Today was Lesson 1 of my Veterinary Assistant class. I copied all the lesson and printed it out.  Read it multiple times and took the quiz. I got 100% on the quiz cuz it was fresh in my head.  I hope I do that well the rest of the course and do well on the final.

The first part of the lesson was on the Origins of the Veterinary Field.  Back in the Ancient Roman age the Veterinary doctors only worked on animals you rode and ate (i.e. horse, cattle, sheep & pigs).  The in 2000BC the Egyptians domesticated cats and revered them.  They killed poisonous snakes and vermin. A while after in Medieval times, the dog became a huge asset for hunting.  And so on and so on...

The second part of the lesson was on the reproduction cycles of cats and dogs.  Also when you should neuter & spay your pet.  It also went over all the health issues your pet can get from not being neutered and spayed.  It was very informative.
