trip, Dominique had only been out of state with her elementary classmates for their 6th grade educational field and with her Archer classmates during the NOLS outdoor educational trip in 7th
I hope this will allow animals to get the right homes and this will impact me in an emotional way and another way would be when I take them to the retirement homes this will help the elderly feel happy and at home. One problem I will for sure encounter is I will have to miss work sometimes. The only way I could do this is talking to my boss and not working one day a week so I can dedicate that day to my volunteer work.I will accomplish this by using my resources with the Humane Society the internet, and my mother will teach me how to
Barbara Natterson-Horowitz gave a TEDMED speech in September of 2014 entitled What Veterinarians Know That Doctors Don’t. Dr. Natterson-Horowitz is a professor of Medicine at UCLA Medical School in the Division of Cardiology. Additionally, she is an advocate of zoobiquity, or the connection of animal and human health. Her speech describes how a phone call introduced her to the world of veterinary medicine and, consequently, led her to promote the concept of physicians and veterinarians working together to further their understanding of medicine and health. In the speech, she provides examples of various instances where human doctors applied animal doctor knowledge to human patients and where animal doctors had the answers human doctors had
Veterinarians are people who care for the health of animals and work to improve public health. Veterinarians can go into different kinds of veterinary practices. They can go into specific animal categories and take care of huge animals like elephants or they can take care of small animals like hamsters. It all depends on what they like best and feel comfortable with. All of them have at least one thing in common and that is their love for animals. Veterinarians are a lot like doctors only they do various things with animals, not people. Veterinarians diagnose and treat diseases and dysfunctions of animals. Specifically, they care for the health of pets, livestock, and animals in zoos, racetracks, and laboratories. Some veterinarians use their
Since as far back as I can remember, I have loved animals; especially cats and dogs. At first, I wanted to work as a cashier at Petsmart. As I aged, I realized it’s very difficult to make a good living as a cashier anywhere. I set my sights a little bit higher: Becoming a veterinarian. Ever since I made this decision in elementary school, I have worked exceptionally hard to achieve this goal. I recently graduated high school as a valedictorian in a class of nearly 400. Through my senior year of high school, I shadowed at my local veterinary clinic to better understand what I will be doing for the rest of my life. The experience just made me even surer that helping animals is definitely what I want to do for my career.
My primary motivation to become a registered veterinary technician is to learn and do more in the field of animal care. My experience working directly with animals has been incredibly rewarding. More than anything, it has shown me how important attention to detail and the most basic tasks can be. I have developed a healthy respect for the often tedious and demanding labor that is required to keep animals healthy and happy and I am quite comfortable taking on these duties, but I feel ready to do more.
