I have been a vegetarian for 5 and a half years and have worked in the veterinary field for the past 3 years. I have not met even ONE other vegetarian, and in fact a lot of the (male) doctors and techs give me **** for being one. I wrote about this a lot in my vet essays... I think it is odd to spend the morning healing animals and then take a break in the afternoon to consume them. Anyways, I saw "veganchick" and it made me wonder how many other pre vetters are veggie or vegan. ps. my nickname at work is "veggie," short for veggie tales... flattering eh?
