Depending on the clinic, you may find yourself handling birds and ferrets at different times. Are you up to the challenge? Talk about your experience with pets other than your typical furry friends. You also may want to find out more about your clients and what to expect. Do some research on the clinic. Usually a vet's website will show a list of animals they typically treat. If you don't have experience with exotic animals, find out more about some of the differences in how you will handle them. What are some of the similarities? You may need to be much more careful with a bird than large dog.
