KEEPING THE COMMUNITY CONNECTED
Imagine performing surgery inside of a small marble. And inside that marble, the things you need to work on are so small that you have to look through a microscope in order to see them. Still, if you do everything right, you will give someone’s pet, the chance to see again. This is cataract surgery.
When I first thought of the idea to film veterinarians, I wondered if it would even be possible. I knew the films would be the perfect way to take kids and teens behind the scenes and introduce them to the world of veterinary medicine. However, I had a lot of concerns about the process.
To become a veterinarian, most students will go through four years of college and four years of veterinary school. This is twice the amount of schooling a typical college graduate must go through and it can be very expensive. When I first created it, one of the dreams I had for Ichabod Ink was that it would provide financial support to veterinary students. This week, we helped our first student.
What I like best about my role at Ichabod Ink is the chance to visit veterinarians in their hospitals and see what they are up to. I must admit, even though I am a veterinarian, I’m often surprised with what I find. Veterinarians are doing amazing things everyday to help animals.
