  7. 7. III. 10 Things – What I know, assume, and imagine 12 Points(Rough Draft hand written or typed)<br /> Introduction - Why I chose my topic:   When I was a young girl, I decided that animals needed me.  Every time I found a wounded or stray animal, I felt as though it were my duty to doctor it or find it a home.  Sometimes my attempts at healing the wounds worked, but sometimes they failed miserably.  What I Know, Assume, or Imagine:      Once, when I was six, I found a baby bird that had fallen out of its nest and had been abandoned by its momma.  I brought it home and my mom and I fixed a little nest in a bowl for it.  We put it above the kitchen stove to keep it warm.  My dad came home from work that night and did not know the bird was there.  He turned the stove on to fix himself a snack before bed and cooked my poor little bird!      That is when I decided that I wanted to open a shelter for homeless animals and be able to have children bring me all of the birds, cats, dogs, horses, pigs, cows, sheep, etc. that they ever found.  To a six year old, that was a perfectly logical thing to do so that no more birds would unknowingly get cooked.What I want to find out:     Now that I have grown up and become a little wiser, I still want to take care of animals, but I know there is a lot more to it than just opening a shelter and telling the kids to bring me sick, homeless animals.  What would I do with them?  How would I know what was wrong with them?  Where would I get the medicine to give them?  How would I pay for the medicine if I could get it?      So, by doing this research paper, I hope to fill in some of the blanks in my mind about the details of being a veterinarian.  I also hope to get a clearer idea of what fields are available to specialize in, the average salary of a veterinarian, and if experience with animals makes a difference when it comes to finding a job in whichever field I decide to specialize. <br />

  20. 20. The Search -BODY OF YOUR I-SEARCH PAPER (FINAL DRAFT) DOE 1This is where you use the MLA format!<br />John Doe<br /> Mr. J. Marzo<br /> English I (CP)<br /> 16 June 2011 “Snips And Snails And Puppy Dog Tails”       That’s what a veterinarian takes care of!  If it breathes and you can see it, there is aveterinarian around somewhere that can doctor it!  I hope to someday be included in the list ofexceptional animal caregivers known as veterinarians.      The place I spent most of my time doing this research paper was the Cerritos Library locatedin the city of Cerritos, California.  The staff there was most supportive in helping me locate<br />research material.  I also received several pointers from the book by Ken Marconi, entitled “The<br />    <br />
  21. 21. DOE 2I-Search Paper”.  It suggested several different questions to ask myself about what I wanted outof my career choice.  I want to be able to support a family someday and give my children a fewof the luxury items that I never had as a child.  I want to be able to send them to Disney World if they wanted to go.  I want to have a nice house instead of a cramped, two-bedroom mobile home.  I want to be able to take my kids shopping for new school clothes at the beginning of the school year instead of waiting for the items to go on sale at KMART halfway through the fall.  I just want a better life for my family than the one I had growing up.  That is what I want from my career choice.  And I am willing to work harder than the average bear to accomplish my goal.     To become a veterinarian, you must go through eight years of college.  That is a long time to someone who is only a high school freshman!  I will be going to Cerritos Community for the first two years, then I will transfer to the University of Davis for two more years.  The next four years will be spent at a veterinary college.  That is, if I get lucky enough to get accepted.  I don’t know what I will do if I get turned down.  I guess I will apply to be a veterinary assistant somewhere.  <br />
  22. 22. The Search -BODY OF YOUR I-SEARCH PAPER DOE 3 <br /> The first question I wanted answered was “how much money does a veterinarian make?”  One of the librarians directed me to the Occupational Outlook Handbook 2010-11 Edition published by the Dept. of Labor Statistics Bureau.  It stated that…..       New veterinary medical college graduates who enter the       Federal Government usually start at $35,808…The average       annual salary for veterinarians in the Federal Government       in nonsupervisory, supervisory, and managerial positions       was $67,482 in 2001.  (276)       I still wanted a little more information on the salary issue, so I went to the “Encyclopedia of Careers and Vocational Guidance” 18th Edition, Vol.4. The salary range it gave was from $27,800 to $81,200.           O.K., maybe I was a little hasty in my choice of being a country vet!  But I still have a long way to go before I have to make a choice, so I can still explore many other options.  Maybe, in the end, it won’t be the money that determines my final choice.<br />
  23. 23. The Search -BODY OF YOUR I-SEARCH PAPERDOE 4     I have always had a high respect for veterinarians.  Vets have the ability to diagnose, treat, and most of the time, cure something that can only speak to them with their eyes, tails, and body actions.      Through this research, I found out that being a veterinarian doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be stuck in a little clinic, taking care of dogs and cats all day.  There are lots of different kinds of veterinarians.  For instance, I found that I could be a Veterinary Anatomist.  That is someone that studies the form and structure of animals.  Or I could be a Veterinary Epidemiologist.  That is someone that studies or treats skin diseases in animals.  This is only a couple of types of veterinarians.  For a more complete listing, you can look in the “Dictionary of Occupational Titles”, 4th Edition, Vol. 1.     I spoke with many people in the Los Angeles, California area, and asked them what kind of veterinarian this area needed.  All of them were quick to respond “one that will make house calls!”  In Los Angeles, California , they have just that.  In an article in the Long Beach Press Telegram, Aug.19, 2010, it tells us of “a veterinarian named (what else?) MacDonald, that runs Veterinary House-Call Services.”  MacDonald says, “By treating patients in their homes, I gain insight into health issues that might affect them” (MacDonald).     Also, many of the people that need house-calls for their pets, are elderly.  My grandmother lives in a Senior Citizen apartment complex.  There are quite a few of the residents that have dogs.  They say that they often have trouble getting to the vets office because of their own health issues.  So for tem, a mobile vet could possibly be the difference between the life and death of their pet.   <br />
  24. 24. The Search -BODY OF YOUR I-SEARCH PAPER DOE 5<br />The area of veterinary care I am most interested in right now, is the care of large animals, such as farm animals.  If I choose to be a large animal vet, I know I will be subjected to many different, sometimes unpleasant, working conditions.  The “Occupational Outlook Handbook” says….              Veterinarians in large animal practice also spend time              driving between their office and farms or ranches.  They              work outdoors in all kinds of weather, and have to treat              animals or perform surgery under less-than-sanitary              conditions.  When working with animals that are in pain,              veterinarians risk being bitten, kicked, or scratched (275).<br />
  25. 25. The Search -BODY OF YOUR I-SEARCH PAPER DOE 6<br /> My Interview:      I wanted to get some first-hand information from local veterinarian, Dr. Donald Gibson, D.V.M., so I took advantage of the college library once again and used their computer study lab to create an interview packet.  I had to decide which questions would benefit me the most to have answered.  And, once again, the I-Search Paper(Marconi) came into use.  It helped me come up with some great interview questions.  I had an appointment to interview Dr. Gibson today at 5p.m., but when I went to his office, he was still so busy that he did not have time for the interview.  I am supposed to go back tomorrow and pick up the completed interview packet.  <br />

  27. 27. The Search -BODY OF YOUR I-SEARCH PAPER DOE 8What I Discovered:      By doing the research for this paper, I have discovered that I want to be a veterinarian more than ever.  I now know I have more options available than just being a country vet.  I know I can make a good life for my family and possibly send my youngest son to college with the pay a veterinarian makes. But most important of all is the happiness and self-satisfaction I will have, knowing I finally made a dream come true for the little girl that cried over a baby bird. <br />
