am currently a student studying for my A-Levels; I take Art, Chemistry, and Biology. My main goal in life is to complete my qualifications and go on to study Veterinary Medicine or Animal Science at University, and from there I want to pursue a career in the Veterinary industry! Growing up, I lived on farms with a huge variety of animals, such as goats, sheep, pigs, hens, dogs and cats. Since the day I was born, I have always lived with and owned at least one dog, as I believe they truly are a man's best friend!
I have had more professional previous experiences through work placements:
-I have completed 20 hours in a local kennel and cattery, coming to understand what life is like for these animals inside enclosed spaces, and how this affects animal welfare
-I have also completed 30 hours is a canine hydrotherapy unit, looking more at the anatomy of a variety of dog breeds and understanding medical conditions such as hip dysplasia and osteoarthritis.
