You’d be hard pressed to find someone whose heart doesn’t warm at the sight of a puppy. Or find someone who doesn’t giggle when watching a silly cat video online. Although many people, particularly pet owners, find animals enjoyable, only certain people are cut out to succeed as a veterinary assistant.
Deciding to become a vet assistant takes a special kind of person. While loving animals is definitely a prerequisite, it’s far from being the only qualifying characteristic that determines whether or not working with four-legged, furry friends is for you. In fact, there are several other personality traits that you should consider. Ask yourself – are you...?
Having these characteristics is important, but above all you need to be driven to succeed. In order to complete your courses, become a vet assistant and improve your future, you need to be proactive and eager to make a fresh start to the rest of your life. And if the satisfaction of a diploma and great job prospects isn’t enough motivation, think of the dog kisses and cat nuzzles you’ll get when they say “thank you.”
