Ethics, Animal Pain, and We are Scientists

Today has been long and I feel I’ve acheived a lot. Thank you to everyone that has supported my attempt to reach vet school! I actually had someone in Sweden donate today so it really is a global effort and I am really touched!

I’ve just recieved my ethics approval so am able to start collecting data for my Dissertation!!! Very exciting and I will be getting my survey online when I wake up tommorow and would appreciate each and every response I can get 🙂

Something I am really wanting to talk about is animal pain, however as this is the subject of my dissertation I am really not wanting to cover it too much before I have done my data collection so I do not risk influencing anybody. I will go into this and you will have a weeks worth of writtings on it soon! 🙂

Anyways after all the work I have done today I also took this evening of to join my housemates at the free live music events in Gloucester. The first was part of the Gloucester Food Festival, and the second was in part of PARK:LIVE which was absolutely awesome. I even grabbed a photo to share with you 🙂 I thought it was very appropiate as the band was called “We are Scientists”

I also came across the Animals Inside Out exhibition on at the Natural History Museum until September. This is adapted from Gunther von Hagens bodyworld and basically shows the animals tissues, organs and blood supply preserved using silicone. I am so going spend a day down there with my sketchbook and camera to make use of such a wonderful resource before I head of to vet school! You can check out some of the exhibits here: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit-us/whats-on/temporary-exhibitions/animal-inside-out/highlights-slideshow/index.html

Until tommorow.
