We have really enjoyed having Rachel working with us. Rachel has been studying for the past 2 years to become a veterinary technician. As part of their training, technician students must attend a placement for a minimum of 40 hours before graduating in order to gain valuable hands-on experience. Instead of the usual 4 week placement before graduation, Rachel has been with us one day a week during each of her semesters. She just finished a two week stretch and now it’s on to exams. While she was here she assisted with X-rays, drawing blood samples, anesthesia, nursing and lab work. She was also Parker’s primary care giver. She did an awesome job with him giving him the daily support care that he needs.
