Summary of Internship
At my internship at the Ridgefield Park Animal Hospital, I was given the opportunity to experience the life of a veterinarian. Though I was not given a specific role as an intern, I gained knowledge through mostly observation. From dental scaling, ear cropping, neutering/spaying surgeries to microscoping staining, ultra sounds, laser therapy, and x-rays, I was exposed to the many different procedures my mentor completed. Also I was exposed to the various types of problems that the patients had and occasionally was given the opportunity to have hands-on duties. As an intern with no certification or experience at all in the field of animal science, I felt very privileged and extremely grateful for these opportunities. It is surely an internship I wish to experience again.
