Mikkyla is very excited to be a part of the Externship Blog Project this year. She knows that her younger self would have loved to get an inside peak into life as a vet student! She hopes that this blog can be a source of education for the general public, inspiration for future veterinarians, or even just provide some entertainment for those wanting to follow along. Mikkyla is pursuing small animal medicine in her final year at OVC, and would like to go into general veterinary practice. She really enjoys that general practice gives her the opportunity be there for both her patients and their “pawrents” throughout all the ups and downs of their lives.
