RAVS is an opportunity to take myself out of my comfort zone, which is the best place to keep learning. On my 2 trips so far, I not only cemented specific skills such as performing physical exams and increasing my comfort with anesthetic monitoring, but also increased my confidence to take on new challenges with grace. ~Anna Sarfaty, Class of 2017, Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine
In February of 2016, HSVMA-RAVS staff and volunteers will join an elite group from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, HSVMA Student Chapter, traveling to northern California for 2 days of field clinics serving the Hoopa Valley Tribe. Our team will provide wellness care to more than 300 animals in this short time.
In addition to wellness services, RAVS’ volunteers will care for animals with a wide range of health concerns including puppies suffering from parvovirus and distemper infections and older animals suffering from multiple infirmities. While providing this care, our volunteers and staff will be educating the family on animal care and public health, helping to make the community a better place for the animals and the people of Hoopa.
