Day in the life of a Veterinary Nurse; they don’t just hold animals anymore.

Our day starts at 7:30 am checking in surgical patients and tending to hospital patients.  

We are the ones that perform dental cleaning on your pets, take the radiographs, monitor anesthesia, check blood pressure and oxygen levels, recover patients after surgery, and write up the files, check the charges, fill the prescriptions, fill out lab work orders, run the doctors schedule and keep them on time, squeeze in that late appointment that is now going into our lunch hour.

Because we love our job

 We are the ones who take the histories for each appointment, educate clients about administering medication, give vaccinations, oh yes and we are the ones who get bit by patients even after the owners tell us their pet won’t bite. 

Because we love our job

Lunch; we don’t get lunches did I forget to mention that? During our lunch time we are catching up on our files, taking in another emergency because their pet has been sick for five days but now it’s an emergency to be seen. 

Because we love our job

We carry that 150 lb dog even though we only weigh 110lbs and throw our backs out with a smile on our face.  We get urine, blood, feces on us every single day but make sure your pet is cleaner and better looking than when they came in.  The odor is probably from us.

Because we love our job

We are expected to be skilled to treat more than one species. We draw blood, place catheters and monitor anesthesia from animals with fur, feathers and scales but get paid far less than a human nurse.  Our patients don’t talk to us and tell us where it hurts; we have to figure it out. The 8 hour shift we were scheduled for is now at 10, and we just got another call for an emergency because we are on call this week.

Because we love our job
