I had an excellent experience volunteering! I was surprised at the number of spays/neuters done within the one week I volunteered there. The clinic worked quickly and efficiently. Another great thing was the amount of teamwork involved. The team accomplished so much is such short periods of time thanks to everyone's willingness to help each other, no matter what the task was. As a pre-veterinary student, I enjoyed being able to get so much hands-on experience especially in handling animals before and after surgeries (shaving, tattooing ears, giving injections, etc). It was also great watching many surgeries (not just spays and neuters). I was able to learn so much about veterinary medicine from the doctors and other veterinary students. Also, this was my first time traveling to Panama. I am so happy that I got to do some sightseeing while I volunteered! Great experience for future vets!
