They help the other team members when asked to fill prescriptions, hold animals for exams and procedures, set up labratory tests, and start their education and skills training for more advanced positions. We value individuals that are hard working and self-motivated, identifying areas where their assistance is needed and stepping in when they are able. Kennel Attendants are typically part time and/or seasonal workers so it's a great introduction into veterinary medicine for high school and college students during breaks from school.
