4H Vet Science Group

My daughter has joined a 4H Vet science program. It's a 5 year program to be a Veterinary Assistant. It is quite amazing how this all came to be. When my daughter was 5 she said she wanted to be a Veterinarian. Now the only problem with that is that she was terrified of dogs. "In her own child-like faith way, she would say God is going to take my fear of dogs away and I'm going to be a Vet!" And sure enough He did take her fear away and now we even dogsit for others when they are out of town. Now that is the kind of faith I need!

Last night was the group first activity meeting where they interview a Veterianarian and ask about educational background and duties. Our group chose a PetSmart. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

Here my daughter is trying on the gloves they use to keep the cats from scratching them.

They got to go into the x-ray room and see an actual x-ray of one of the patients. The Vet nurse explained what they were looking at.

All the kids went home with a free stethoscope and one of the parents wrote to our Yahoo group last night to say that her daughter was already trying the stethoscope out on her cat. How sweet.

We are looking forward to the next activity.


  1. How very, very cool! I've got a few kids around here that would LOVE that program!

  2. Marcus would have loved going on the field trip. He loves animals.

  3. I decided to post a list of frugal grocery shopping questions on my blog.
    I invite you to share your answers to some or all of them. I could use some help.
    Thank you.

  4. Hey, That is an awesome way to slide into a profession! Sounds like such a good learning experience for your daughter.

  5. I nominated you for a blog award on my blog because your sweet spirit is a blessing to me. I'm glad to know you in blogland and I'm thankful that I've gotten to meet you in real life!! If you don't have time and/or interest in doing all of the award stuff, that's fine, I just wanted you to know that I appreciate you!

  6. I just want to let you know that your blog has inspired me so I nominated you for the Kreativ bloggers award. You can visit my blog to pick it up. Ann had the same idea I see.
    Love you.
