Throughout this year, the club has been learning about the requirements and education it takes to become a Veterinary Assistant. They have experienced interaction with pets and given physicals to local therapy dog, George. The club collected old newspapers and presented them to the Animal Hospital for their daily use.
Alyssa Wilson is a Licensed Veterinary Assistant at Somerset Animal Hospital, and she graduated from Morehead State University. She talked with our students about college and education, gave a tour of the facility, and allowed the students to work with a few of the on staff animals at the clinic.
