Warning- gore galore!  Little kitty hit by a car, we amputated leg and tail, still such a friendly little cat.

If anybody is interested in checking out some of the crazy and unique things that happen in emergency practice, then make sure to check out Skye’s blog: http://parvoandparasites.tumblr.com/ 
Some of the highlights include a dog that swallowed EIGHTY EIGHT rocks! And, of course, this very lucky cat that was looked after by the vets at the emergency centre.

Hi. I have a problem with a puppy and need advice on what to do
A reply from the-vet-life

Wow, this is probably the vaguest question I’ve received in a while. 

Short answer: go to your local vet.

Long answer: I don’t know what’s wrong with your puppy. Go to your local vet.

Perfect response!

Hi! I'm a future vet student heading to Australia next year for my first year of university. Vet Science at CSU looks really exciting! I realise that since you're in CSU you may not be able to answer my question, but I figured I'd give it a try in case you know people in other Australian vet schools. I'm really conflicted about which vet school to choose to attend! Do you know anything about what distinguishes the vet course in USyd from UQ from Murdoch? Thank you!

Hi,

Vet Science at CSU IS really exciting! But it’s also exciting all over Australia, so you shouldn’t have any fear of missing out based upon which uni you choose to attend…
Fortunately I’m a bit of a social student so I’ve been to conferences with students and vets from all over Australia which has allowed me to meet a huge range of students. The good news is that vet students no matter where you go are a friendly group of people - we need to be in order to survive the 5-8 years of our study!

As for specifics, I could write an essay on the different courses from my subjective viewpoint as a CSU student  - totally the best uni ;). However I think it would be of little benefit to you. The best advice I could give you would be to visit each individual universities websites. That information will be working to impress upon you the impressiveness of the particular course, but at least the bias is clear and even!

You can always email the universities directly with your questions and the admissions staff should be more than willing to assist you with your questions.

Just remember that many courses have additional entrance requirements so make sure to check those out so your application can be accepted!

What are you going into after 4th year? Food animal (I'm guessing from your pictures)? Also: in Australia, do most of you guys complete a 4 year undergraduate degree before going into vet school, like we do in the states?

Hi!

The great/concerning/exciting/confusing thing about me is that I actually don’t know exactly what I want to do. When I say that it may seem that I am just not passionate enough about any particular area, but the opposite is true! I am far too passionate about everything!

My areas of interest range from food animals (as you said), to horses, to epidemiology, to internal medicine, to anaesthesia, to critical care, to pathology, to wildlife, and to a whole range of other options. I’ve seriously considered a huge range of veterinary careers - virtually all except for orthopaedic surgery (I get that it’s fairly impressive, it’s just not for me). My course has a strong focus on the livestock industries and I have had some wonderful opportunities to be involved in food security in Pakistan. I also live in a rural community, so livestock are a part of everyday life for me. That is, when I’m not at university studying.

The courses in Australia are quite variable. At some universities they will have a postgraduate programme which is similar to that in the states with a required undergrad (normally 3 years in Australia for a single degree) for admission. Other courses like mine at CSU accept undergraduate students as well as postgrads, so there are some students who have entered their veterinary degree directly from high school.
