the vet, rvt, Pre-vet & assistant student experience that will change your life: introducing the cuban experience workshop

This is a concentrated one week program, designed to fit into your school schedule. You will learn in Cuba with a Vet or RVT, who will teach you diagnostic, handling, behaviour, nutrition and career skills. You will be making a direct impact to the dogs and cats you work with.

You will learn or assist in cytology, urinalysis, blood draws, pharmacy, and assist in spay, neuter or injury procedures. You will stay at an amazing all-inclusive resort, and will be immersed in real Cuban life and culture.

You will have the opportunity to go on fun excursions (e.g. trip to Havana, snorkelling and photography opportunities).

I've been on countless vacations, but I can 100% say that this one topped them all. We not only got to relax on the beach, but we also got to go out in the real streets of Cuba to explore, learn and help the vets with animals that needed treatment. My favourite part was befriending the resort cats and eventually capturing them to get them neutered/spayed. When we released them back on the resort, we all just sat there amazed and immobilized with the behaviours we were witnessing. Nothing could replace that feeling, other than going back and doing it all over again!
