The Importance of the Veterinary Technician

While there is some validity to the “Oh, you’re a vet tech? You must play with puppies and kittens all day” statement, what we do is so much more than just “playing with puppies.” If that was all my day looked like, it would be a walk in the park.

I AM an anesthesiologist, a x-ray technician, a maid, a janitor, a surgery assistant, a loving hand, a pharmacist, a teacher, a mortician, a shoulder to cry on, a friend to cry with, a sucker for a furry face, a lover of all pets, a face to lick, a midwife, a dental hygienist, a mediator, a vet’s best friend, a pet’s best friend, a babysitter, a physical therapist, a playmate, a chew toy, a protector.

I CAN make the pain go away, save a life, see what’s wrong, ease a mind, fill a drug order, give kisses and get kisses.

I HAVE a strong stomach, a big heart, a thoughtful mind, the ability to fight through pain, the most profound love for all creatures.
