Veterinary assistants support the veterinarian and/or the registered veterinary nurse in their daily tasks. The primary job of a veterinary assistant is to anticipate the needs of the clients, patients, and the veterinarian and to facilitate the tasks that need to be completed that day.
The assistant must be a detail-oriented person who can make good decisions, respond quickly and calmly to crises, and maintain high standards of patient care. Assistants need to communicate clearly with the veterinarians, other hospital personnel, and clients to ensure that patients receive the care that they need. A veterinary assistant’s focus is ever changing according to the priority of the moment. This often requires significant multi-tasking and creative thinking ability. Assistants must remain calm and collected in the face of emergency situations in order to aid others through the tasks that must be accomplished. Assistants must share a firm belief in the quality of care we provide and communicate this sense of assurance to clients.
