Absolutely Amazing !

Hey guys!
Just wanted to pop by and leave an a+ review, I have been working in veterinary medicine as an assistant, large and small for ten plus years.I have not found a pod cast or any educational information as entertaining worth while, and useful as this one! I currently work in a specialty and emergency clinic in my state, and absolutely love it! You’re casts have definitely aided in clarifying and helping understand the difficult cases that come in and out of the clinic. originally started with the cardiology series and had to start back at the beginning. Currently trying to get seated in a VMT program so I can further my career. Keep doing what you are doing!

Shelton

P.S. I have referred every Tech/Nurse and assistant to this pod cast that I come by !

Absolutely love it

Hello Yvonne and Jordan! I’m Trina and I guess you could call me a vet tech fetus! I’m working my way thru school and recently just started my second semester. My hopes are to become an equine VTS but I love all animals and enjoy learning everything I can about every creature I can. I currently work in a lumber mill while going to school, so get to listen to your podcasts for several hours a day (more like 10) and absolutely Love your podcast. I’m not going to lie, a bunch of the info is still a ways over my head but I thoroughly enjoy listening and have actually learned quite a bit here and there. I dropped your guys podcast on our school website for others to be able to find you and have also dropped the eclinpath.com sense you are so very right, it’s a very helpful website. I look forward to listening to and finishing the remaining 100 ish podcast and can guarantee I will be revisiting them when I’m further in my studies! I truly hope you ladies have a great rest of your year and can’t wait to tune in again. Happy birthday Jordan. I know it’s late but I just listened to that episode so it’s fresh in my mind (my phone plays the podcast backwards… idk.. silly phone!)
Sincerely,
One Die hard listener
Trina
