”This internship was the start of my dream to be a traveling vet one day. I got the experience of a lifetime and made amazing friends. I got to assist with consults, surgeries, performing ultrasounds, x rays, bloodwork, urine work, and other lab tests. I was responsible for administering medications and injections and taking care of in-patients. This role allowed me to be more adaptable and really highlighted my problem-solving skills. My most memorable moment was participating in my first surgery ever! Literally everything I learnt I can now use towards my goal.”
