Certified Veterinary Technician (Current Employee) – Woodstock, IL – September 18, 2016
Great place to work. Love the experience and interesting cases that come in. The current team I work with couldn't be any better. The doctors are all great with clientele and very caring about the outcome of their patients. Very grateful to have the opportunity to work with such great people.
Work was enjoyable, coworkers and boss not so much
Kennel Tech (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 18, 2016
I loved the work, as will anyone who enjoys working with dogs and cats but in the year and a half I worked there, we hired somewhere around 7 new employees, all of which quit, and not without reason. The boss is an excellent veterinarian and I would never doubt her medical skills but she is very condescending and has little ability to correct without insulting her employees during the learning process. Having to go to work everyday after school during the month of my finals because all other kennel techs quit was very frustrating but she keeps her hospital in very clean conditions and is great at what she does. Not a job for the light of heart but very rewarding if you can manage her temperament.
Veterinary Technician and Receptionist (Former Employee) – Rocky Hill, CT – March 6, 2016
My typical day is spent assisting the main doctor. Client communications and book keeping. I am a very detailed person. i have a difficult time with the lack of management and the way other coworkers approach and speak to the main doctor/owner.
Manager (Current Employee) – Daniel Island, SC – October 12, 2015
Fast-paced veterinary practice, where I mastered my multi-tasking skills.I enjoyed strengthening my management and training skills. It was a challenge to keep the doctor's schedules full, yet flowing throughout each day. I enjoyed the interaction with the clients on a daily basis.
Voluntary (Former Employee) – Thomson, GA – July 27, 2015
I sat at the front desk answering the phone, brought the patient's pet to the front. I got the chance to examine surgery on the animals, such as, vasectomies on male animals. The co-workers at this clinical site were very cooperative and very adventurous. The hardest part at this clinical site was getting the mean animals in their cage. The most enjoyable part at this clinical site was getting to play with the new puppies that came in and getting to hold them.

I enjoyed helping the animals immensely, and supporting the owners as well. The hardest was seeing an animal and owners grief, when the animal was hurt or in pain or when they had to be euthanized.

Veterinary Technician Intern (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – August 22, 2013
I enjoyed taking care of the animals in the clinic every day. The hardest part of my job was learning how to deal with uncooperative animals. Eventually I became proficient at dealing with aggressive animals. I enjoyed working with all of my co-workers. Sometimes we would spend time together outside of work.
