Why do you choose to be an emergency veterinarian? 
Providing immediate patient care and managing life-threatening emergencies and diseases. I always feel satisfied saving a pet who has been hit by a car, a cat that ingested a poisonous plant or any other patient that needs imminent treatment. Doing that, simply lifts my spirit on a daily basis.
