Excerpt from the Show – SuperVet Techs
Being a registered vet tech is not for sissies! Every vet tech needs 3 essential attributes; a strong stomach, a big heart and a keen sense of humour. Man, if you can’t laugh at the absurdity of some situations, you are dead in the water.
But, if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind their hands looking like roadmaps from scratches and bites and not just from clients who get an estimate, or thinks nothing about owning 3 cats, 2 dogs, 1 rabbit and 5 gerbils, all rescue cases, or spend more time at work on your hands and knees than……..well other professions, or if you can pick up a piece of poop with your bare hands without thinking about it, you probably have what it takes to be a vet tech. But what makes a veterinary technician a SuperVet Tech?
Well look at Batman, he doesn’t have superpowers, but just like him we’ve got the skills to operate the fancy gadgets and machines. Heck, we do lasers, X-rays, ultrasounds, cat scans.
And just like Spiderman’s and his Spidey sense. We have something I like to call “SuperSenses”. First off, there’s common sense, to singlehandedly fight chaos when all hell breaks loose in the treatment room.
Then there’s the sense of sight, to be able to see when an animal is in pain and needs medication. Or the sense of smell, to be able to detect kidney failure on a cat’s breath. Or the sense of hearing, to be able to hear a heart murmur on a little kitten, or the sense of taste, …… honestly, haven’t I grossed you out enough already? And most importantly, the sense of touch. To touch the heart of a grieving owner and know just the right thing to say. That, my friends takes super sensitivity.
No, with the combination of our experience, skills and SuperSenses, the truth is, all Registered Veterinary Technicians are SuperVet Techs. And you don’t need a cape and funny boots to prove that.
