Internship at the Vet

Between 22 May and 2 June, GDQ High School offers a variety of internships for its students to take part in during the two week period between final exams and “fun week” (just to give you an idea of how fun it is, it contains Community Service Day). I chose to go to a veterinary clinic located relatively close to my house.

Firstly, let me say that I didn’t have particularly high expectations going in. However, it was amazing! From literally the starting moment there, I had something to do. On my first day, I held a dog while Blerina (the awesome vet) gave it a haircut. On day two, I was the one giving the haircut (albeit on her dog rather than a paying customer’s)! I think what surprised me the most was how hands on it was able to be. Originally, I had wanted to be placed perhaps in a hospital or human clinic. However, the disadvantage there is that it would not be possible for me to do anything other than watch since I’m an unqualified ginger 15-year-old with mediocre Albanian. Being at the vet, though, I was allowed to assist in multiple operations (albeit on either my cats or the vet’s dog) and as a result, I really enjoyed my time there!
