Hello, I am currently trying to look for shadowing/ volunteering opportunities in a small animal clinic or shelter clinic. I have my Bachelors in Biology where I was focusing on going into the research field. I decided it was not for me and I want to pursue animal health. I am not too far from this field being that my education is Biology, but I am finding it difficult to transition myself into this new field. I decided Vet school is not for me currently as I should increase my experience in animal health. I have some experience in volunteering at an animal shelter, and I figured the next step was to start working in a clinic. I started applying as Vet assistant but have had no success so far. Maybe my next step would be to shadow/ volunteer in the clinic, but I am concerned that it will be a very very long process as I need something that is flexible with my work schedule. I greatly appreciate any recommendations, personal experience, or anything that will help me get more knowledge. Thanks!!!!!!!
