While IVHQ has a range of projects working with animals around the world, this is a rare opportunity for veterinary volunteers to get tangible experience working in a practicing veterinary clinic.
Volunteer vets work closely with local veterinary staff, observing procedures and practices, making this a great opportunity to learn and gain hands-on experience. You can assist with operations, vaccinations, treatments and examinations, provide general care to animals and assist with the day-to-day operations of the clinic.
You’re also able to take part in outreach, traveling to farms for treatments to livestock and other animals.
You must be either studying at least pre-veterinary medicine or be fully qualified as a vet, and you’ll need to bring your own scrubs. Volunteers should expect to be working with limited resources, which may also mean treatment options and some medication may not be available.Apply now
