Hello hello

Hi. I'm currently a student at Bel-Rea Institute for Veterinary Techs. I'm definitely interested in going into exotic and zoological medicine. Anyone got any advice for me? I'm trying to get all of my stuff settled before going into internship in nine months.

Thanx,
natolyi

hi, I'm a zoo vet tech, and I don't have too much to say other than most institutions look for people with experience in exotics. so I would just recommend getting as much as you can, whether it be through volunteering or internships, every bit helps. good luck
I'd say if you're more interested in zoos then intern at a zoo. If you're interested in exotic pets then intern at a clinic that specializes in exotics, not just one that sees them and other small animals. Also I second the volunteering thing while you are in school. It's not as much of a time commitment as a job would be while you are also in school, and it's sometimes easier to get a volunteer spot at a zoo/wildlife center than it is to get a job there. The more you do the better.
