Unforgettable experience

I chose to go through Loop Abroad on this Veterinary Service trip because at the time I was considering going to vet school. The trip let me dive right in to what that entails, pushing me way out of my comfort zone and into the reality of what I was considering. I am beyond thankful for the connections I made with other students and the veterinarians we learned from, the activities that were planned for us, and the safe environment Loop Abroad provided. Ultimately, the trip helped me realize vet school wasn’t for me, but I will never forget the experiences I had while I was in Thailand!! Highly recommend

Worth it

I traveled with Loop Abroad to Thailand two summers in a row and gained more experience and exposure in those two weeks than I had doing any internship or class previously. I had never traveled that far by myself before and did't know what to expect. The Loop Abroad staff was so well prepared and professional and put my nerves right at ease. I did not know any students prior to going on the trip but made lifelong friendships with people I still talk to to this day. Every bit of money you spend and every bit of discomfort and unfamiliarity you experience is worth it because you will never get another experience like the one they provide you.

Loop abroad

I had the great opportunity to travel through loop abroad and had an amazing experience. I was able to learn new skills from the classes I took, I was able to have one on one conversation with the veterinarians who were in charge of all the different classes we took and I was able to utilize those skills on real paitients. The staff was super friendly and helpful and if we needed anything at all they would do their best to help us get it. The cultural aspect of this trip was also really great. Our tour guides were very informative and very upbeat, passionate and excited about everything they were explaining to us about the culture, religion and lifestyle in Thailand. Over all I enjoyed my time with loop aborad studying and learning about another part of the world.

Deciding factor

Loop Abroad was absolutely amazing. I have always wanted to be a vet but never had the experience to see if I would really enjoy it. This program influenced my college and career path. After my trip with loop abroad and all the hands on experience I knew I wanted to be a vet. I would go back every year if I could.

Seriously a life-changing experience

I know it sounds cliche but i really can't think of another way to describe this trip. I knew I had been interested in working with wildlife in some capacity and was considering going to veterinary school, but this program really solidified my decision. Being able to make such an impact on the stray dogs & cats and learn so much about the welfare issues surrounding captive elephants was not only educational in the academic sense, but also made me really passionate about a career that's going to allow me to improve animal welfare in the future. Now I'm a third year veterinary student working on coming back to Thailand as soon as possible :)
