Mosiah Rios is working an internship at All About Pets in Provo. Rios is very active with the animals. He helps with animal checkups, exams, and dental aid. Not all of Rios’s duties are so glamorous though. He also has the responsibilities of cleaning up after surgeries, cleaning kennels, and cleaning up animal waste.
Rios’ love of animals is what led him to do this internship. Not only does he love the animal part of this internship, he is fascinated by the medical side as well. Rios had the amazing opportunity to watch a C-section and assisted in cleaning up the newborn puppies. His favorite part of that experience was seeing the mother interact with her newborns.
“It has been beneficial. I would recommend it because there is a lot of interactions and new experiences,” said Rios.
Rios is very interested in this line of work. He plans on attending Southern Utah University and major in animal science in order to become a veterinarian. Rios’ love of animals will help him become a great veterinarian that people will trust.
