Empathy. It is important that a vet tech have empathy—for both animals and their owners. If a pet is sick, its owner is understandably distressed, and needs his or her feelings to be acknowledged and addressed. At the same time, the pet also needs a tech's caring attention while concurrently addressing the pet's medical issues.

Love of animals. This may seem like stating the obvious, but a great vet tech loves all types of animals and is able to gain their trust. Animals can sense if someone is nervous or scared around them; therefore it is important that a vet tech is able to put them at ease in a stressful environment.

Good communication skills. It is vital that a vet tech not only be able to communicate well with pet owners and pets, but also his or her coworkers. Effectively communicating a pet's needs with all parties involved ensures the pet is receiving the best care possible.

Detail-oriented. Vet techs handle a large amount of information at once. It is crucial that a vet tech focus on maintaining accurate records. A veterinarian depends on the vet tech to make sure all records are up-to-date and accurate. It can also be the vet tech's responsibility to relay the proper medicine administration and other follow-up treatment to the pet owner.

Assisi Animal Health's clinical solutions complete the Circle of Care®—the collaboration of veterinarians and owners in animal health and healing. Our company helps veterinary professionals and owners improve the quality of life for companion animals using the Assisi Loop, the non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical healing device that is based on the same FDA-cleared technology used on humans. The device uses low-level pulses of electromagnetic energy to reduce pain and swelling, and to enhance recovery.
