Do Yourself a Favor and Listen to this Podcast!

This podcast it brilliant! I’ve been listening since it was started in 2019 and I look forward to hearing Jordan and Yvonne’s dulcet tones explaining everything Veterinary Internal Medicine related (and more). The information is laid out in an easily understandable fashion (yet not dumbed down), they go over topics thoroughly, their guests are fantastic, and at the end of the podcast you are left with a feeling of complete understanding. Truly an invaluable resource for anyone in the veterinary industry, pet owners, or those just curious as well! I have yet to find a podcast as informative as this and I hope this podcast goes on forever!!!

AMAZING

I’m actually a Spotify listener, but I purposely re-downloaded apple podcasts to write this review. As a 2nd year veterinary student with ADHD, I cannot stress how amazing this podcast is for me. The girls are so fun to listen to, and so informative. I feel like I am discussing Vet Med with my friends, which makes the information so easy to digest. The way the episodes are organized makes it so easy to follow along or look for a specific topic. I am an avid podcast listener, and to have another way of obtaining information is life changing for my studying. Y’all are amazing amazing amazing. Thank you so much for this podcast, truly life changing. PS i’ve already recommended this podcast to so many of my fellow Veterinary students. You rock!!!
