Greetings Pet Owners:
I just got back from competing in the Nautica South Beach (Miami) Triathlon, and as such, I do not have a new video for you today. Please enjoy the re-run above of a popular video I posted earlier this season about smoking and pets, as my body recuperates from the pounding it just took.
I will be posting a new video Wednesday, April 11, 2012, detailing what it takes to become a veterinarian. This will likely be an eye opener for many people that faithfully bring their pets to us for health care, yet never really knew what journey brought us here.
For those interested in making an actual career as a veterinarian, this upcoming episode will most most helpful, as it will give you an idea of the amount of preparation, rigorous study, and years of sacrifice necessary to achieve a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. It certainly is much more than just playing with cute, fuzzy creatures all day, although I must admit…that is one part of the joys of my job. 🙂
