Veterinary Students needs participants with service animals

Post by Morganm5 » 2 months ago

I am veterinary student at Colorado State University. I am doing a video project on different identites and what their animals mean to them. I’m hoping to get someone that is willing to particpate that has a service animal. Ideally I would like to talk to two people one that provides more physical supprt (opening doors etc) and another that has an emotional support animal. This is meant to serve as an educational and awareness opportunity. In school we learn a lot about medicine but neglect to recognize the differences in human/animal relationships. This will be posted on our schools facebook page for our diversity, multi-cultural, and inclusion club.

Some example questions would be
What is your relationship to your service animal?
How does your service animal provide for you?
How do you pay for veterinary bills and do you have limits on what type of services you would allow?

I want to stress that this will be done professionally and respectfully. I believe that its critical veterinarians understand these relationships. Also this will be on video - but your identity will be protected. I may contact you with follow up questions if my classmates have any.
