Must have a license or certification to work as a Veterinary Technician and a minimum of an Associate’s Degree.
The will to grow and learn (no day is the same!)
Ability to hold great conversation with almost complete strangers (a.k.a. an out-going person who loves people!)
Ability to perform venipuncture, place IV catheters, read fecal samples and ear discharge cytologies, administer anesthesia, take radiographs, perform dental cleanings, etc. (a.k.a. the really fun stuff!)
