Vet Techs are critical to the day-to-day function of veterinary practices and play vital roles in preserving animal health and welfare. This week we are celebrating our Veterinary Technicians as well as our students in training.
We asked our Vet Tech instructor, Bianca Graves a couple of questions:
- What attracted you to this field?
I love helping animals. I get to be involved in animals’ lives from preventative medicine to making them better when they are sick. I also get to help educate owners in making good choices for their pets.
- What made you decide to teach?
As Veterinary Technicians/ Nurses, we are natural teachers. We have to help teach/guide owners on continued care at home for their pets. I was also involved in training new associates at my animal hospital. It was a natural transition in going into education.
- What do you like best about teaching?
I love the fresh enthusiasm that my students have. They remind me to stay humble and keep my thirst for knowledge. I learn from them as much as they learn from me.
