Veterinary school can get a little… messy. @docbeach97 shared this story on the @DrAndyRoark Instagram to remind us to always laugh it off. (Even when “it” is all over our face).

I was in a bovine theriogenology palpation lab…


As I was removing my arm from the cow, it farted and sprayed fecal material all over me.

My instructor says in a dry tone, “Brings new meaning to the expression ‘getting $#!+-faced.'”💩
