The Veterinarian field interests me in many ways. There are many benefits, and a few shortcomings. Veterinarians have the ability to heal various animals right before their eyes. Veterinarians also have communication skills, allowing them to connect with the animals’ owners.

I have visited Purdue University for their animal science workshops. They have taught me more knowledge about animals and the Veterinary profession. I have also nurtured an off- the-track racehorse...
