Volunteer work-experience is a requirement for students applying to veterinary medicine and veterinary technician schools. Our clinic has hosted student volunteers since opening and some have gone on to work for us. Our volunteers learn how the clinic is run and maintained and get to see first-hand what happens behind the scenes. Their duties include cleaning, helping maintain our facility, assisting with reception/office tasks, restocking the mobile clinic, washing surgical instruments, wrapping surgery packs and supplies for autoclaving, and assisting technicians/assistants and veterinarians with patient care. Whenever possible, we take the time to educate our volunteers about interesting cases, show them x-rays and samples under the microscope. They may also have the opportunity to watch surgery in the field. Those interested are asked to submit an electronic application/resume; Attention: Marilyn Ireland email@example.com
Do animals need deworming several times a year?
Not always! We recommend testing before treating.
