What Do Vet Techs Really Do?

Most of you who read my blog know that I am a Veterinary Technician if you are just joining in today I currently am employed at a small animal clinic in south eastern Wisconsin. I have been a Veterinary Technician for 25 years with 13 of those years being at my current job. I’m not a hoarder but I always have a few animals living with me. I have one cat MK who I saved from the brink of death because of my dog Gambler a Chesapeake Bay Retriever who are now best buds. I have 2 other Chesapeake Bay Retrievers Nellie and Glory (mom and daughter), Glory who is expecting a litter of puppies in less than 3 weeks. I have a pen full of chickens, ducks and pheasants. I couldn’t see myself in any other career.

Andrea from veterinarytechnicianguide.com  sums up the life of a Veterinary Technician really well through this infographic.

  1. Great info! I think vet techs and vets are very special people. I wanted to be a vet when I was growing up but didn’t think I could handle euthanizing an animal! I’m too emotional!


  2. Many people don’t realize just how important our furkids vet techs really are to our pets and us. To me, having a very special friend who is a vet tech. they are the nurses. Frontline, doing the most for their patients and their families. I also think it takes a very special kind of person to do the job and to do it with love and kindness. Bless you JoAnn for what you do for you patients and their families~


  3. Great infographic. Though I like our vet, I love one of his two vet techs – and so do my dogs. Without her we would probably change vets!


  4. Thank you all for your positive comments! There is no question having a good vet tech and a vet in general can make all the difference in a pet’s life (and pet parent’s too!).

    JoAnn, thank you for taking the time to share this post I loved reading your intro! 🙂


  5. Hi Y’all!

    One day I went for a vet appointment and a new assistant came out to get me. I was so used to the girl that had always been there that I didn’t want to go. They had to push my butt to get me into the back with the new girl.

    We notice you. Get comfy with you. You hug us, kiss us and give us treats. Havin’ the same tech is very reassuring to us, or at least to me.

    Y’all come on by,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
