I graduated with my DVM degree from Purdue University's College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. My background is large animal ambulatory medicine but I know a few things about cats and dogs, too. But not chinchillas. No clue about those things.
|That's definitely NOT a chinchilla.|
I am currently a contributing editor for the magazine Horse Illustrated and blogger over at HobbyFarms.com. I'm also a non-fiction reader over at the literary journal Indianola Review. You can also find my work periodically in various other animal/pet publications such as Modern Farmer, Your New Horse, Dog Fancy, Cats USA, Just Labs, and Hobby Farms. See my page "Recent Publications" for my latest and greatest.
I'm starting to dabble more in fiction and enjoying toying with some short stories, with future plans that include a novel. Let's just hope this future isn't too far away, like when large corporations are mining Uranus for flammable gas. Which reminds me, I also love NASA space history. And I enjoy fart jokes.
|I also enjoy flying kites. But then again, who doesn't?|
Currently, when not traveling, you can find me in Maryland with two cats, Tuna and Scabs; a black Lab mix named Jetta; and a husband. They are all house trained and friendly toward guests.
If you have questions, comments, or complaints, you can leave a message on this blog or at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm usually more educational on my Twitter feed @annaobriendvm where the 140 character limit tempers extraneous fluff and general ridiculousness. On this blog, however, there is no limit. You've been warned.
