I love hearing about how you are getting on, it's cool.

 

I just assisted in my first surgery on the Thursday. It was great! I really enjoyed getting dressed up into my scrubs and gown and face mask and gloves. Aseptic technique for the win! Scrubbing in took me a good 10 minutes at least. Unfortunately we are not allowed to post pictures on the internet, which is sad because I have some awesome pics of me in full attire.

The week before that we had to try and attempt a neuro exam on 4 month old puppies. It was very challenging, but highly entertaining, with many faces thoroughly licked.

Sorry to hear about all the horses, sounds like it would have been a rough week.

So I had my big three hour birds exam today.

 

 

The cage and aviary medicine topic was on....

 

Scaly face! HAHA! What a breeze!

 

Sometime nice finally came my way. I'm going to ignore the collective disasters that were horses, alpacas, dogs and cats.

 

4 down, 4 to go, 4 days left. I can't wait til exams are over and I can SLEEP.

 

Eight exams in nine days is cruelty, it should be illegal!

Hey guys, Semester 8 has begun. Yes, I passed! With a shiny high distinction for Birds. From now on, I'm officially a trainee veterinarian. The thrill at hearing that when I'm introduced to a client hasn't quite worn off yet. Especially when they call me Doctor!

 

I'm now doing work placements from here on out until the Grand Finals/Big Orals in November and then, well, beyond that.. well, let's concentrate on passing first.

 

I'm currently having a blast at Canterbury Veterinary Clinic, which is officially my "dogs and cats" block but unofficially it's to satisfy my "ferrets, rabbits, snakes and turtles" needs. Drop by and visit :lol:

 

Here's where I'll be in the next few months:

* 20/07/09: Canterbury Veterinary Clinic (Surrey Hills)

* 10/08/09: UoM Clinical Pathology elective (Werribee)

* 31/08/09: Brisbane Birds and Exotics Service/Brisbane Bird Vet (Macgregor and Chermside)

* 12/10/09: Station St Veterinary Clinic (Koo Wee Rup)

 

I'll try to update when I can. The end is so close...

Mixed Practice - now in its final season!

I'm so amazed.

 

It's now time for the Grand Finals. Two exams down, four to go.

 

And then... I'll be a veterinarian.

 

How quickly it all goes.
