I work 8 am to 7 pm five days per week. I love my job. No other job has given me the satisfaction and constant training that I need as being a veterinary technician/doctor. Being a veterinary technician is hard work and long hours, but I look forward to going to work each day. We not only treat small animals but also some exotics. to pocket pets as well. I decided to be a veterinary technician after I had worked as a doctor in a 24 hours clinic in Italy. The pace at a hospital is fast and you never know what is going to walk in the door next, not even to mention what critical cases you already have in the hospital that you have to constantly monitor, therefore triage is very important.
The duties of my typical day are: treatments, laboratory, surgical care, nursing care, paperwork, xrays, answer the phone.
This might sound overwhelming for someone not in the veterinary field, but it is worth.
