Able to help people and their beloved pets under a harsh work environment.
Pros: we had a break room
Cons: they took away our paid vacations and healthcare benefits when bought out.
This company was ran by money driven owners with a horrible financial adviser. Rude and uncaring of their staff. A typical day consisted of me caring for hospitalized animals assisting the doctor in and out of surgery, checking patients into rooms, making prescriptions going over estimates with clients in the exam rooms, radiology and performing blood work on pets as well as placing and removing IV catheters, dental hygiene on cats and dogs, sedating pets and preparing them for surgery. Assisting the receptionist at the front desk and at times being the receptionist. Cleaning and laundry. Hardest part was getting in trouble for laundry not being caught up while I was up to my eyeballs in patient care. My co workers were great, we all stuck together as a team and supported one another. I would say my most enjoyable part of the job was seeing our patients come back in to our hospital healthy for a recheck with the doctor. And then watching them leave with their happy owners. Management did the best he could under harsh and unpredictable ownership.
