Kings Park Animal Hospital - (Marissa Ruppel)

"I would strongly encourage anyone who wants to work with animals in the future to do an internship at an animal hospital. At the Kings Park Animal Hospital I learned so much because the staff was very patient and willing to teach me. Some advice I would say is to never give up and feel like you can't do something, because I felt that way at the beginning of the internship and stuck with it and gained so much experience. I would also say to not be afraid to ask questions, because it is better to double check something than to do something wrong that could even be life-threatening for an animal. Interning at an animal hospital is a fun, educational and rewarding experience that I would recommend to anyone interested in veterinary medicine."
