An AVID animal lover, generous, selfless, and always willing to help.
I am a Pre Vet Med student. I have tons of Vet tech experience in a a few fast paced Veterinary offices. I have volunteered for a wildlife center in my area for 8 months. I also did some work at a dog resort. I have a Nutritional Advocates certificate from Hill's Pet food including multiple certificates from Vetmedteams. I have owned cats, dogs, and multiple types of reptiles. I own 5 cats and a puppy at the moment. I have also spent a lot of time with horses, riding and taking care of them. They have a special place in my heart. I stop for turtles and move them.. I sometimes swerve to miss frogs, I stop for squirrels. I will also drive the country side looking for abandoned/sick animals I take them to our wonderful no kill animal shelter with food and I stay updated on their situation. I get really mad if I see someone walking their animal and it is not castrated or their vulva is swollen. I don't hesitate to yell "get your dog fixed! your overpopulating the world!" My hubby turns and walks the other way...
I really hate watching others brush their teeth. =)
Education isn't a race. I will get to where I'm going. When I fall, I will get right back up again.

My Sad News: Today we got the results of my Charlie Kitty's Kidney Biopsy. (he has been in renal failure for about 6 months now) He ingested Antifreeze at some point within the last 6 months and last week when we took him to the Vet he was on the verge of dying. I had a gut feeling it was Antifreeze but we couldn't figure out where he'd gotten it from because he doesn't regularly go outside. (We also do not have a garage) I am going to give him Sub Q fluids and other various med's when needed until he passes. When that is, I have no idea. Please keep your animals safe by keeping antifreeze away from them or getting animal friendly/kid friendly antifreeze. My Charlie is only 7. Kidney Transplants and Dialysis are not in our budget.
