Third Year.

  • I now know how to properly remove eyeballs, teeth, ovaries and testicles. Watch out world!  (I am not a fan of pulling teeth! Yuck!)
  • I have palpated lots of cows and actually know what I'm doing now. Anybody need some cows preg checked? :) 
  • We are smack dab in the middle of the theriogenology class. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love the information but there is a lot of it! If only I didn't have other classes to study for as well... 
  • I can do a lameness exam on your horse plus put in urinary and IV catheters. 
  • I anesthetized my first patient Friday. She survived and I survived. (I was a little stressed about it but it was actually pretty fun.)
  • I have studied lots and lots. I have more free time in the afternoons though so I have been able to keep my weekend studying to a minimum. 
  • But most of all this semester has been fun! Much more hands on and I actually feel like I'm learning something worthwhile and putting the past 2 years of studying to use.

Allyson- I'm excited that you posted a blog! I was curious how the school year was going for you.
