I am currently in my gap year after graduating with an animal science degree from Purdue in May. I’m awaiting vet school acceptances at this moment. Upon getting into vet school, I aspire to eventually open a practice of my own and practice on companion animals.

Share a funny story that happened at work or a funny animal-related story that has happened to you.
In one of my animal science courses at Purdue, I had to go to the swine farm at 5 am and vaccinate 200 piglets with one other person. The piglets were about 30 pounds so they were getting kind of heavy as the morning went on, and they were running around their pen like psychos so we basically had to tackle them to stop them from running away. Meaning- I was diving straight into manure for 3 hours. My body hurt for 3 days after, and I had thrown my clothes away after 5 washes that didn’t get the manure stench out…

If you could compare yourself to any animal, which would it be and why?
Probably a sloth because I can be completely content laying around doing absolutely nothing all day.

If you could have any animal in the world as a pet, what would it be, and why?
I know crowns aren’t exotic and easily accessible, but I would have a Jersey cow because they seriously have the sweetest faces. Their eyelashes are so long and adorable!
