Some people don't know what a Veterinary Nurse is or what our job entails. Let me just give you a breakdown! I AM an anaesthesiologist, a radiography technician, a theatre assistant and scrub nurse, I can perform minor surgery, I am a pharmacist, a lab technician, a phlebotamist, a dental hygienist, a physical therapist, a midwife, a surrogate, a teacher, a groomer, a nutritionist, a receptionist, a telephonist, a reassuring ear on the end of the phone, provide a loving hand, a shoulder to cry on, a friend to cry with, a sucker for a furry face, a face to lick, a vet’s best friend, a pet’s best friend, a babysitter, a mother, a maid, a playmate, a chew toy, a protector, a feeder and a cleaner. I CAN make the pain go away, save a life, see what’s wrong, clean anything, ease a mind, fill a drug order, show the right way, end suffering, give kisses, get kisses, clean teeth, & bring someone to do the right thing. I HAVE a strong stomach, endured countless scars, scratches, and bites, cried with a stranger, cried into the fur of too many lifeless bodies, a big heart, a thoughtful mind, the strength to do the right thing even when it hurts, the ability to fall in love in 5 seconds, and the deepest love for all creatures.
I work days, I might work nights, I work weekends. I hate it when I’m asked, why did you not become a Vet? I am not 'JUST' a Veterinary Nurse. Fellow veterinary friends copy and paste this to help raise awareness of our awesome profession.
