About Me


My name is Michelle Nyberg and I am currently a freshman at the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse. I am majoring in Pre-Veterinary and Biology. I created this website for my Organismal Biology course.

Ever since I was young I have wanted to be a veterinarian. I have always loved animals and wanted to help care for them. I chose the dog because as a vet I will be working very closely with this animal. The dog is also one of my favorite animals. I grew up with one dog from the time I was born until I was about 13. My dog, a Golden retriever mixed with Irish setter, was named Shana. She was the best dog I could ever ask for. When I was younger I would always be examining her and trying to diagnose her like a vet would. Dogs are common pets, but not a lot of people know scientific facts about them. I learned a lot more about the domestic dog from creating this website and hopefully you learned just as much.


If you have any questions or comments about my website, please feel free to email me at Nyberg.mich@students.uwlax.edu
