I did it :D
I passed all my exams and last Friday successfully defended my Thesis so I've signed the book of graduates and I'm going to be a vet!

Diseases of Small Animals (cats and dogs) was my last rotation block and State exam (oral exam with a panel of 5) which is the hardest of all six so I was a bit worried about having to resit and messing up my summer plans but we all passed and did well!

We had our graduation ball on Sunday which was really nice

I flew home yesterday as I have a few family bits and working next week then I'm driving back to Slovakia next weekend, having a roadtrip across Europe to collect my dog, taking them to the beach with a few friends, graduation and then drive home.

I had a few interviews in April, of the 5 interviews I got 6 offers because a charity hospital I've been going to for years recommended me for a job! I chose a Small Animal hospital really close to home, they're a really sociable team, 10 vets with lots of certificates and experience, laparascopy (key-hole) surgery and other 'toys' so I should learn lots.

I’ve not been on for a while.  So thrilled for you. Many congratulations. 

I feel like I know you even though we’ve never met. I have to agree with DM you look so grown up. 

Well done. A great achievement.

Quick question, do you get to use Dr as your title now ( instead of Mr)?

Thanks everyone, I feel like I know lots of you and I've grown up on here even though we've never met ...though I have met quite a few of you!

I do get to use Dr, my degree is DVM Doctor of Veterinary Medicine but even those who graduate with a BVSc in the UK are able to use the title :)

Haven't really thought about it but I'll probably keep the blog if anything interesting or exciting happens.
