    just a suggestion, but as some of them are quite expensive to subscribe to, it may be worth finding out if your local library get them in, or asking your school librarian/careers adviser if they could get them?

    Hi,
    im going to do vet med this year. i had a read of vet record i think, and to be honest there was very little that i could understand, since a lot was like papers on pathology and other things that a non vet couldnt understand! a few vaguely interesting things, but mostly not very useful. there are plenty of very good websites with interesting info on that are far cheaper (free!) than journals.

    Another good thing to do, is watch 'Countryfile' on Sunday lunchtimes on BBC 1. They often have topical issues on there and the information is obviously very up to date. I found it really helpful and it makes you much more aware of farmers views with issues such as TB etc.

    To be honest, I often don't understand a word of what's in the Vet Record. I subscribe to it for the information about what's going on in the profession (which it's very useful for, especially before interviews) but the articles are WAAAAAY above my head! "In Practice" is more understandable, often has quite good articles in it and is cheaper.

    Do you do any work experience in a small animal practice? It might be worth asking if they have any copies- the vets' where I work keeps them for a while- so you might be able to read it there.

    Suzy_vet- where are you studying next year? I'm going to Bristol

    Cheers Tamsin! I was in mixed practise recently and read some vet record and it was too confusing for me ;-) I read UK Vet also which is quite good, am tempted to subscribe as they do a student rate. Vet Times was best though, I think its weekly and has all the news in it :-) also job adverts which are always fun to read (and dream) about. xxx
