By giving back to the community, it helps us develop in so many different ways. Our trip to the Southside Animal Hospital was one of intense observation, enrichment, and one of great opportunity. We not only got to see procedures and processes up close, but we got to participate in them which was, even more, eye opening and beneficial. All the way from a butt holder during an eye and dental procedure, to an air bag squeezer, we all got to participate in various ways which not only allowed us to give back and help but it helped us see these necessary career skills and help develop our own. Even though none of us aspire to be veterinarians, it was beneficial in so many ways.
