I am a first year veterinary student at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I am fundraising for a field clinic this summer that will provide free veterinary care to people in an area where access to resources like medical care for animals is hard to come by. Before I began my education as a vet student, I worked and volunteered in small animal clinics where I discovered that many loving pet parents simply do not have the financial resources to provide the best medical care to their animals. This creates emotional stress and tough decisions to be made when deciding whether or not their pets can receive treatment. I feel it is important to give back to the veterinary community and help those in need, and am participating in this trip because it will also be an educational opportunity that will allow me to grow my skills so that I may further help pet parents in need in the future.
