    I've been a registered veterinary technician

    for three months now, and although it's not in the field I want to make a career in, it's incredibly awesome. I trim nails, bathe and feed animals, give vaccines, assist the vet in surgery, and perform euthanasia if necessary. Working with animals has taught me patience, and I'm...

    I just started work for my first full day today.

    I have a super stuffy nose, however I have no mucus, just inflammation. I think that I may be allergic to dogs as towards the end of the day along with the stuffy nose, sneezing, and itchiness, I developed hives where I was holding a cat. I really do love my job and I know I'm...

    How Do You Deal ?

    I am starting my classes this July, but I am bombarded with everyone reminding me of the sad part of the job: putting a pet to sleep. How do you deal with it? What do you do when you feel like crying alongside the owner?

    I used to get so emotional

    when it came to euthanasia. Now I've learned how to set my feelings aside and accept that in most cases it is needed. It's still hard but it does get easier. Still hard to see a grown man cry over is loyal companion.
