Has anyone had any luck tying to shadow a vet tech in a veterinary practice? I work days full time (non-veterinary related) and go to school part time distance learning program at San Juan. I have gone to fifteen different vets trying to allow me shadow so that I can get some experience. I can only shadow at night and on weekends. Daily practices tell me nothing goes on on Saturdays .. try ER hospital. I try the ER and they tell me try a day practice. I'm trying to get something set up now so that in my next semester when I need 10 clinical hours I will be able to get it at the place I am shadowing. I'm starting to believe I have made a bad choice and should just quit the vet tech program. If I can't get a non paying slot how are you supposed to find a paying one?
