mertzlufft Pittsfield Veterinary Hospital - (Laura Mertzlufft)

"This past summer, I worked part-time as a Veterinary Technician Intern at Pittsfield Veterinary Hospital/The Animal Emergency Rescue of the Berkshires. It was a wonderful learning experience, as I had never before worked in this setting. I learned how to help perform a variety of procedures and observed how to treat many health problems in companion animals. I found that it's often easier working with pets than their owners! My coworkers had a great sense of humor and I was impressed by their knowledge base and technical skills. One thing to note is that this internship is not for everyone because it wasn't very structured, and the fast-paced nature of the emergency veterinary hospital was sometimes overwhelming. I would certainly recommend interning here if you are serious about pursuing a veterinary or related degree."
