PHOTO STORY: Day in the life of a veterinarian


Walk into a veterinary clinic and you normally wouldn't expect sheep, goats and horses to be treated alongside dogs and cats.

But for Dr. Mark Besancon, that is just a typical day at Crossroads Veterinary Clinic. Besancon said he opened Crossroads in 2009 because Victoria needed a vet clinic that served domestic animals and the large number of farm animals in the community.

Besancon's work environment is one where goats lie on operating tables as beagles get ultrasounds in the next room.

Besancon is passionate about veterinary medicine and says no two days are alike in his clinic.
