( READ BOOK ) ☲ Tales from a Young Vet ⚆ MOBI eBook or Kindle ePUB free

I wishI can t think of any part of this book I disliked I wish I had been a vet but there is no way I would have coped with the studying and you can understand from Jo s writing how totally dedicated a vet is I felt the tension going through the exams and waiting for the results Eager to read the next book and find out where her life is going Offering a glimpse into the life of a final year vet student, this was packed full of cool cases, life decisions, and all the people Jo met during her studies The variety of animals that she helped treat was endless and there were some very touching stories She talks about her life a lot too, so it s not all about animals and vet school Her indecision about how she wanted to start her career after graduation is very relatable Seeing what my life will be like in a couple years was both cool and scary I have so much to learn before 4th yearIt s always hard for a vet to accept that they can t help an animal and must let it go You do everything you can to help an animal get well, but sometimes your best efforts just aren t enough, and part of the job is knowing when to stop No language, no bawdiness interesting, pleasant read.
