Companion Animal Clinic - (Melanie Pare)

Location:  Augusta, Maine

"My main tasks were to set up appointments, draw up vaccines, run heartworm tests and fecal floats, hold animals for blood draws and exams, develop x-rays, as well as perform many other tasks when asked...My whole experience as a vet assistant, for the most part, was very enjoyable and I loved the work that I did.  I can definitely say I had fun working with all the animals and getting to see so many different breeds that I hadn't before....After complete the internship I quickly realized that this is something that I want to pursue."
