This week I will be working as a Veterinary Assistant at Hespeler Animal Hospital in Cambridge, Ontario. I will get to help hold animals for exams and treatment, assist with procedures such as dentistry, surgery and radiology (with a lot of supervision, of course!) and perhaps help out the receptionists as well.
I had no idea where I would be working up until Thursday of last week. I had various offers though nothing seemed to really stick with me until I received the offer from the Animal Hospital. It is going to be a very interesting week and I am really excited to learn more about how things work in an animal hospital as it is an environment I have never previously been exposed to.
