At Cal Poly Pomona I have been trained in restraint, knowing vital signs, basic animal diseases and the care of animals. At the first small animal hospital I interned at, they began training me as a technician after seeing how well I responded to the fast paced environment. They allowed me to draw blood, make surgical packs, administer fluids, restraint, and basic bloodwork. At the equine hospital, I mostly was involved in neonatal fluid administration, milking mares and foal nutrition, taking blood, restraint, basic anesthesia and basic bloodwork. At the last small animal hospital, I was mostly involved in shadowing veterinarians, taking vitals, setting up machines and surgeries, drawing up vaccines, and assisting technicians with restraint or other procedures.
