when you come home from work dirty and try to calm your mother, "it's just a little manure..." (or dog poo as the case may be;) )

at my particular school, when they tell you you're going to get a minor in chemistry anyway so don't worry about picking one

when labs are your favorite social gatherings:D

I actually know vets in this situation; it boggles my mind :scared:

This was sent to me a couple of years ago...I think it was made by some CSU folks...

You know you are a vet student when.......

You start writing letters home in abbreviations.
You look deep into your lovers eyes and pull out a pen light.
You start highlighting TV guide.
Natural light makes you squint.
You finally make it home and your dog wont let you in.
You walk away from dishwashing with your hands in the air
You find yourself doing one handed ties on your shoe laces.
You wait for the grocery store clerk to grade your check.
You sign your name in dots.
While in a crowded elevator you start pondering the pathological agents
associated with aerosol transmission.
Noodles remind you of Taenia spp. (or vice versa).
You get a blood test and they diagnose caffeninemia.
Eating and sleeping are unnecessary luxuries.
Pimples become suppurative exudates.
You start picking out which zoonotic disease you would rather die from.
You get up at 3AM to check the spelling of oogonia. At 4 AM you get up
to see what it means.
You are told you smell like a freshman.
Someone asks you your name and you think it is a trick question.
There's such a thing as a 'real neat' lesion.
Gross lab makes you hungry.
You study at stop lights.
You go from wanting A's to worry about getting C's to praying that you
will pass, to wondering if the Marines still need a few good men!

When you have accidentally, albeit successfully, vaccinated yourself against any of the following diseases: Rabies, Distemper-Parvo, FIV, FCP...


When you no longer see your $80 sneakers for the ergonomically advanced features with ultimate comfort, but rather for what they rightfully are - possible vectors of disease transmission.


When you pull a shirt out of the dryer with a stain on it, you reflect back to that day in microbiology lab when you first learned about heat-fixing.

...when your friends stare at you in disbelief when you run into the room and proudly proclaim, "I artificially inseminated a sow today/ I stuck my hand into a cow's rectum/ I gave a dog an enema," etc., etc.

...when blood, feces, urine, and other bodily secretions no longer phase you and you actually get angry in labs when others refuse to touch/dissect something because they deem it "gross."

...you have your academic advisor's home phone number (just in case).

...you watch "Dirty Jobs" on Discovery and just laugh and think, "You have no idea..."

HAHA so true with the dirty jobs.

...when your wallet has more wood shavings in it from the barn then actual money (maybe thats only me)
...when people look at you like your crazy when you say you volunteer to clean up manure
...when you go out and spend top dollar on fancy barn boots and some how all your shoes end up being covered in manure
...you feel wierd when your clothes aren't covered in horse hair and you dont smell like any type of animal
...when expressing a dogs anal cavity becomes a daily routine

LOL Thats awesome - I actually used that in my interviews:

"Tell me about one of your biggest accomplishments."
"(excitedly) The first time I artificially inseminated a heifer!! It was fantastic!!"


And yes, I did run home that day and excitedly proclaim my excitement at having shoved my hand up a cow's rectum, proudly saying "I was born for this.." while everyone laughed and shook their heads.

I used a rabies decap. story for my VMCAS essay anecdote... hopefully didn't gross anybody out but still memorable. Perhaps a bold move.

......when you carry cans of cat/dog food, extra leads, towels, and a cardboard cat carrier in your car in case you encounter a creature in need on the road.

.....when you see animal blood on the floor and wall and don't even flinch, but when there's human blood on the floor (dog bit owner) you get squeamish.

...you're surprised that some people have never heard of James Herriot.

Most definitely! I have had so many arguements with my friends over the fact that they don't know who he is. I've given up now, i just accept that they don't know and sit happily laughing to myself at his anecdotes!

When your sitting at lunch talking about why can't a cow throw up. Someone chimes in they do they regurgitate. And the other says No I'm talking about truly vomiting. And we all begin discussing how it would have to go through the rumen, abomasum,....you get the picture. And no one hesitates to continue eating their lunch. And yes this happened today.;)

when you've read every vet-related biography in your library and wonder why they don't expand the (tiny) section.

just thought some of you would find this funny...

First-year students at Texas A&M's Vet School were receiving their first anatomy class, with a real dead cow. They all gathered around the surgery table with the body covered with a white sheet. The professor started the class by telling them, "In Vet Medicine it is necessary to have two important qualities as a doctor: The first is that you not be disgusted by anything involving the animal body. For an example, the Professor pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger in the butt of the dead cow, withdrew it and stuck it in his mouth. "Go ahead and do the same thing," he told his students The students freaked out, hesitated for several minutes. But eventually took turns sticking a finger in the anal opening of the dead cow and sucking on it.
When everyone finished, the Professor looked at them and told them "The second most important quality is observation. I stuck in my middle finger and sucked on my index finger. Now learn to pay attention.
