Working alongside experienced vets in the daytime, with plenty of people to ask for help and advice. Additional training will also be given – not just in the clinical work, but the practicalities of veterinary practice too. The out of hours work then complements the day work to give a good basis of inpatient care and emergencies. More experienced staff are always on back up, so you are not “on your own”
