Hello guys, I’m a Pre-Veterinary student now entering my third year of college, and I’m still feeling my way out in what I want to do.
My main focus right now is either large animal vet work (like with horses and barn animals) or working in a lab where I can possibly make or test medicine for animals, and observe bacteria and viruses more closely.
That being said, I have no experience in a lab, but I would like to get started.
For those who work in a lab, how did you get up to that point? Shadowing? Volunteering? Technical classes?
Where can I go to get any experience?
I am going to mention that for my first two years, I’ve been hunting down the head of the lan specimens, but she was too busy to answer me. So not sure if my school would be the best for looking for that type of oppurtunity. So anywhere else? Hospital? An actual lab company?
Also, if there are any lab techs or lab vets lurking, can you tell me of your experience?
