I usually started my day by preparing the surgical suite for use, then I would monitor the patient's blood pressure, O2 absorption and body temperature and I also would clip their toenails while they were under. I cleaned the clinic, kennels, restrained animals and restocked exam rooms. The most enjoyable part of working there was seeing all the different animals, working with them and the clinical educational aspect. The hardest part of the job was when an ill animal had to be put down. It was always difficult but to know the animal was given a painless death was always comforting.
Great first hand experiences in the field of my studies
