Kennel Assistant

Kennel Assistants serve a vital function for pet’s care, and are needed to assist in many areas of the hospital. This includes keeping the kennel area cleaned, providing food and water, and grooming pets. Kennel Assistants also keep records of the pet’s diet, behavior, physical condition, and monitor any changes in the animal’s health.
