Online Vet Service : AskAVetQuestion

Any pet owner would know (or soon learn) that visits to the vet are quite expensive. Each visit may cost hundreds of dollars; nevertheless it is necessary when seeking help for their pet.

Recently my dog started acting strange after a few minutes of running/exercise. She'd start to walk funny (sideways) and simply fall over as she was walking, this only occurred after exercise, and she resumed normality within an hour.

This condition didn't seem high risk, and so I googled around to see what I could find. This is when I started stumbling onto websites where Veterinarians were giving advice for a small fee.

University Acceptance!

I'm so ecstatic right now, as I just got the admission to the second half of the program I want! I'm hoping to get a dual degree which explains the 'half'. Extremely likely that I will be going to the UWO!

Almost Died

So today, I truly experienced what it felt to go into aftershock. I was driving on the highway at a fair speed, slightly on the high side when I tried to change lanes. I think I must have only checked my blindspot without checking the side mirror, and was not aware that a car had sped up on the other lane.

Which Marks Count ?

Throughout high school I feel like I was always unsure of which marks mattered the most. Of course people will say to work hard each year, and to develop the right skills but I want to let people know the actual story. What is being looked at, and what isn't.

But first of all, university applications throughout Ontario are done through a website known as OUAC. Your high school will provide you with a Username and Password (that should be confidential) and it is through this site that you will apply to and accept/reject your universities.

Essentially the marks that you get in Gr.9 and Gr.10 mean very little in the Canadian system. They do not appear on OUAC, and as such the universities will never see these marks. You can slack, do well, whatever as long as you step it up in Gr. 11 and Gr.12.
