We asked Dr. Arnet why she chose to be a veterinarian and this is what she said:
"It may sound naive but I never considered any other profession. As a little girl, I begged my parents for a pet-- cat, dog, goldfish, anything. I finally got my wish. First, a tiny, adorable kitten named Ned joined our family. Next, came a horse, Willie. He is still a member of our family, just on a bigger scale, and he is not allowed into the house. I'm privileged and honored to be the voice for those who can't speak for themselves, or at least not in so many words. There is nothing I'd rather devote my life to. My job is to help pets and their owners through the good, the bad and the ugly. I truly enjoy building relationships and helping animals through all life stages. My job isn't always easy, but it is deeply rewarding"
