What I liked
I love how hands-on the experience is. As a surgery volunteer at the BVSPCA, I get to assist in the Animal Health Center to serve by preparing surgery packs for spay, neuter, amputation, etc. procedures, clean and sterilize surgical equipment, extubate animals, administer post-op vaccinations, and promote animal welfare. The opportunity to lend my services there has not only increased my knowledge of the veterinary field and helped me establish connections with professionals within the field, but it has also granted me a greater appreciation for all the work that goes into being a veterinarian. It has sparked my intellectual curiosity about veterinary medicine as a whole and has increased my excitement about my chosen field. Also, I find it admirable that the BVSPCA performs these surgeries at low cost so as to make the services it's offering more affordable to the general public.
