I have a friend who had a dog that got very sick and died during the summer. She went to the vet and they said that because the dog had been eating grass and other leaves and other things throughout the year and just got sick the summer when it was warmer, they assumed the vet tech would not be able to save the dog. I think I would have laughed at that.
The vet tech that our friend attended paid more than us to attend the same veterinary school. What she paid was the difference between the price of an orthopedic collar and a medical collar.
The vet tech that our friend attended paid less than us. We were glad she did because we were not exactly sure what to do.
Although she had the exact same name and class, the vet tech that our friend attended did not have a medical or orthopedic collar. She had a medical collar, but the collar was for her feet not her head. We didn’t actually know what to do but felt like we should at least keep an open mind until we found out what to do with it.
The vet tech that our friend attended was actually our friend’s friend, and when she asked for a medical collar she was being a little too pushy, which was fine because he knew what he was talking about. We did not really know what to do but felt like we should at least keep an open mind until we found out what to do with it.
Vet technology is one of those things that is so strange it makes you nervous, but in all fairness its not that different from most other tech. The difference is that it is for the purpose of helping the animal. In other words, the vet techs in this game aren’t just walking over their animal, bringing them snacks and water, and keeping them clean.
I agree with this, but think we should just be careful about doing anything that could be construed as a violation of animal cruelty laws. The reason I say this is because most of the jobs in Vet tech have very little actual responsibility (and thus are really more about the paycheck) but do serve to provide animals with medical care.
The vet techs are a highly paid and well-respected group of people. Their work is extremely important and they’re not just walking over their animals, bringing them snacks and water, and keeping them clean; they’re actively doing so. They are responsible for providing medical care to their animals.
This is a good thing, since animals that are sick can easily be put down by humans. However, it can also be a bad thing when we’re not paying attention to our pets and they’re not being taken care of properly.
When we hire vet techs, we expect them to be properly caring for your animals. That includes making sure they get proper veterinary care and medications when they need it. When we dont or dont get it, we expect them to be fired. They are responsible for providing veterinary care for all your animals.
