Student input

Tristan Kitchel: “My time at Cass County Animal Hospital has been better than I could’ve hoped for. Since the first day there, it has been a welcoming atmosphere as the whole staff has taken me under their wing. They have all taught me numerous skills, techniques, and treatments for animals as well as conditions and illnesses the animals are going through. My time there has only made me want to pursue this career even more. The experience, incredible employees, and satisfaction of helping an animal have made me very grateful to have been placed at the Cass county Animal Hospital for my internship.”
