Favourite Animal: Emily says dolphins while Ryan likes the polar bear
Best class in Veterinary College: Both agree that Radiology is fun but Emily also enjoys Anesthesia while Ryan likes learning about Surgery
Why they’re in Vet School: Emily found her inspiration while working at a wildlife rehabilitation clinic. Ryan, on the other hand, claims he just always knew; we still have to ask him if his intuition extends to predicting lottery numbers.
Trip details: Ryan and Emily will be traveling to Thailand to volunteer at the Koh Samui Dog and Cat Rescue and helping out at an Elephant Nature Park. They will make a stopover in Cambodia where they will also be doing coral reef surveys. Beyond animal saving this team has some amazing hikes planned where they will visit temples and even travel down the Mekong Delta River.

Q and A with Emily and Ryan

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve learned about animals: “Polar bear livers are not safe to eat because they have a toxic level of vitamin A”
Got any advice for kids who want to become veterinarians? “Don’t let anyone tell you it’s too difficult to become a veterinarian. Remember to work hard and get involved in the veterinary community, and you will surely get there!”
Why are you volunteering with Global Vets? “Volunteering with the Global Vets program will allow us to learn different techniques that veterinarians in developing countries use, often having to make do with fewer resources than we have here in Canada.”

Find out more about Global Vets and meet the rest of the teams. Check back in soon to catch all the action as these teams blog about their adventures helping animals around the world!
