10 Tips to Manage the NAVLE and Veterinary School Stress

For many students getting into veterinarian school is the culmination of a lifelong dream, years of preparation, time, money, hopes and sacrifice. In undergrad, while your liberal arts major friends were off drinking on Thursday night, you were struggling to finish that organic chemistry lab for 8am Friday morning.
 
You spent all of Homecoming week cramming for the GRE and all of Thanksgiving break getting your first round of school applications completed. You spent hundreds of dollars filling out those supplemental applications and lived off Ramen noodles so you could save money to go to interviews. When all of your friends were sleeping in on Saturday morning, you were going to your weekend job at an animal hospital cleaning kennels or mucking out stalls. 
 
 It is a huge deal to get into veterinary school. It takes a strong personality, a smart mind, and perseverance. I had to apply to vet school 3 times before I got in. I cried when I got my first acceptance letter.  I was so happy.

The Holiday Season is in full swing and I don’t know about you, but it is a struggle for me to make good food choices and find the time to exercise during all of the festivities.  Unfortunately for our pets there seems to be a correlation with our Winter weight gain and their Winter weight gain.  I had so many Spring Wellness exams that started out with, Fluffy has gained quite a bit of weight over the Winter and we will need to do something about that.  

In a way, I feel for the clients.  If you live in a cold climate it can be hard to take your dog out for a walk when it is freezing cold or freezing rain.  The sidewalks get clogged with ice and snow and it is dark out earlier so it really can be treacherous to take your pup out for a walk.  Unfortunately, if you are like me, you feel guilty when you don’t take your dog for a walk so you make up for it by giving treats.  Decreased calories out and increased calories in is a dangerous equation for weight gain.
