Q:

What is a kennel attendant?

A:

Kennel attendants work in veterinarians' offices and animal laboratories as assistants who help to care for the animals. Common workplace duties include feeding the animals, preparing exam rooms or laboratory spaces, assisting in examinations, holding animals during examinations and cleaning cages, kennels and other animal holding areas.

In some situations, kennel attendants may be required to record animal behaviors, monitor recovery from illness or injury and perform animal care tasks, such as inserting or removing catheters, drawing blood and collecting urine or excrement samples. Kennel attendants also groom animals, trim nails and treat animals to keep away or remove pests such as fleas and ticks.
