Behind many veterinary professionals, there is a significant other. Over on the @DrAndyRoark Instagram, we asked you to share your best advice for the (very patient) people who are willing to date or marry us.
Here’s 4 things everyone agreed that significant others SHOULD NOT ask their veterinarian, vet tech or vet assistant:
1.) When will you be home?
@bigdealjen: We seldom leave work at the scheduled time off.
@nichollepark: Sometimes we don’t get to leave work when we are scheduled to be off. Emergencies happen
2.) How was your day? (Over dinner…)
@sabata0922: If you don’t want to hear the gory details, don’t ask.
3.) What’s that smell?
@lauren.adams516: Showering during vet school finals is optional!
4.) Did you bring home ANOTHER patient?
@octoberscorpion: You will have more pets than you ever imagined, and you WILL enjoy it.
