What is Dr. Lissa Calhoun’s favorite thing about being a veterinarian?

There is definitely not just one thing I love about being a veterinarian.  I love so many aspects of this career.  Being a veterinarian means continually learning and improving.  Every day is different.  I never know how the next patient will challenge my skills and knowledge.  No matter what the day brings, every day is an opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives through their pets.
