›› I get questions every day about how I'm finding working as a vet and requests to film a day in the life. It only took me 5 months to work up the courage to film one! Hope you guys enjoy and leave any questions in the comments below and I'll do my best to answer.
Big thanks to my work, Bendigo Equine Hospital for letting me video and also to the clients and horses featured!

It must be surreal finally getting to do the job you spent so long studying for right?

It looks like you have had some really good opportunities there. I’m thinking about being a small animal vet, I’m only 15 so it might change but I think it would be cool to be a vet, maybe even an equine one but I feel like that would be more stressful 😂❤️

Hoping my future will be similar. I'm first year in vet school and mid-term anatomy exam passed so fingers crosed. Wishing You the best Holly (more healthy foals to scruch of course) and greetings from Poland <3

Thx so much for this, Holly. Didn’t want to bug for you to do this, knew there could be privacy issues possible etc so so glad you were finally able and had a little time to do so. So much more relaxed and positive than I thought it might be (no doubt there is plenty of stress and occasional unfortunate out-come too that you can’t show). Really appreciated this. Thank you. So looking forward to seeing you back home in Ireland with your Dad and Khal and the gang.

This is the career I'm dedicating myself to, it's my dream, and seeing videos like this inspire me to work even harder to get the grades I need!! Thank you!

Thats so cool to see! I hope you do more videos about your job. My pony was in the equine hospital for 3 months, then a rehab barn. She is now home but is still in stall rest. She degloved her cannon bone and severed her extensor tendon. It has been about 14 months post accident, and the wound just closed about a month ago. I do all kinds of ground work with her but she still can not trot! She first had to grow granulation tissue over the bone, then proud flesh grew which we had to get deebrided, then the skin/epithelial tissue had to grow over.

Great vlog Holly, it was so nice to finally have an insight into your working days. I bet the variety of problems has been an amazing learning experience for you.
Have you got a job lined up back home in Ireland for when you get back or are you having a bit of a break when you get home hun?
Thank you for sharing this with us, it was really interesting watching it. Take care and stay safe over there hun 💜
