Clinical Assistant- Surgical Recovery

Save to Favorites

Marion County Dog Shelter

Volunteers in this program will have an opportunity to play a vital role in helping clinic patients, and staff who service them, in the post spay/neuter surgical recovery process. Volunteers in this program fulfil a wide variety of needs within the clinic- but the main focus of MCDS volunteers is: to assist the Veterinarian and Veterinarian Technician in the care of animals in the surgical recovery process, to prevent complications following surgery by monitoring vital signs and assisting in each pet's recovery to a conscious state, to maintain a constant flow of animals in and out of the spay/neuter operating room.
As a Volunteer in the Post- surgical recovery program you will be helping staff and the animals tremendously. The experience you gain and contribute will be exciting and educational. Please listen to staff members around you and ask questions at any time. Communication is extremely important, especially in the hospital which is a high pressure, sensitive area. MCDS Staff members are in the hospital to prep and recover the pets alongside you.
