    you'll need a weeks stable and a weeks farm anyway, i'm not sure what to suggest about getting large animal vets except that keep trying, and maybe stay somewhere, where abouts do you live?

    Ok now i'm totally out of options for large animal vets. I have tried absolutely everywhere around my area but a lot of regetions are due to insurance

    Any advice anyone?

    I did a week at a mixed practice vet - they do the SA plus they have a farm side. Do you think it is worth asking if i could go there and get a weeks worth of work experience on the farmers side of it? Would this count as large animal vet work?

    Thanks

    I live on a farm so obviously have tonnes of farm experience. Would universities take this into account?
    No, the work experience can't be on your own farm.

    This is what I have so far:
    1 week mixed vet
    3 weeks calving
    12 weeks lambing
    1 year general sheep work
    1 week care farm
    This is what I am planning to do:
    6 weeks lambing
    1 week calving
    1 week egg farm
    1 week kennels
    1 week abattoir
    As much vet experience as possible
    and that's about it really. Do I need a wider range of experience, or will this be ok?

    I would definately recommend getting experience in a small animal vets and at a stables. Also, are you sure you want to spend a week in an abattoir, a day is enough.
