Good Veterinarians Have Great Vet Techs
When most people think of animal hospitals or veterinary clinics, they think of the veterinarians themselves. However, our furry little friends have a lot of love for veterinary technicians, and so do we. Here are some of the reasons veterinary technicians are so important.
They Make the Veterinarian’s Job Easier
While veterinarians have to go through more schooling than veterinary technicians, they're both highly trained professionals. But most importantly, veterinary technicians are a great resource to veterinarians because they can help with many day-to-day duties.
These duties include things like drawing blood, helping with surgery, and giving medications to the animals. This makes veterinarians' job easier, allowing them to focus on making a plan to provide the best treatment for your pets.
A Calming Force
When a pet is in a veterinary clinic, they can be a bit confused about their surroundings. This is why pets often get scared when receiving treatment, leading them to growl, bite or scratch the people who are trying to help this.
Knowing that this is a likelihood more than a possibility, veterinary technicians choose to go to school to put themselves in these situations. They care so much about making sure pets are healthy that they don't mind a bite or scratch here and there.
And no matter how many times a veterinary technician has been bitten, they'll always show the same level of compassion and care for every pet they deal with.
They're Great With Clients
One of the duties veterinarian technicians often handle for veterinarians is communicating with clients. That means that they have to be great at dealing with both humans and animals—and they are.
Veterinarian technicians are always there to reassure pet owners and keep them in the loop. They'll work with you to make sure you know what's going on with your pet, what your treatment options are, and that your furry friend is in good hands.
Like everybody, veterinarian technicians deal with their own problems, yet they remain a friendly face that greets every animal and customer that walks through the door. This is all because they love pets and their owners.
Next time you take your pet to the vet, make sure to give a big thank you to your veterinarian technician while you're at it.
