Making Pet Patients Comfortable
A vet tech is typically the first person to see a patient when they visit our practice. Vet techs listen to clients’ concerns and make sure they get the help they need as quickly as possible.
In addition to taking care of clients and pet patients, veterinary techs must remain calm and professional while dealing with multiple tasks and daily interruptions. That’s why VetMed makes sure that those who take on one of our veterinary technician jobs can deal with emergencies while providing leadership and support to other staff members.
