Its fairly obvious we all love animals, but here's a couple more reasons why I love being a veterinarian... Making a connection. I once read "only with animals can sit side by side, no words spoken, no action taken, and walk away being completely understood." How true! No day is ever the same. Some of my most amazing, funny, and adorable memories have come from these spontaneous characters (both pets and their people!) Sense of wonder. Animals have always inspired my imagination, thrilled my spirit and tugged at my heart. Who wouldn't love to nourish the bonds between animals and people everyday?
