Working at a vet clinic is what I recommend to anyone who wants to work with animals, either large or small. Sometimes working at a clinic is glorified on tv,even watching animal planet(which I love) shows alot of the bad things, but you still never see the really dirty parts, whether large or small. Cleaning cages, cleaning stalls is just a minor part, but nobody ever sees that. You don't see anyone cleaning up poop that is spread over a cage from an animal that doesn't have any manners and just poops and pees everywhere.Or one expresses its anal glands all over and you now stink like a dead skunk
Working with large animals is the same, they just make bigger messes.
But, working at a clinic also makes you take a realistic look at the world of animals, animals brought into you sick and hoping you can fix them Animals that have to be put down for illness or injury. The sad sad parts of working with animals. The patients where you are so angry at the owners because they just don't get it, don't get why their horse is all cut up because they didn't care about fences, or why their animal is really sick cause they have been doctoring it themselves with homemade remedies and now the cut is full of maggots and the animal is in pain. Or the idiots who let their dogs ride loose in the back of the truck, it falls out and the person behind them runs it over cause they can't stop fast enough. The horses that are brought in with broken legs or abcesses so bad their penis has to be amputated because "it was just a small abcess and I thought it would be okay."
However, you also get to see the good things, new born foals and calves. Injuries that you would think would never heal, a foal that goes to its new home, and somehow finds the one place in the metal corral that it can skin its face to the bone, comes in, gets stitches and is as good as new.
Working for a vet will take you along way into the animal world, you will either love it or hate it. Go for it and it might give you a start to a career.
