Hours can be documented both electronically or manually recorded in a notebook or binder. The VetPAC Portfolio Builder is a great resource to electronically save and categorize hours. Please use this link to view the VetPAC Porfolio Builder.
According to the NCSU-CVM website, “Animal Experience” includes all other animal-related experiences. This includes working with livestock, breeding or showing dogs, employment at a zoo, aquarium or pet shop, equestrian activities, and volunteering at an animal shelter/rescue. This does not include experience gained from owning pet. These experiences are evaluated much the same as Veterinary Experience with a duration of at least 400 hours being highly recommended, and there is preference for having experience in 3 different areas (i.e. small animal, large animal, equine, research, exotics). For more information, please visit NCSU-CVM’s website via this link.
