SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) So I'm sorry if this has been addressed elsewhere but I couldn't really find a thread with the exact answer I was looking for Anyway I was wondering if it was a legitimate requirement for a licensed veterinarian to be present in order to classify experience as "veterinary experience." I'm currently volunteering at a wildlife rehab facility in their hospital under a very experienced vet tech. They do have an actual wildlife vet who is present occasionally but definitely not most of the time I'm there. The volunteer work includes cage cleaning, weighing, bandaging, injections, medication, cleaning wounds, etc. Basically I do much more hand on and have lots more interesting veterinary experiences here than I do shadowing at a SA clinic. So basically I was wondering if I would have to classify this as animal rather than veterinary experience simply because a vet isn't always present. Thanks to anyone who can help clear this up for me!
