Veterinary technicians should possess certain qualities that will allow them to successfully complete their degree program and excel at their future job. Strong interpersonal skills will allow the veterinary tech to smoothly handle upset and emotional animal owners.

I noticed that I treated all animals with care and compassion which grew to an obsession.
