Veterinary Receptionists answer phones, schedule appointments, collect payments and file. They assist clients with their pets in and out of appointments. Veterinary Receptionists communicate client and patient information to the veterinarian or veterinary technician
to aid in patient care and adequate client communication.
VETERINARY TECHNICIAN/VETERINARY ASSISTANT:
Veterinary Technicians and Veterinary Assistants observe the behavior and condition of animals. They assist in providing routine preventative care and client education, along with emergency first aid. They prepare and assist in surgery, as well as take care of patients recovering from surgery. They perform a multitude of testing, along with blood draws and some injections. They clean and maintain the facility equipment and
maintain supplies. They also go along with the veterinarian and assist with ambulatory services and procedures.
Groomers clean, trim and style animals' fur, as well as clip or grind their nails and clean their ears. Extra fun things they do are toenail painting, adding in a bright color, and putting in an extension or feather in the fur. Groomers at times find underlying conditions uncovered by grooming. Our groomers can also tailor or recommend a service that would best suit each pet’s specific needs.
