    No doubt in my mind you’ll get accepted! ;)

  • theBCnut

    Oh, that’s just normal for me.

  • Dori

    Doesn’t matter HDM. You’ve been accepted for an interview. That is BIG!!!!!

  • Dori

    Don’t forget to cross your eyes too!!!!

  • Dori

    OMG! So proud of you! You are going to be the star of your class. YES!!!!!!!!! As hard as you work, for sure, we are all going to seek you out when you will be known as “the go to vet”. Wow! Excellent HDM. So happy and excited for me. As someone else said on the thread….we will all be able to say we knew you when you were a poster on DFA. Now, don’t forget us girl. So happy for you. You will go far.

  • theBCnut

    The first step on the journey is still on the journey. We’ll have fingers and toes crossed for you.

    Yes, vets can become board certified in nutrition. It’s definitely something I’d be interested in, but I’ll just have to see where my schooling takes me. I’ll be exposed to a lot of things so my interests could change. I mean this summer I interned with a large animal vet and I ended up enjoying it much more than any of the small animal stuff I’ve done so who knows what I’ll end up doing. :)

  • Hound Dog Mom

    Well, I haven’t gotten accepted yet so we all still have to keep our fingers crossed. :)

  • Crazy4cats

    Good luck and congratulations!

  • theBCnut

    I think Disqus doesn’t allow it except if you go back and edit, depending on what you are using. I think I get paragraph breaks on my iThingy, but not on my laptop.

  • theBCnut

    WooHoo!!! Way to go girl!!

  • Cyndi

    Congratulations!! So happy for you!! We can all say ‘We knew you when…’! Lol!!

  • aquariangt

    is your long term plan to focus on nutrition of some sort? If that’s even a things for vets to focus on (mostly comparing to human medical because I don’t know the whole system there)

    I’m glad you have the where with all to focus and do that :) I always wanted to go into the animal sciences but found myself too restless with school to go for anything that long. Dealing with the clientele I have now, I certainly regret that decision from time to time :)
    Edit: Why can’t I ever get paragraph spacing down on disqus…

  • Hound Dog Mom

    Thanks :)

    No, there’s really no such thing as a “pre-veterinary medicine” undergrad degree. Although, most students who apply to vet school do tend to major in animal science, biology or chemistry you can major in anything you want as long as you complete the prerequisite coursework.

    I actually have an undergrad degree in global supply chain management. I’m just back in school finishing my prereqs now, I am taking some vet tech classes because the school I’m at now has a tech program but I’m doing those more just for fun and to “fluff” my schedule up to full time status. Doing vet tech or anything like that won’t help you get into vet school.

  • aquariangt

    congratulations! Is your undergrad in veterinary medicine of some sort as well? I’m sure you’ll do a great job, you certainly have plenty of knowledge to be successful in the field

  • aimee

    Awesome HDM. So excited for you.

  • DogFoodie

    You go girl!!

  • Hound Dog Mom

    Wanted to let everyone know I got my first vet school interview invite today for Midwestern. It’s scheduled for November 20th. I’m pretty excited. :)

  • DogFoodie

    Awesome Cyndi!!

  • theBCnut

    That’s great!! I hope we hear from a bunch of people around Cleveland!!

  • Cyndi

    I hope there are a lot of new visitors on DFA from the Cleveland area. There was a big article about doing good by your dog in the local Cleveland area paper yesterday and they mentioned checking out your dog’s food on dog food advisor. I was so happy to see that. I design local business ads for a local coupon book and every month we find interesting facts to put in between ads, and a few times I wrote something up about DFA and put the website in one of those spots. I hope more and more people continue to find this site and it helps them as much as it’s helped me! :)

    will diluting store bought chicken broth reduce the sodium content which is 7% – also i’m not into making my own – thanks

  • Cyndi

    Absolutely!

  • theBCnut

    Now I really am LMAO!!! Those would be perfect! And if I wore them, I really could say “My eyes are up here.” Oh wait, most of them were extremely high heels, so my eyes probably would end up somewhere near the floor. It would be my feet up there.

  • theBCnut

    Well, it is breast cancer awareness month, and I do wear pink…

  • DogFoodie

    Blue Footed Booby was what I thought of every time I logged on. I found it amusing. : )

  • DogFoodie

    LOL! See, that’s funny stuff isn’t it!?

  • Cyndi

    Aww, Come on!! I want to call you Booby!! Ha ha! Just kidding. I just thought of that corny saying, “You can call me anything, just don’t call me late for dinner” LOL!

  • theBCnut

    I prefer BFB.

  • Cyndi

    I can’t look at that picture without Lmao!!! It’s just too funny! I’m calling you Blue Footed Booby from now on…..or just Booby for short! LOL!

  • theBCnut

    YES!! Perfect!
