I can't believe it but I've only got 2 blocks of rotaions left! I've passed all my monthly exams so far and got a really pleasing mark for my case presentation so I'm right on track.
We have a few study days this week so I'm at home and reading up for my next rotation: dentistry and opthalmology. I'm not that keen on dentistry really but I reckon once we get into it it could be really rewarding as a lot of owners don't really realise how bad their pet's teeth are as they often cope so well with dental disease. My cat has always had really bad teeth and only has about 5 left in her mouth (which makes playing with her a bit less painful sometimes if I get in the way of the toy mouse!). I think dentistry could be a big part of being a general practicioner so I'd better go and swot up.

As for the opthalmology, I think working in an optician's, even though it's humans, has helped me quite in a small way. I got to practice using the scope on my fellow unsuspecting colleagues and it's nice to try it on something/one that knows to sit still first!
