Knowledge is Power
It’s amazing to say that we’re almost done with this semester and so close to Thanksgiving!
It’s incredible to me those of us in the Veterinary Class of 2022 have completed our first year and are halfway through our second year.
Looking back and considering all of the things we’ve studied, I see each skill I have learned in first year gradually increasing in difficulty and bringing me closer to use in a veterinary practice.
For instance, this semester included the Pharmacology class, which teaches us the study of drugs for therapeutic use in the clinic.
A few of my friends and I realized that in addition to giving us a good basis for diagnosing conditions, we can now consider treatment options as well!
How we reached this point when I feel like we’ve just started is something we all joke about, even though we are consistently reminded of the day-to-day activities and classes that stretch our knowledge in the best way.
I’ll have to admit that it’s so great to reach this point in the year because it allows us to take a breath before finals. I begin to think back and appreciate the tough waves my classmates and I faced and conquered within 15 weeks.
Plus, with Thanksgiving in sight, I get to enjoy an awesome meal with my family, so how can I resist from saying this is one of my favorite times of the year?!?
