Welcome back to my blog!! This summer was one of the most relaxing breaks I have had in a while. As far as vet experience is concerned, I mainly escaped from the grips of science and chilled for the summer, and I am unashamed to say it 🙂 I did get to do some vet experience though, and it was with UGA’s CVF (Christian Veterinarian Fellowship Club). We got to stay at 2 Native American reservations in Arizona (Navajo and Apache) and do spay and neuter surgeries for dogs, cats, horses, and cows. We also did horse dentistry (“Floating”), which I thought was pretty cool. The best thing that we got to though do was the evangelism! It was so powerful guys!
-Some classmates have the honor of representing our class as ambassadors, so they will be welcoming the Class of 2017 during Orientation Week before school starts.
+many classmates went home and worked at their local clinic. Look around! There’s bound to be a clinic near you to work or volunteer at. Others worked at a mixed animal practice. I honestly have a hard time finding these.

+There are a lot of doctors at UGA’s vet school who offer research opportunities during the summer. Do not hesitate to read and research about what they do so that may be they can arrange a project to do with you in the future
